about browsers and cpu temperature

Post by blackbooty » January 12th, 2021, 7:38 pm

My laptop is running around 54-59 Celcius, I use Firefox, just thinking out loud, does the browser you use make a difference in the operating temperature of the laptop.?

Yes some are more efficient and if you open to many windows it affects the temperature of your cpu.

I have a cooling fan underneath my laptop, never hurts, when I see the temp go about 45C I plug in the USB.

The first part I did not know, the second part is a no brainer.

How old is the laptop and what operating system is on there?

Some programs are power hogs and will raise your temp. Graphic editors and broadcast software tends to have a high consumption. Some browsers are leaner than others but consumption is probably higher if you run browser extensions, use multipe tabs, several windows. The sites that you visit, online graphic editors for example, will most likely affect power consumption as well. When your consumption rises so will your temp. External fan can help but it might be a good idea to examine and adjust your habits or get a more powerful computer that can handle your needs.
