latitude e4300 overheating

Jump to solution

Hi, I have a new latitude e4300, witch overheats up to 70C - mainly CPU. i called the support and they relpaced the heat conductor and the fan, but the tempetures still rise.

the model is equipped with sp9600, 200 gb 7200 rpm hard drive, 2048 mb memory.

what can cause it to overheat that much? and what are the normal tempertures for this computere, since it's a small one with a strong CPU?

thank you

Hi,

I changed the entire assembly (fan and heatpipe), with no major temp changes (-3 degrees difference). Now i use CPUGenie application (no longer marketed) which can lower my CPU voltage.
Currently, the maximum temperature at I was able to get, was 81 degrees C, after 30min with CPUBurn.

I found no other solutions. And believe me, I tried everything else:

- Mail to Dell
- Phone calls to Dell
- Updates and downgrade BIOS
- Changed all cooling system

I recommend you do a search for CPUGenie application and give it a try.
You have nothing to lose. No performance decrease. Only lower temps.

All the best,

I have a Dell Latitude E4300 with overheating.
My laptop heats up all too quickly and reaches 100 * C full load .
The representative told me that the only solution is to change the cooling system or motherboard . I did more research and it looks like is a very common problem with this model of laptop.
After weeks of researches (I changed the cooling system), I found a solution that I want to share with you :
My CPU is a Intel P9500 ( SLGAA , rev E0 ) which have V-Core support between 0.9V - 1.175V, but can operate without performance loss between 0.90V and 1.10V (according to Intel).

It was nice to see that after changing the ACPI table as follows:


0.925V @ 800MHz
0.975V @ 1600MHz
1.025V @ 2000MHz
1.037V @ 2400MHz


The benchmarks performance remained unchanged 100%, but the temperature dropped to 20°C!
20 degrees celsius is enormous for a processor reaches 100 degrees.

The software i used: cpugenie (no longer sells. there are only torrents)

Hi Stefan,

My E4300 is overheating as well and I wonder what exactly did you do to fix it. By saying "changed the cooling system" do you mean replacing a fan only, or maybe there is something more that needs to be done?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Best regards,

Janusz

Hi,

I tried to clean dust and change fan with no success.

I think it is impossible.

Looks like I need to buy a new one
