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.

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!?

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?

MacBook Pro :: Fans Suddenly Making Wierd Noises / Fans Are Hitting Something?

Jul 27, 2009

the other day i wake up and open my macbook pro and immediately heard the fan making noises ive never heard it make before. i checked istat pro. the fans were going at 2000rpm. this is when i started to get concerned since i would never hear the fans at that speed before. the difference was day and night. it sounds like the one or both of the fans are hitting something. i always hear the noise when i start up or wake up from sleep and after a while (30 minutes to an hour) it usually goes away but has come back once without me turning off or putting the computer to sleep. its a refurbished less than a little more than a month ago. im hoping its just some dirt that made it through keyboard and will eventually go away because i dont want to send my machine in to get manhandled by apple repair. has anyone had something like this happen before?

Mac Mini :: Unable To Wake Macmini By Hitting The Space Bar?

May 18, 2012

Since purchase of my macmini (2011 model) I have been able to wake it from sleep by hitting the (wired) keyboard space bar.However, I recently updated the OS to 10.7.4 using the combo (1.4Gb) update, since when I cannot wake the macmini in that way.

Now, after putting the macmini to sleep, pressing the spacebar causes it to shut down. I then have to switch mains power off and on again at the wall socket, after which the macmini starts up from shutdown condition. I am by no means an expert, and have not been fiddling with settings, so I am in need of advice on what could need resetting to allow me to return to the previous simple 'wake up' approach!

OS X :: Cannot Eject Windows Disc From IMac Even Hitting Command Option + O + F?

Dec 8, 2009

Got a new 27" iMac recently and am trying to set up Boot Camp. I partitioned the HD and then installed Windows XP. The installation went smoothly, and then the computer restarted. Only problem is the Windows XP system disc is still in the CD drive. Now the computer wants to boot from the CD and can't. I get a message that says, "Press any key to boot from CD. Disk error Press any key to restart", and I have no way to eject the disc. (There is no pin hole next to the CD slot that I can put a paperclip in to force it out.) I've tried restarting and then hitting Command + Option + O + F (found that advice at Apple's site). No joy. Apple support is closed for about the next three hours

Software :: ITunes 8.1 - Long Pause Before Playback After Hitting Play Button?

Mar 14, 2009

I upgraded to iTunes 8.1 when it showed up on Software Update. Since then, I've noticed that when I hit the Play button to play anything in my Library, there is a long pause (about 6-7 seconds) before the audio file starts playing. Have any of you had this happen to you?

This is on 10.4.11 on my iMac G5. My drive is getting short on space (and I'm aware of issues do to short drive space ), but it didn't do this before the upgrade to 8.1. Let me know your thoughts...

Mar 16, 2008

First of all, Noob imac owner here. I was just handed down an old imac g3 400mhz desktop that doesn't power at all.When hitting the power button on the unit or keyboard, the units screen makes a noise. No hard drive or green light comes on at all. At dead silence in the room, i can hear the screen flicker, like a tv would come on. I went to go about and read a few problems before, replaced the battery and even tried a new power cord. Any Ideas?

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?

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.

MacBook :: GPU Temperature Monitoring?

I know iStat Pro and iStat Menus can monitor the CPU temperature, but I was wondering if there's any way to monitor the GPU temperature. I've been playing StarCraft II, and my CPU temperature has been getting to 80, which I guess is common with MacBooks, but I want to see if my GPU goes critical.

MacBook :: High CPU Temperature - Fan Exhaust?

Oct 13, 2010

Systematic Endpoint antivius protection installed on my computer. Recently I have been seeing high CPU temps - around 70/75 and fan exhausts around 4500. I have been researching on other forums and I have seen that it could be the virus protection that is causing this. Now I know that I don't really need the virus protection because well, I have a mac. So I was wondering how can I successfully uninstall the protection. And if anybody on here disagrees with it being the virus protection, then what do you think it could be? Right now I am only running Firefox for surfing and Itunes.
