Applications :: Different Temperature Readings In IStat And Temperature Monitor?

Jan 4, 2011

I noticed that iStat and Temperature Monitor report different temperatures for the same readings on my G5 Powermac Dual Processor System. For example as I am writing this Temperature Monitor is saying My CPU A is 46.8C and CPU B is 46.7C. In iStat it says CPU A is 55C and CPU B is 54C. Which is right!?

IMac :: Fan Speed And Temperature - Normal Readings

Apr 22, 2009

I downloaded and installed Temperature Monitor and iMac Fan Control - mainly for observational purposes and not for toying around with the fan speeds and I've got some questions. Mind you, I haven't tampered at all with the fan speed settings, just installed Fan Control. Here are my readings (while browsing the internet with Safari and doing a chat via iChat):

Fan Speeds:
CPU fan (desired) 1300 RPM / (current) 1530 RPM
HD fan (desired) 2100 RPM / (current) 2099 RPM
DVD fan (desired) 1300 / 1298 RPM

CPU Heatsink: 92F
Internal HD: 108F
Internal DVD: 95F
GPU Heatsink: 107F

Are these, under the circumstances, normal readings?

Applications :: IStat Not Showing GPU Diode Temperature?

Sep 29, 2009

I use iStat to keep an eye on the temperature of my macbook pro.

I noticed today that the temperature of my gpu diode dropped to -128 degrees Celsius. I decided that I should probably update my mac OS from 10.5 to 10.6. So I used my university's net install to install 10.6.

I updated iStat to version 2.0. Then I noticed that GPU diode does not even show up in the menu. Therefore I downloaded Temperature Monitor and the GPU diode still does not show.

However the GPU diode will sporadically show up. however, it has not shown up in a while now.

I can still see the temperature of the GPU heatsink however.

Does this mean that the GPU diode is bad? Or did the mac os X disable the reading of the GPU diode?

If the GPU diode temperature sensor did go bad, is there any problems with running the laptop without getting it fixed?

Applications :: Looking For Program To Monitor Max / Min Temperature?

Jan 27, 2010

I'm fairly new to Macs so I am not quite familiar to what applications are out there that are available to me. The thing is I am currently using widgets in my Dashboard (iStat Pro and Temperature Monitor) that monitors system temps, but the problem is it tells me the temperature of what my MBP is at that moment. I want to know if there is a program that can take the max and min temps so I can keep track of how hot/cool my MBP is at all times.

Hardware :: What Is Average Temperature CPU Temperature For Standard Usage?

Feb 19, 2009

I apologists straight away if this have been covered recently, but i need to ask.I have MacBook with Intel Core Due Processor, 2 GB ram.What is the average temperature CPU temperature for standard usage ( I know that standard usage is very arbitrary, and by this I assume safari, iTunes and let say Pages to be the only major apps running ).I use iStat pro widget and according to it my CPU temperature is 55*C. Is this too high? Lately the fan has been turning on more recently almost without any apps running so I think that there might be some hardware problem. I ran HardwareTest it found nothing.

The macbook is 2 yrs old. Do i need to get it cleaned or is there something else I should be worrying about?

Mac Pro :: GPU Monitor Application Give Accurate Temperature?

Oct 11, 2009

I'm currently using Early 2008 Mac Pro and the ATI HD2600XT which came with it. When I use the ATI utility or GPU temperature monitor apps like GPU-Z on bootcamp (Windows XP SP3), the temperature is about 87C on idle, and goes to like 93C when running benchmark softwares. (I ran the Final Fantasy XI benchmark software). I know this is hot.

Do the GPU temperature monitor apps give accurate temperatures? Or are the temperatures displayed wrong? Because I noticed that the temperature for the CPUs are displayed higher on Boocamp than on Mac OSX.(Used HWMonitor on Bootcamp and Hardware Monitor on Mac OSX). And I have a question for the people who use or have used the Early 2008 Mac Pros and the ATI HD2600XT with it. How are your temperatures?

IMac (Intel) :: Change Display Settings Such As Color Temperature And Backlight Brightness On Monitor?

Nov 30, 2014

My wife has an iMac (I don't know any other way to identify it e.g. model number), and she has this 3rd party calibration software that I'm trying to use. I am not used to a Mac, and I cannot find the display settings for the monitor. There are no buttons on the monitor, and when I go to preferences, I can only find the brightness control. I've googled this and cannot find a clear, simple answer. I have used every version of Windows (currently on 8.1 on my PC) and it's easy for me on that platform. I suppose it's just that I don't really know how to navigate Mac OS.

iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.8)

High MBP Temperature / Too Hot To Use

May 18, 2012

So recently my 2008 Macbook Pro has been getting really hot, even when it's not really being used. It's now too hot to put on my lap and even sitting on a desk it doesnt get any better, and I am only running Chrome and iChat. Here are the Temp Monitor and iStat Pro sceenshots: I feel like it's been getting progressively hotter over the last few weeks, but what do I know. Also, why are the fans at 4500 rpms when Im only running chrome and iChat?

