Amilo Pro V3205 - temperature too high?

i have this NB, with Core2Duo processor T5500.
I have really high temperatures, anyone have the same?

Idle mode: 60'C CPU, 50'C HDD
100%cpu usage after 30mins: 75'C CPU, 60'C HDD

Hello there,
I have a FSC v3205 and in heavily load applications (benchmarks) the CPU can reach up to 74 C, but mostly the temps are between 50-60 C.
Also, the HDD is around 48-49 C, but sometimes can reach 51-52 (disk defragmenting). With notebook cooler the HDD is between 43-46 C.
You can buy a notebook cooler or some pads for more air ventilation.
Anyway, this notebook is not intended as a desktop replacement computer, so using it without proper cooling more than 1-2 hours in stressful applications might damage during the time some components (perhaps the HDD or mobo). So, try using it on hard surfaces only! The CPU is the least I care about, because is intended to work at high temps, but the HDD and the motherboard chipset might crash in a few years without proper cooling.
Anyway, I'm very happy with my notebook, despite the high temps; in my opinion, for a 12.1" notebook, this is the best money can buy.

That is too much, 55° is the limit imho.

75° for CPU under heavy load is not critical. One should remember, a laptop is not designed for hours of 100% cpu usage...
