Hello, My name is Terry.

I have a question for you guys. A few days ago, I bought a brand new hp pavilion from Walmart, but my laptop is running around 40 to 60-celsius in idle. When playing games like Dota 2, the temperature reaches 70 celsius. Am I damaging components? Some articles on the internet say the normal CPU temp is 35 celsius but mine never runs that cool.

I updated all the windows updates and Bios. According to the task manager, my CPU operates around 2 to 20% when doing simple tasks.
Should I be worried about it? My laptop doesn't seem hot when doing simple tasks like browsing.

Laptop specification below:
I7 1065G7
Iris plus graphics (Integrated)
8gb ddr4 ram 2666
512gb ssd+32gb intel optane
Windows 10 Home

That's normal for Intel desktop cpus, not laptop ones. It's also normal for gaming laptops to run upper 80s - lower 90s under heavy load, because the cpu and the dedicated gpu share the same heatsink.

No.

You're running off an integrated gpu and not a dedicated one, so you shouldn't see the crazy temps like those on gaming laptops.
