Hardware :: Which Is Appropriate Temperature Range For System (MBP)?
Apr 22, 2010
I just installed the iStat Nano widget in my MBP 15" Core 2 Duo 2.53 GHz. Amongst other things, it displays the system temperature, which is currently at 32 Celsius. However, I do not know which is the appropriate temperature range for my system, so I cannot know which level should be an alert for me. Could someone inform me about the appropriate temp levels? Moreover, I have ordered and expect soon the new MBP 15" i7. Are the same temperature levels appropriate for all Mac machines, including my new MBP?
My 13 inch Macbook has been getting kind of warm on the right side lately, and with iStat Pro it appears the temperatures of the picture I'm uploading. Are these temperatures normal?? Are the fans okay? I'm not sure, but I think it's been a little slow as well, and I've just bought it 3 months ago...
My Macbook Pro keeps a constant temperature of approximately 80-85 degrees Celsius with only the internet browser running. Is this too high? I have also talked about my computer shutting off on games that were not very graphic intensive like Torchlight.
What temperature is good for your macbook to run at. I'm usually always around 135-145 degrees. I have smc fan control, and i am running my fan at 3600rpm's please let me know what you think about the subject.
My first gen macbook is running with a CPU temp of 71 degrees celcius while running nothing. The mds and mdworker processes are taking up most of the processor and it wont change after quitting the processes or restarting or shutting down the computer.
Recently I bought a MacBook Pro 13", once I open it, it starts with 40C processor temperature, hitting 70 after sometime and stays there, and when I run an application it hits 80-90C? Is this normal! Whats the maximum temperature of my 2.53 processor!
I recently bought a MacBook Pro 15inch, the 2.66Ghz model;Nice laptop, but I'm worried about something: I play some games from time to time and I have been noticing that the CPU Temperature goes very High.My record is 92?C just moments ago while playing World of Warcraft.ou can see a screenie here: http://drp.ly/6gW9a (In this screenshot the Fans speed was about 2600rpm although under 90? they drop to 2000rpm)The laptop itself is not hot though, it's warm. (And I like it <3)
I have an original MacBook Pro 15" (A1150) that randomly shuts down. Seems to be running very hot. I've already had to replace a bulging battery, and TechTool Pro has indicated a temperature-related S.M.A.R.T. failure with the HD.
If I downgrade the HD from 7200 RPM to 5400 RPM, will that help with the heat issues? Any other heat-related fixes? I know the 13" MacBook Pro suffered a random shutdown syndrome, but I didn't know if the 15" was affected too.
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!?
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?
Right now to connect to Xbox live like this ~wireless = ethernet Actiontec router/modem(verizonfios)~~~~~~ macbook=====xbox360
Right now my NAT is set to moderate and I am trying to open it. I've tried opening ports but there are so many IPs/computers in the network settings I feel like it might be interfering. Another thing is that I manually set my ethernet ip to 10.0.0.1 and my xboxs ip to 10.0.0.2. This is obviously not one of my ISPs IP adresses so should I change it to one that is in the DNS range?
I try to connect my projector Benq mp625p and MacBookPro(late 2008) via HDMI(adapter + cable). And projector tells me(on the screen): HDMI Out of Range. And, of course, MacOs doesn't see any external monitor. I think it is because, by default, MacOs wants to make mirror on the second screen, but max. projector resolution is XGA(1024x768). How can I turn off mirroring before the second monitor will be connected? But maybe problem isn't in just mirror display.
Additional Info VGA, S-video, Composite connection works great. And HDMI cable with adapter are 100% good(I have tryed them before on two plasma panels). Additional Info I've tried to connect this projector in BootCamp WinXP (on the same MacBook), and first time it didn't work, but when I set: Expand Desktop on the second screen everything began work properly!
I got a friend who just moved into one of our apartments at back of our home and I want to extend the range of my wireless router so he can connect his PS3. The only two ideas I have so far was to get an extending phone cable and move the modem as close down the hall of my second floor abode, however I still don't think the signal strength be enough.
So I found out be repeaters and I like an explanation more as to how these works, what model/brand would be easy to configure for mac, cons, etc.
I was wondering if there is a quick way to name a range of files. I have many photos of my garden, for example, all with different names. Is there a way to choose a range of these, and name them all Garden1, Garden2, etc?
I have the last G5 imac made before Apple went Intel 4 years ago. It works fine. It has wifi.
But heres the deal. I just moved into an apartment in NYC. There are TONS of free wifi hotspots down the block from me that I can pick up on my ipod touch when I go outside. But INSIDE my apartment, my imac is out of range.
