Re: How to reduce laptop heat while using qbittorrent?

I probably should have given a little more details about my setup. I'm using the laptop only as a media server (Plex/Sonarr/Radar/qbittorrent/Jacket/VPN) and for HomeAssistant running in Virtualbox. As long as I can keep that all running coolly the laptop is doing everything I need. It sits on a tab...

How to reduce laptop heat while using qbittorrent?

I have HP Elitebook 8560w (16GB RAM) that I run qbittorrent on. It's idle temp is 120-130°F. When I'm downloading a torrent at 3-7MB/s for longer than 5min the CPU temp jumps to 170-190°F at ~30% CPU utilization. I'm downloading straight to an external USB 3.0 harddrive. My question is if there are ...
