High temperature touching laptop

Hi guys, I’m using my laptop for some browsing and putting my hands on the keyboard I feel that the computer is too hot, not excessively anyway.
These are the temperatures I have detected, are they too high or am I wrong?
Than I have heard people complaining about the same problem, saying the problem is KDE, but I don’t know how true that can be true.
Thanks in advance.

These temperatures are totally fine, no reason to worry at all. :slightly_smiling_face:


No, it’s not true. Running KDE Plasma does not increase the temperature. On my desktop computer with KDE Plasma ─ and barring a heatwave like we’ve just had over here ─ the average temperature sits around 34-35°C, and lower when the machine is idle.

Any temperature issues with a laptop are generally due to the much smaller CPU cooler and the less-than-optimal airflow.


As @Wollie has said, temperatures looks normal for a laptop.

But I will add that when faced some overheating issues on my older laptop, I used thermald. But my CPUs were reaching temperatures around 75° C. Thermald brought this down to around 60° C.
