Aug 9, 2008

So I've heard a lot of people get over heating, core shut downs etc on their MacBook Airs when on youtube, well I just watched a 5 min video and my temp never got above 60c at the default fan speed and didn't have a core shut down either. Or are you guys watching youtube for hours on end before you have issues?

MacBook :: Pro Slow To Increase Fan Speed / Set It To Do?

Jan 15, 2010

I have a base model June 09 13" Macbook Pro running 10.6.2, during normal use CPU temp. is fine, lower than my previous Macbook 07 edition. However, when I use handbrake, the temp spikes very quickly, I know this is normal as the processsors are being used at 100%. However, unlike my old Macbook, the fan takes a long time to spin up to counter the increase in CPU temp. I see 101 degrees centigrade and the fans are still at 2000rpm. After a few minutes they react and slowly increase to maximum. I am not comfortable with this temp, my old Macbok used to only get to 85 degrees centigrade. I have read about SMC fan control, is there a way to set this so that it increases the fan speed at lower temps without having a detrimental effect on battery life.

i gotta say, i love my mac and all, but it has such a poor download rate- mostly with torrents, though.

MacBook Pro :: Will 16GB Of RAM Really Increase Speed

May 13, 2012

I have a late 2011 MacBook Pro with 8 GB of RAM installed - I bought the Corsair memory from Amazon for under $50 and installed it myself. Amazon now has a 16GB kit fro Corsair for only $100 - the least expensive price I've found. The only RAM intensive app I really run is Photoshop CS6,but I do keep a lot of apps open at one time (Acrobat Pro X, Outlook, InDesign CS6, Illustrator CS6, Word, Parallels running XP, iTunes at the moment) and I was wondering if the extra RAM would actually help me out. I'm looking for some advice from people who have already upgraded to 16 GB... can you actually tell a difference?

Applications :: Safari Download Speed / Cutting Download Speed

Apr 9, 2009

I've got a real odd problem with safari 4. For some reason it is cutting my download speeds in about 1/2 from my server and many other places.

If I restart safari I will be able to download close to my 18 Mbps for a little bit but then it will just start to slow down and after about 30 minutes it will be down to about 6 - 8 Mbps.

PowerPC :: PowerMac Fan Speed Increase After 10.5.2

Feb 15, 2008

Anyone else notice a 1000rpm CPU fan speed increase on their G5 after the last round of system updates? My CPU's used to idle at ~120*f with a fan speed of 500rpm. After the 10.5.2 update they idle at ~89*f and 1500rpm. There is no perceptible noise change and I didn't even notice the change until I saw the cold CPU temperatures. I'm not worried about it, I'm just wondering if I'm alone or this is one of the system level .2 changes not massively publicized.

Software :: Increase The Internet Speed

Feb 14, 2009

I have an Apple Imac running OSX 10.4.11.I recently signed up to a satellite internet service and the speed and reliability are very poor.

It seems to take forever to download a website. When I use Google with Firefox, more often than not I get a blank screen. If I hit the reload button the page may or may not load. The ISP tech support point the finger at Apple; Apple support points the finger at the ISP.

The ISP tech support guy who installed the satellite service knew nothing about Apples but the service seemed to work fine when he tried his PC laptop.

Mac Pro :: Amazing Hard Drive Speed Increase

Mar 29, 2008

I spent two weeks obsessing on what type of drive to put in my new 8-core Mac Pro (january 2008). I was all set on spending $$$ and go with two 1-TB Samsung's but at the last minute I read this:

[URL] which posted better World Bench ratings than a 10k Raptor and is quieter than WD's Green drives - NewEgg had been out of stock of this brand new drive and suddenly got a batch in and I ordered two of these (WD Caviar 640 Gig / 16 meg cache w/only 2 drive plates). This drive is LIGHTNING fast....I've got before and after bench marks to post, I went from a 56.84 to a 102.91! Also, these installed so easily - not a single hitch!

Mac :: Westmere In New Mac Pro? - Speed Increase Come From DDR3 Memory

Jan 8, 2009

What do you guys think?I am also curious as to the clock speed of the new upcoming processors. Online it says the fastest one they have is 3.2 GHZ, so will the speed increase come from DDR3 memory and no frontside bus?Does anyone know the actual technical differences between the current processors and the upcoming, other than the memory and frontside bus?

