That and the fact that I move an entire 300gb at 100+mbps and the temp doesn't change a single degree from when I booted it up.  Both programs show no change and it's simply locked at 45 degrees Celsius.

 

irrational fears FTW.  I don't remember if it was like this before I installed the 3rd drive.

 

EDIT:  Played some GTAV and now all the drives read 36 degrees Celsius.  How useless, 2015 and we still can't get stuff to work properly.

I would rather not worry about how hot it runs, consider that microsd cards can become hot if you do heavy copy on them, and as ssd is basically the same technology, it is normal as long as it is within the stated operational temperatures.

 

Some time ago i was very concerned about graphics card temperature, in a laptop, so i bought a cooler. needless to say, it does not change much.

GPU (graphics card ) temps are a whole different issue and when run hard can often require or benefit from aftermarket cooling solutions. GPUs can run real hot especially if you case does not have great airflow

totally, and it really does not matter at all, if you do not do gaming or anything graphic intensive.

My XPS 13 came in tongue.gif I'm happy so far it's nice to have a decently fast light laptop. The screen is amazing. Only sad thing is that it gets a bit hot from Youtube. From our earlier RAM discussions, not that I'm happy there's no 16GB option since I would've jumped on that so fast, but I can see the case where the extra 8GB is useless because anything very resource intensive on this laptop is either going to be too hot or start slowing down the laptop. Not noticing any snappiness issues just browsing Youtube and random websites, just fan and heat.

Sadly the palm rejection isn't so great though I feel like it's just I haven't updated the drivers.

Yeah, when you type and your palm rubs against the touchpad it shouldn't activate.

really?

 

i mean, does anything in the world have such a great feature?..

 

mine always takes the page wherever it likes to because i slightly touch the pad with the back of my hand. I adapted to typing without touching the touch pad while typing, something like keeping my hands in the air... 

 

Great, i never knew i could except to get so much from a new laptop...
