  1. I bought one of these recently because i do a lot of 3D work in a program called blender. My only issue with it is the overheating. When rendering a scene in blender it will be running at temperatures of 175 degrees Fahrenheit or about 80 Celsius. When rendering something for 45 minutes strait that can become an issue. Do you know whether this is normal for this machine or could there be a problem with my hardware that needs fixing? Have you tested it yourself?