MacBook Pro :: CPU Temperature Is Hitting 80c?

Dec 16, 2010

So I recently bought myself a Macbook Pro 2006 Model 15". And the idea was, buy it second hand and get the fan fixed totally the price of 600$. Which is great, because it works and things are fine.

But why is it that when I'm on Facebook on either Opera or Safari? My temp hits 80c. I've called up the Mac Store here in Ireland. They asked me to use iStat Pro to find out my temperatures. So I have, and all my temperatures are fine (around 30-50c) but my CPU temperature is hitting 80c.Honestly, this is quite scary to see that a computer I've bought hits 80c when I browse the internet?

Mac Os X 10.5.8
Processor: 2GHz Intel Core Duo
Memory: 2GB 677MHz DDR2 SDRAM
Macbook Pro 15"

I'm getting fed up with dealing with the Mac Store, if you guys know what I need to do to fix this problem? I'll open it myself, and fix it.

MacBook Air :: What Is The Acceptable CPU Temperature On The Air?

Feb 26, 2008

I have just brought the 1.8GHz + SSD version. It's really fast and quiet, until the fan spinning like crazy.

What is the acceptable CPU temperature on the Air?

Mine got up 89 degree C (192.2 F) MAX for a while, when the heat-sink is at much lower temperature, like 60-ish. Can't remember what tasks it was doing. It's 54 right now just with the Websites running, and the heat-sink is at 43.

Is it normal? Or should I worry about the thermopaste on the machine?

MacBook Pro :: How To Cool Down GPU Temperature

Sep 6, 2009

I happen to have a Late 2007 MacBook Pro (The specs are in my signature). My model was also the one affected by the 8600Gt issue so I had taken to a nearby Apple Reseller in Dubai in 2008. It's been months since that happened.

However, I've been monitoring my CPU & GPU temperatures and I'm still confused about what is ideal and if I should be worried about anything.

(I took a screenshot of my iStat readings and there's a difference of atleast 11C between the GPU Diode and GPU Heatsink)

Is there anything alarming that I should be worried about?

MacBook Pro :: Fan On But Temperature Will Not Drop

Oct 13, 2009

I'm using SMC Fan Control and it constantly hovers around 55-58 degree. Once it hits 60's the fan will bump to 6000+ rpm but will not drop. Even with light work load (Firefox, Adium, iTunes) temperature doesn't drop even when the fan is at 6000rpm until I close everything. Is this normal?

OS X :: Macbook Temperature Keeps Spiking?

Nov 10, 2009

I've got one of the older white macbooks, and recently my cpu temperature has been spiking up to about 90 degrees celsius when I do things such as run online games or stream video from online. I don't think it ever used to do this before. Could this be a problem of stuff getting clogged in the fans? Or is it something else? Or, is it normal?

OS X :: Finding Operating Temperature Of HDD

Dec 1, 2009

Is there a way for me to read the operating temperature of my HDD?

I recently replaced the standard HDD in my 20" Intel iMac with a new HDD that's 1T and runs at 7200 RPM...

Now I've read about high temperature causing HDD failures.

Also, I've seen software you can download where you can control the fan speed to help cool the HDD...Anyone heard of this? If so, should I download such?

MacBook :: Measure Your Pro's Temperature?

May 20, 2010

I see people stating the temperatures of their MBPs, fairly often in this forum. How do you do that?

By the way, I got my new 17" i7 MBP, yesterday, and it runs noticeably cooler than my 2006 core duo 2.16 MBP. Nonetheless, I'm still curious what the processor temperature is, and curious how you measure it.

Thank you for any help you can provide.

I just upgrade my mac from a T2300 to a T2600, I applied the thermal paste pretty good but with the heatsink just having 3 plastic pins that hold it down instead of 4(one broke) im kinda worried about it overheating. It's been running great for almost 2 hours now (while installing the mac os x disc)....well is there a way I could view the temperature of the cpu (instead of waiting for my mac to shutdown unexpectedly)?

Hardware :: Max Temperature MBP Core 2 At 2.66 GHz Should Tolerate?

Dec 17, 2010

I'm currently running an all new MBP 13" at 2.66 GHz. The tests I made today (large textures handling in 3D environment, OpenGL, music playing in background) gave me an internal CPU temperature as high as 83*C. Should I worry about this? What is the max temperature a Core 2 Duo at 2.66 GHz should tolerate, in a MBP? I need to know because I'll use pretty often the laptop to do some "heavy" 3D demonstrations, in front of a classroom. I don't want the MBP to be prematurely damaged by heat.