OS X :: RAID Striped Increase The Speed With Regular USB HD?

Mar 18, 2009

I'm quite new to the OS (Level) Raid concept provided by the Disk Utility within Leopard OS X 10.5.6 and other OS X OS's, but I saw a great video showing 2 USB External HD's hooked up to a macbook running a raid to tie them together (striped or mirrored). This concept is simple! But heres my situation:I have an iMac 22" 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 4 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM, Running off of a "298.1 GB WDC WD3200AAJS-40VWA0 Media Hard Drive". I also have an External Drive "465.8 GB WD 5000AAV External Media".

PowerPC :: Adding RAM On Emac To Increase Internet Speed?

Apr 2, 2008

I was wondering. A friend of mine has a Emac 700mhz equipped with a 56k modem. She has an "intermediary" speed internet connection. With that, she can't really view a video - let's say from Youtube. It just keeps hanging. She only has 256mg of RAM which can be boosted to 1G, and I was wondering if by doing so, it would have a significant impact on her Emac capacity to view such content.

OS X :: Incredible Speed And Free Space Increase With Snow Leopard

Aug 31, 2009

Strange as it may seem, when I installed Snow Leopard, I immediately freed almost 40 gig on my Macbook pro (can't imagine why) and speed was increased by a factor of 2-3 times. One more thing is that parallels is now "almost" as fast as a native program, especially with Quicken for windows, which is the only reason that I use parallels.

Windows On Mac :: 64bit Boot Camp Heating Up - Increase Fan Speed?

Jun 26, 2010

I rarely run Boot Camp but whenever I'm using Boot Camp on my 13" MBP [Summer 2009 model] it really heats up a lot. I generally use IE8 or Google Chrome, & the Zune software. Not much besides that to be honest, occasionally I used MediaMonkey as well.

Anyway, point is for some reason - regardless of programs running - the notebook appears to be getting extremely hot.

I want to increase the fan speed while in Boot Camp so it doesn't run so hot. Any ideas/recommendations as to do doing this?

In OS X [10.6] it works perfectly fine so definitely something related to Windows drivers but increasing the fan speed should remedy, no?

Power Mac G5 :: Western Digital Raptor X 150GB 10kRPM SATA Drive - Speed Increase?

Oct 27, 2007

I have a Power Mac 2.3Ghz (see spec in sig) with the standard 250GB Maxtor 6B25050 hard drive. I was wondering, how I could increase the speed of the computer? If I upgrade the hard drive to something like a Western Digital Raptor X 150GB 10kRPM SATA drive would this provide any performance increase over the standard disk? Memory-wise I never have any "page outs", so I understand that a memory upgrade will not increase the speed of my computer.

Slow Macbook Pro Download Speed

Jun 12, 2012

I'm running the macbook pro 2,3 GHz intel core i5 version 10.6.8. Me and my friend are on the same wifi connection, but his macbook (thats 1 year older than mine) downloads 10 times faster. I'm getting around 0.24 Mbps while my friend gets around 1,8 Mbps. My internet is really slow and I have trouble opening a lot of internet sites. I wonder if ive done something to my settings so that the download limit is limited or something.

MacBook :: Download Speed Decreased With Airport

Sep 9, 2010

It started 2 months ago, ever since I got my machine back from the top case being replaced. I've had some Airport problems, the first thing is distance. I used to be able to go all over the place in the house and it worked. It says I have a full signal strength, but it's it and miss on it working from my living room (which is really only 3 rooms away with not very thick walls). I used to be able to sit in the living room and work on my computer for hours, but like I said it's it and miss on the connection. One minute it's working the next it's not.

Another room that seems to be the bedroom, which basically 2 rooms away but can see the router down the hall thing. The bedroom door opens to those two rooms. Here it works, but I sometimes have to wait up to 3 or 4 minutes the web page to come up. Safari 5.02 is the worse compared to Fire Fox.

My download speeds have decreased as well, my top download speed is 160k/sec but lately it's been 140k-120k/sec.

Now that I have giving you too much information, do you think it might be the MacBook or the Router. When they where putting the new top case on it could they moved the Airport antenna somehow. OR should I reinstall Mac OS X thinking that might fix the problem.
