Friends, this my first forum post in my life!
I am a proud owner of Dell XPS L501X with following Config:
When it was new, the temps were around 55C for CPU and 50 for GPU, which jumped up to 60/55 for CPU/GPU respectively during Firefox web sessions.
But after 2 years, the idle temps are 60/57 with 70/65 for web browsing.
All the dell crapware was removed after first usage.
70/65 is also during VMware 9 with ubuntu 12.10 as Guest OS (1GB RAM alloted) and WMP playing a song.
So, how should I go forward with this?
Have you cleaned out the fans or the inside? Is the fan even turning on? Laptops typically run hot which im sure you know but that could be the issue is the fan could be clogged or not on or something along those lines.
Last resort would be to redo thermal paste on cpu/gpu but the fans are a place to start.
My rig - I7-4770K, ASUS Z87-A Mobo, 16 GB Corsair Ram, AMD 7990 GPU, CoolIT AiO Cooler, NZXT H630

Blowing the built-up dust out of the laptop will help a lot.
Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.
