Laptop hot when rendering video in Adobe Premiere Pro

Hi!

When rendering video in Adobe Premiere Pro, my Lenovo IdeaPad Y570 gets very hot. According to Speccy, the CPU and motherboard reach up to 80-90 Celsius. Rendering also gets pretty slow.

Is this a problem? Is there a way to prevent it?

Thanks!

Can you hear the CPU fan? maybe it stop and should be replaced

You can also try clean it with compressed air but you better take it to computer lab they will replace it and its should not be too expensive

Thanks for your reply.

I hear something - like a hum that gets louder and louder, and quiets down when it stops rendering. Is that the fan?

I tried cleaning out the inside with compressed air, and it helped a little, but not much.

The temperatures you got are very high and can damage your CPU or Motherboard

You should take it to computer lab and get price estimate or if you have some computers knowledge you can order the CPU fan and replace it yourself

Your fan is working. But rendering is very intensive on your cpu. I guess that you have the standard fans, which aren't so good. I got some architects as clients who need to render. I would look for new/better fans. But it depends of your powersupply, how much watt. The best you Can do is ask your IT'er or a computershop to replace the fans with better ones and if necessairy a new power supply.

You Can do it yourself really easy. For fans I'd recommend

How can I figure out which fan I would need? (and that that's really the issue).

I've replaced the hard drive in my laptop - is replacing a fan harder than that?

Well it can be that the fan placed on top of your cpu isn't attached really wel. That's not super hard, but if you're not familiar with this, let an IT professional do it. Changes your other fans is really easy. It's just remove them from motherboard (click the adapter out) screw them out of their position.

To verify it. Open your case and see if the case fans spin normal (still I'd recommend higher rpm fans for you). And take a look at the cpu. Is the fan attached for 100%, does it spin, is the cpu black. If it's black that means you really need to go to a shop or your cpu can be burned.

You can test your fan speed changes with Everest

but your temperature is way high, can you feel the air flow on the left side or back of your laptop?

@Xaelian: How can I see if the fan is spinning, if I need to turn off the laptop to open the case? Also, do you mean that the actual CPU piece would be black?

@liorkr: I'm running everest now; where do I find my fan specs?
I feel hot air coming out of the side of my laptop while it renders video.

You Can screw him open and attach power to it for a few seconds to view it. But with a laptop I don't recommend it. Because it can cause static electricity. If I were you I would bring him to a shop for replacing the cpu fan or other fans.

You can find them under Computer -> Sensor

But if you can feel the air flow i suspect that there is a problem with your CPU

anyway computer lab is your best option

I don't see anything about fans in Sensor.

Well if your cpu is above 70degrees. It's really critical.

Read through this link, you Can troubleshoot with it. But your temperature is way to much, I would go to a laptopshop to take a look at the cpu. The cpu can be burned already so then he needs to be replaced.
