I received my new ASUS laptop yesterday and according to RealTemp and CoreTemp, the average temp for this CPU on idle is in the mid 50s celsius. Even taking it outside for 10 minutes, the idle temps onlt changed a degree or two down. Is this normal for these CPUs or should I return my laptop?

Hello; The normal temperature of the i7-740QM Processor is 100°C, if it is running at 50 °C this means that is running within normal specifications, for more information check the following URL: http://ark.intel.com/Product.aspx?id=49024&code=Intel%C2%AE+Core%E2%84%A2+i7-740QM+Processor+%286M+cache%2c+1.73+GHz%29 http://ark.intel.com/Product.aspx?id=49024&code=Intel%C2%AE+Core%E2%84%A2+i7-740QM+Processor+%286M+cache%2c+1.73+GHz%29
