What temperatures are normal for Intel Core i7 7700HQ?

I am measuring the temperature of the 4 cores of the processor and they are:

 

55-70° C - when I just start my laptop

 

75-90° C - when I use Resolume(program for projecting visualizations on the wall)

Is this normal temperatures, especially in the case when I don't use any special program, but just start the laptop..?

 

Basically, where I can find this kind of information, about the normal temperatures of the processor?

 

Thank you.

None of these temperatures are really concerning, though I hope that the max temperature never goes higher than 90c. If you laptop's BIOS supports the configuration of the blower speed control, you might want to raise the minimum duty cycle to get it down to a worst-case of ~85c.

After running something like Resolume for a while and then shutting it down, what idle temperature do you see the processor then settle at?

Very soon after I shut down the Resolume the temperatures go to around 60°C.

It doesn't settle lower than that? That's a bit high (though not panic high). As I said, you should check if there are any parameters for configuring the fan response in BIOS Setup. If there are, you might want to configure the response to be a little more aggressive.

Hope this helps,

Can you tell me where exactly to search for this kind of fan response?

No, sorry, I can't. I don't have one of these laptops, so I can't identify whether these settings are supported or where you would find them in their setup tree. If they are not obvious, then you should contact Asus's support folks and ask them (that's their job, after all).
