Laptop overheating

Hello guys. I just installed Bunsenlabs, and right off the bat i noticed that my laptop is heating more than normal for some reason. CPU usage is normal, so i don't know what the problem is. I'm using a 80K4 Lenovo ideapad 500-15ACZ. This is the output of sensors:

Adapter: PCI adapter
temp1:         +0.0°C  (crit =  +0.0°C, hyst =  +0.0°C)

Adapter: PCI adapter
power1:       24.25 mW (avg =   3.08 mW, interval =   0.01 s)
                       (crit =  15.00 W)

Adapter: PCI adapter
temp1:            N/A  (crit = +120.0°C, hyst = +90.0°C)

Adapter: PCI adapter
temp1:        +62.5°C  (high = +70.0°C)
                       (crit = +100.0°C, hyst = +99.0°C)

If there's any more commands i need to show you guys please tell me. Thanks in advance!

Re: Laptop overheating

Well if it isn't getting to the "High" temp value I guess it isn't actually overheating. (My laptop tends to be in the range 45-65 C).

Does it get too hot if you put some load on it?

Re: Laptop overheating

If you are using Buster... in my experience (my pcs) Debian 10 runs hotter than 9.

Are you sure that command showed something significantly different earlier?
What distro was installed before BL?
Which BL version have you installed?

Have you cleaned the vents?

What sort of hardware is this? How old is it?

My all-intel desktop runs significantly lower temperatures.

And how did you configure sensors? I'm not sure what k10temp-pci-00c3 is...

BL quote proposals to this thread please.

Re: Laptop overheating

^ and the number 1 question that should be answered is what is the ambient room temp ?

My laptop runs a lot better now i have an ssd drive, i live in a hot climate so i try to make the room temps cooler and have the laptop on a decent stand to allow for airflow under it. Typical usage for me will see all 4  cores get to around 55c - 60c . Under load it will go up to 70 and 80, but my laptop now is not really suitable for hard tasks, its too old.
