    Hello,

    I have had an R580 for a couple of years now and it seems to getting really hot, even when just idling.

    This is something that I have never really thought about before as I know laptops generally run hotter due to confined spaces.

    I have just checked the temperatures with SpeedFan and it says that the GPU and CPU core temperatures are all at around 70 degrees when the computer is not doing anything.

    Is this normal or do I have a temp issue?

    Thanks

    70°C is fine for CPU/GPU temperature, but it's worth checking it when you've loaded it up to see what it is. Generally the sign that it's getting too high is that the CPU won't run at it's full speed so keep an eye on clockspeed when you do so.
