AMD turbo dose not let my computer go over 1.9ghz when this system ran windows it would turbo up to 2.3ghz. The CPU in my laptop is A10-4500m can turbo up to 2.7ghz and a max working temp of 100C. in windows the CPU would hit 110c and 2.3ghz (I’ve owned 5 HPs all of them run hot. 3 Intel, 2 AMD I’m guessing this is normal). In Linux the Max temp I have got is ~85C. I have check that turbo core is enable by going here /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpufreq/boost and it was enabled. I Would like it to trubo for programs like handbreak obs and ssr.
system specs: hp pavilion 17 Laptop amd a8-4500m radeon 7640g 8gb ram
OS: Ubuntu14.04.02 LTS with gnome
PS. I would like it to overclock the gpu because in windows it would run at ~750 and with linux it runs about 650.
I would have but its a laptop and I use a laptop cooler. BTW this is for windows. I just want the same performance as in windows. it ran like this from start for over a year I sure it would have failed by now, if temp was the problem. It could be reading wrong because the gpu reads 85 but the cpu reads 110. the only thing that could cool it help is maybe new thermal paste?
what would could and will go wrong if the CPU continues to run like this? I know with my desktop I have had a 6990 when the core temp +95 plus the screen would go black. Dose any one else get these crazy temp with hp pavilion 15/17-xxxxx amd laptops
HP laptops are shit and they run hot and loud.. I used to own one before i smashed the screen.
To reduce your temps is to disassemble your laptop to the heatsink and the fan. disassemble the fan by removing the screws to get to the heatsink that is inside of it. clean it regardless and reassemble the laptop.
oh and make sure that you replace the thermal paste with NT-H1 or something non conductive.
I I'm going to replace the thermal paste I also normally I'll clean it every 6 months or so. I just kinda hard to clean because you have to pull the mobo out to get to the heatsink. Witch requires complete disassembly of the laptop. I would never recommend HP computers to any one else. The original I was going to buy a Toshiba but best buy did not have them in stock, so I got the HP for pretty cheap.
But why would it thermal throttling at 85C that’s 15 degrees below Max temp? i know in windows I once got a max temp of 137C in gpu-z playing Skyrim. It make me wonder how hot it would have to to get before it shuts down because over heating
