Other people know more about this than me, but I'll note that my SB2 15" has never hit 100c and has maxed out at 92c in all of my testing. I'd be suspicious of a machine that hits 100c at any point, that seems to be an indication with some other people here of a problematic machine.Just got my 15 inch SB2 Friday and am trying to determine if I have a problem. Using Best Performance on intensive games, I'm getting ~84c - 93c. Are those good temps? What's strange is that sometimes my temps actually increase -after- I exit the game. I've seen them hit 100c afterward when I am back on the desktop. Is this normal? It's almost as if the CPU fan ramps down before it has properly cooled off the CPU
Well it has been some time, and since nobody responded on my findings here, I returned my SB2 15" for another one.
As it turns out, the voltage max VID is about 1.26-1.34v and thus lower than on my last unit.
I therefore confirm that some batches have flaky CPUs, replace immediately as long as you can.
