Hey, my Lenovo laptop screen feels pretty warm, on one side, when playing RuneScape.
Question: Does anyone know if hot air being blown from the ventilator onto the laptop screen, could cause damage to the screen overtime? Or can it be safely ignored?

Below are my current temperatures, when running runescape-launcher-2.2.4

$ sensors
iwlwifi-virtual-0
Adapter: Virtual device
temp1: +41.0C

pch_cannonlake-virtual-0
Adapter: Virtual device
temp1: +62.0C

coretemp-isa-0000
Adapter: ISA adapter
Package id 0: +59.0C (high = +100.0C, crit = +100.0C)
Core 0: +57.0C (high = +100.0C, crit = +100.0C)
Core 1: +56.0C (high = +100.0C, crit = +100.0C)
Core 2: +55.0C (high = +100.0C, crit = +100.0C)
Core 3: +59.0C (high = +100.0C, crit = +100.0C)

High temperatures are never a good thing, and they will contribute to wear over time, but I'd worry more for your processor and graphics than for a screen. However, in most cases your machine should shut down automatically if the temperature exceeds a tolerable level, which is fara higher than you might think. I've seen processors running at 80-90+ degrees (albeit, that wasn't under normal circumstances). If it's not designed to automatically shutdown, you can expect it to become unstable and crash at a certain point instead.

Your temps are not what I would consider abnormal, but if you're concerned why not get a riser for your laptop to create additional airspace underneath? Depending on where the vents are, it might conntribute to airflow and bring those temperatures down - higher temperatures impact performance, so there should be some degree of benefit in any case.

Hey thanks for the reply.

Right now i changed the cpu scaling governor from "performance" mode back to the default "powersave" mode.
Also i reverted the "high performance mode" in nvidia-settings back to "auto"
And i also lowered the nxt settings from "ultra" to "medium"

As a result, in high performance mode, the fans where spinning like mad, and the screen was getting hot, now.. in low performance mode, the fans actually are silent, and the screen does not get warm anymore.

Only downside is that i am running nxt in medium settings now, instead of the ultra settings.
But i bought this new laptop with nvidia gtx 1050 just for better graphics, so i wonder if having ultra graphics in nxt is worth, getting a hot temperature laptop, and noise fans.

What do you think? med performance or ultra performance?
And next Monday i will look into buying a laptop cooling table.

to compare the sensors output in my first post, with the medium performance mode:

$ sensors
iwlwifi-virtual-0
Adapter: Virtual device
temp1: +42.0C

coretemp-isa-0000
Adapter: ISA adapter
Package id 0: +43.0C (high = +100.0C, crit = +100.0C)
Core 0: +43.0C (high = +100.0C, crit = +100.0C)
Core 1: +42.0C (high = +100.0C, crit = +100.0C)
Core 2: +41.0C (high = +100.0C, crit = +100.0C)
Core 3: +42.0C (high = +100.0C, crit = +100.0C)

It is clear to me now, that laptop health and a low temperature laptop is more important, then having ultra graphics and overheating the laptop.

Sad enough i can not take full advantage of the nvidia gtx 1050 in this laptop, but at least it is still better then the integrated intel gpu, even though the graphics in runescape nxt are the same.
Because with the intel integrated gpu the fps can drop between 60 fps - 55 fps.
But with the nvidia dedicated gpu the fps will not drop bellow 60 fps.

Last thing i would like to say about my laptop getting extremely high temperature while playing nxt on ultra graphics, is that, even though the graphics card is powerful enough to run on ultra:

The sensors should not go past 70 degree Celsius for hardware, in general.
