    Wow wow wow! I am running an overclocked touchpad, 1.5 Ghz, under load when trying to watch movies or play angry birds the peak so far has been 39c! I'm afraid its going to hit 40+ and the operating temperature has been said to be 40c max!

    Even on 1.2, it doesn't make that much of a difference. Maybe it is because I am running it in the Targus Truss Case?!

    What do I do!?!

    You know that 40C is like... really hot summer day temp? I doubt that will damage anything. I think the "operating temperature" refers to the environment.

    I wouldn't worry about 39/40. The temperature of wherever you are at seems to affect the temps quite a bit. Currently my TP is at 28c, it usually goes around 32-38 when watching a movie. HOWEVER. When your TP was at 39c was it hot in your house/or wherever you were? My TP has hit as high as 44c on a very hot day, it gets really hot in my room. I was concerned at that point but everything turned out fine. I read in another post that past 50c is bricking temps. So, while 39c is no ideal- you do not have to be worried.

    How do you measure the CPU temp?

    The only temp monitor that I could see is from Dr. Battery which I believe indicates the temp of battery, not the CPU.

    Or is it the CPU?

    Thanks

    Download govnah from the preware feeds to see the CPU temp

    The reason its on fire after watching a movie is that if you use any program other than stock to watch video, which you almost HAVE to do, you are going to be maxing the cores out for the entire runtime of the video. That is, your processor is going to be running at or near 100% the entire length of the movie decoding the video, instead of having the GPU lightly decode it using hardware acceleration, which is only available for the stock video player.

    So is it safe to watch movies like that ?

    No worries, temps in the 49s is safe, my 26 month old Pre has been in the 50s numerous times and still is going strong.

    Yep, if you see an mp4 with the official movies app, you it shouldn't get that hot.

    Nevertheless 40c it's not that bad, especially in the summer.

    No, it really isn't. I mean, its not going to catch fire and it probably won't harm the CPU, but increased temperatures are TERRIBLE for your battery. And realize, you will NEVER be able to replace the battery in this tablet outside of the first year.

    So personally I wouldn't be doing it too often.

    Also, your battery life will be pretty crappy while the tablet is hot.

    The Arrhenius equation defines the relationship between temperature and the rate at which a chemical action proceeds. It shows that the rate increases exponentially as temperature rises. As a rule of thumb, for every 10 C increase in temperature the reaction rate doubles. Thus, an hour at 35 C is equivalent in battery life to two hours at 25 C. Heat is the enemy of the battery and as Arrhenius shows, even small increases in temperature will have a major influence on battery performance affecting both the desired and undesired chemical reactions.

    I've been overclocking my PC lately, so I laughed when I saw that the OP is worried about 40C temps!

    My 2500K thrives at those temps...

    that's probably the dumbest thing I've heard...how can you even compare this to a pc temp wise...

    Just don't put it on your lap. You just might fry your cajones !

    This morning, I noticed that my touchpad melted the TPU skin I had on it and the case (along with the Touchpad in it) got stuck to the carpet like someone glued it with a piece of gum.

    I think the plastic panel on the back near the speaker on top is slightly deformed now. Didn't expect that to happen.

    Other than this the touchpad is running fine and both the speakers are working.

    Call HP. I had a 32gb wifi model that the case melted behind the left speaker (screen landscape, speakers at the bottom). HP had a customer rep personally handle my case. She was extremely helpful. She had a new touchpad at my door the day after my touchpad arrived at their HQ. See pics.

    cjf243 - Thank you. I will do that and share what happens.
