It's pushing it. I've seen my AMD64 notebook hug that temperature a few
times, but that is only when I have it runnung high intense apps with it
unplugged or in charging state due to battery heat; running at 100%
capacity at all times.
You may want to have the cooling system and fan checked out.
I had a similar issue with my AMD64 when I first started using it. I tried
the oh-so-elegant "touch" test (touched the side of the heat sink as close as
possible to the CPU (I know, I know). The blister I expected never happened
and the inside of the case was pretty cool. Turned out to be a BIOS problem,
reading the wrong temp, corrected sometime later by MSI, board manuf. I also
have a separate temp sensor that reads temp near CPU without using the board
BIOS and this was very different from board reading. I had called AMD about
it, (another response to your query), and they simply said that that temp
(50-58C under little or no load) was within operating specs. Hmm. Didn't
seem to me to be good unless I wanted to cook breakfast really at the
computer. So. You might check heat at CPU, if inaccessible in notebook, how
hot does the fan exhaust seem? You might then start to see if there is a
recent BIOS update to correct this, if it really needs correcting. Just my
