There are multiple variables involved, leading to a very wide gap with what multiple systems could see.
Low load thermals are not as important as full load thermals.
40C is your normal; others will see more or less.

guys what should i do?
No cpu stress tests under auto Vcore with Intel cpus! Even more so, if there's some OC profile active.
The experience will almost always be subpar.

is 240m weak for this cpu?
No.
