MacBook Pro :: System Starts With 40C Processor Temperature
Jul 31, 2009
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!
what are the maximum operating temperatures for the various computer components such as the processor diode, processor heatsink, the hard drive? I have my iMac in a medium sized enclosed area which does not allow for air flow.
Info: iMac (21.5-inch Mid 2011), Mac OS X (10.7.2)
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.
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.
Would it be possible to take the Intel processor out of my Macbook Pro (2.26) and replace it with a 2.8 Intel from a Dell Dimension 4600? I don't plan on doing this anytime soon, I just wondered if it was possible because they are both intels. Are there different dimensions for each processor and if there is
So I open my system preferences to change my background. And it is beach-ball-of-death-ing obnoxiously, it's nearly impossible to change my background, and it's taking up 100%+ of my processor. I've tried restarting, but I've seriously never had this issue on any of my Macs before.
Ok the patient here is a new 2.0 Ghz Macbook. I just woke it up- or tried to. the sleep light was on solid, not pulsing with as it does when sleeping. It didn't respond to key presses of track pad presses. It did power back on after pressing and holding the power key. The desktop was greyed out and a metered progress bar came up and it slowly booted bakc up then resumed as normal. Is this that deep sleep mode, or is this something else?
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?
Over the last few weeks when I have been starting my computer up I get the white blank screen for a few mins then it goes to a flashing globe for a few more mins then the apple sign then it finally starts. I have been thinking about taking my computer in to get it fixed cause I cant seem to figure out whats wrong with it. I have looked it up on google and everyone seems to be saying to go to startup disk and then pick the right network volume to start up from, but when I go there there is only one choice its called "Network Startup" and there is a globe with a ? on it for the symbol. Also I read a couple places that its the hard drive warning me that its crashing? is this true? I also have had a couple freezes the last couple days.
I was searching my Energy Saver preference pane in spotlight cause i was lazy to open the application with the mouse, and a Processor .prefpane was given as one result. I clicked on it and it asked if I wanted to install it. The pane allows you to control how many CPU's you want to use if you have more than one installed.
Just wondering if anyone has ever encountered this or if any experts out there know of the issue.
I have a spare White Macbook (late 2008: Core 2 Duo 2.1GHz, 1GB, 120GB) that I'd like to set up for my brother to use to introduce him to the wonderful world of Macs. The problem it is having is that when I have a battery connected to it (I tried 2 different ones included a known-good one that is brand-new just purchased from Apple) it powers on and gives me the chime, but then immediately shuts off unexpectedly giving that little "whine" sound like if it just lost power all of a sudden. However, when i take out the battery, and just plug it into the Magsafe AC charger it works fine. Also when just trying to run on battery it does not turn on at all. Here's some cliffs:
1) Macbook with just battery does not turn on 2) Macbook with battery + Magsafe AC charger connects powers on, gives the chime, but then immediately shuts off making the "whine" sound as if the power was suddenly cut off 3) Macbook with no battery connected and just the Magsafe AC charger connected works fine.
Do you guys think this is either:
A) battery connector issue (the little piece with the metal wires that the battery connects to. ~$50 part) B) Logic Board issue
I already tried resetting the PRAM and SMU to no avail.
I noticed that iStat and Temperature Monitor report different temperatures for the same readings on my G5 Powermac Dual Processor System. For example as I am writing this Temperature Monitor is saying My CPU A is 46.8C and CPU B is 46.7C. In iStat it says CPU A is 55C and CPU B is 54C. Which is right!?
I apologists straight away if this have been covered recently, but i need to ask.I have MacBook with Intel Core Due Processor, 2 GB ram.What is the average temperature CPU temperature for standard usage ( I know that standard usage is very arbitrary, and by this I assume safari, iTunes and let say Pages to be the only major apps running ).I use iStat pro widget and according to it my CPU temperature is 55*C. Is this too high? Lately the fan has been turning on more recently almost without any apps running so I think that there might be some hardware problem. I ran HardwareTest it found nothing.
The macbook is 2 yrs old. Do i need to get it cleaned or is there something else I should be worrying about?
I just had a question about my fan, whenever I'm on my computer for about 30 minutes plus, my fan starts making a kind of grinding sound, and my computer exceeds 200�F. I do play World of Warcraft, and I know this most likely causes the heating issue, but it only started about 2 months ago. And i bought my Mac mid-2009 and have had no problems until now.
So I recently bought myself a Macbook Pro 2006 Model 15". And the idea was, buy it second hand and get the fan fixed totally the price of 600$. 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?
Specs: 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.
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?
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?
