    That would be the 9600M GT. I'm surprised that your fans aren't running that fast to being with.

    I typed wrong, 9600M GT it is!

    With my fans running at +- 6000rpm, i still got 86°

    the fans would have kicked in when the CPU hits 80 degrees, unless you tampered with the settings using third party applications...

    That's much better. The fans should hit that if you're gaming.

    Over 90° C is when I would be concerned about my hardware.

    Over 90C is pretty darn hot and from what i see, your fan speeds start with a 2 and a 1? around 2000rpm i assume? Thats way too low. that should be full blast at that temp.

    Are the fan speeds working properly? full speed is 6000rpm.

    I am playing fallout 3 on vista on the latebook pro.

    Do you guys think its bad that the computer gets too hot and the fan kicks in at 6k. this is for the whole time i play. do you guys feel that this stress from playing the game will greatly hurt my computer in the near future?

    The fans are supposed to kick to ~6000 RPM. You're not hurting your computer.