I need SPECIFIC advice on what I need to extend the reach of my imac to pic up wifi signals.
Again, these are FREE hotspots, so it's all legal.
Do I need an antenna? Or something else? Or both? What kind and how would I hook it up. How far is the reach? Be detailed, but keep it simple so a laymen can understand it.
I have a linksys wireless system set up in my home right now, but am trying to extend my wireless range to a few more rooms. I have tried to set up my Airport Extreme Base Station as a remote and have the linksys as the main station, but it doesn't seem to be working. Does anyone know if this is possible (i.e. have the linksys as a main station and Airport Extreme Base Station as a remote)? One a similar note, even after resetting the Airport Extreme Base Station and connecting it directly to the DSL modem, I cannot connect to the internet. The computers connect fine to the wireless network, but the internet will not load.
Using the Finder in 10.5.8, pressing Cmd-F to get to the Search window. I want to look for jpeg files created during December of 2008. I first specify file type = image, press the + to add another constraint, choose "creation date before" . . . today's date comes up by default, with little up/down arrows at the right to allow changes. Well, the arrows do nothing, and I can't edit the date string directly. The only change I'm able to make is when holding down the Alt key, which allows me to use the little up/down arrows to cycle through the months (but not days or years).
I'll be getting a MBP (hopefully soon, darn you update cycles!) to run Maya 2009 (also coming soon) and was wondering how it runs on the current mid-range MBPs. Is it 'fast'? Regarding current models, since we know nothing of the specs for the new ones: does the VRAM matter? Since I hear it all the time: am I better off running it under Bootcamp? (Maya 64 is Win-only.)
I'm used to Bridge now, it's faster than iPhoto and I can use my own folder structure instead of the ridiculous "events". Places/Faces and the slideshow of iPhoto is great though.
Anyway, when I'm in "thumbnail view" in Bridge, the thumbnails exceed my screen width. So if I'm on the most right thumbnail on my screen, and I go one right, it goes about 3 more pictures to the right (which I can't see) before jumping to the next row (starting at the most left picture of course).
And I don't see any sliders: no horizontal and no vertical. I can scroll vertically though, but not horizontally.
On the Bestbuy website they market the airport extreme as having the capability to become a range extender and the guy in the store said it would work with a linksys. The Linksys is a WRT150N. I have the airport extreme set-up in my room and it has a solid green light. When I go into the set-up for it I click join network and It sees the linksys and I select it and it says everything is working fine but it stays on the green light and the signal isn't being extended.
Due to the way my wiring is set-up, I have to place my Time Capsule on the basement floor (broadband cable modem). I use my computers on the first and second levels and am getting about a 60% signal strength. How I can increase the signal strength without having to move the TC?
I have a bluetooth mighty mouse which I bought off of Amazon a couple of weeks ago, but I seem to be having some problems with it. I can't seem to connect to it when I'm more than about 6 feet away from my Mac Mini. My Apple wireless keyboard has no such limitation. I also have trouble connecting my mouse, but this may be due to the range issue. Is this the limitation of the mighty mouse? I once used one with my MBP and I never needed to check the range. As I bought it off of Amazon, can I still get it checked out and replaced at the Apple store if this isn't normal? I live right next to the Apple store and I don't want to get into the RMA process at Amazon. If this range is normal, I'm going to have to return it and buy a different mouse.
I currently have the netgear router set with an IP address of 192.168.1.1 with DHCP enabled and no security set up (i originally had WEP enabled but this made the problem worse.
I then have two sitecom range extenders set up connected to the router wirelessly to extend the signal in opposite directions. One is set up with an IP address of 192.168.1.2 and the other 192.168.1.3 with default gateway set at 192.168.1.1 and DHCP disabled. This sets the network up working for a short time however as soon as more than one machine tries to connect to the network it all shuts down. It seems that the setup cannot assign IP addresses to more than machine at a time.
I have Mac computers, and have a wireless connection using a standard O2 router. I'm just about to build the office/studio in the garden and I need an internet connection here, but the O2 box hasn't got the range. It's about 100ft between the router and the hot seat with a wall and some planting in the way. My question is this: Will an Airport Extreme base station give me more range than the O2 box? Will an Airport Extreme work with O2? Would I be better off laying an Ethernet cable along with the rest of the electrics all the way up to the studio and do away with the Wireless idea? Can a (approx) 100ft Ethernet cable give me a decent signal or is that just too long?
