i do find my i7 gets heated up really fast. a simple task like installing a program (like inkscape) , it gets heated up and the fan starts to work overtime...

when doing windows updates, while the updates are downloading (400mb)....within a minute, the temperature shoots up and you can hear the fan blowing quite loudly...

also when i was watching a youtube video, it also gets hotter...from warm.... will continue to monitor

note: the part that is hot is at the right side when in landscape mode.
Bro, you may want to consider running the benchmark for throttlestop and compare the heat with my i5 results. Think it will be interesting to see how the heat and speed differs. See link below for my results...
