Just had to replace the logic board on my PMG4 DP 1.25GHz machine. For the life of me, I can't remember the operating temperature before I swapped the board. Currently it's running at 130F - 140F. This seem about right for the other folks running these machines?
I downloaded a program to monitor my late 2008 unibody Macbook Pro's temperatures. Just a few minutes ago while playing music/playing an ONLINE game real briefly it warned me that my CPU temperature was too high. (167˚ F) Is that too high of a temperature? What should the "range" be?
I was just adding some Quicklook plugins when my temps started to soar. I have restarted, repaired permissions, removed said plugins, and tried other accounts. Nothing is lowering the temps. Weird thing is is Activity Monitor is showing NOTHING using the processor nearly enough to jump my temps to 85 C with nothing running.
I'm "controlling" the issue for now by ramping my fans to full speed. Even with this I am hovering around 70 C...a good 10-15 C above what I am normally at (and was at 30 minutes ago). *Note: Normally running fans at 6000rpm would give me temps in the mid to low 40 C range
I have a MacBookPro5,4 2.53GHz with one fan and only the 9400M. After updating to 10.6.3 the operating temperature seems to have risen from about 43 degrees C to about 48. It has been getting warmer here in Japan so the ambient temperature is different but I still think this rise in temp. is due to the update. I have smcfancontrol installed and set to 2500rpm instead of the normal 2000, but it seems to be not enough to keep the temp. under control, as it did before the update. Any relatively hard use of the cpu and the temp goes up to 60 degrees.
I've just been watching something on BBC Iplayer (using opera) and the CPU temp is up to 65 (with ambient temp 33). Is this normal? (finished watching and it's now at 60.) Also, the last few days I noticed the mouse button not working properly, sometimes I need to click twice for it to actually work, and if I was holding down the left button to drag, it kinda lost it's connection (so while dragging and moving things around the desktop they'd stop while the cursor still moved as I was still moving the mouse... and the mouse button was still pressed in all that time). I'm thinking it could be to do with temps as it has been really hot here lately (but then shouldn't the fans kick in?).
I've done an archive and install but it was still the same last night (mouse 'click' seems to be working ok right now). I 'think' the temps have been going up to 69, but I didn't make a note for sure. Should I do a clean wipe and install in case one of the programs is conflicting or something?
I just started using the aluminum MBP 15" and used to have 13 Macbook aluminum. and as far as i can tell the 13" did not get as hot as my 15" I just installed a fan and temp controller and even with running the fan higher then default os 10.6 temps reached 165 F I freaked out and cranked up the fan to 5000 RPM and temps dropped so far. So, How hot are these MBP supposed to get until it no longer safe?? And its not even close to being where the MBP is: sitting in my office on a desk where its cold and i have to drink tea to stay warm.
im running at cpu temp of 82C with my fan running around 2000 rpm with the mbp in my sig. Is this a normal temp to fan rpm ratio? Why is bothers me is that im use to my Mb flaring up its fans every time it got hot.
Alright I am wondering what temperature the computer has too get too in order to shut itself off. what I mean is, at what point will the compute shutdown or crash before it overheats? I think my mac mini (07 model) is getting too hot and it shut off a few mins ago (not gracefully shut down more like someone yanked the powercord out ) and I think that the shutdown may be related to heat problems.
idle temps: (celsius) ambient:54 CPU:72 CPU heatsink:60 Northbridge1:57 Northbridge2:56
Load Temps (celsius) ambient:53 CPU:83 CPU heatsink:64 NorthBridge1:55 NorthBridge2:57
It just froze on me about 20 min ago. All I was doing was listening to iTunes and browsing the music store. I looked at the temp of the computer and it seems kinda high, I don't know too much about this.
I've notices a really strange behaviour with my 13" MBP. The fan simply doesn't go faster on high loads, which results in a CPU temperature that is far beyond the operation specification Intel provides.
Seems as if the SMC controller is kind of broken. I tried to reset it, but that didn't change anything. A PRAM reset also didn't work.
I was wondering wat the recommended temperature for the macbook 13". I've got SMC fan control and it shows mine it 56C but i set it to Higher setting but it doesn't stay onto the minimum speed i set it.
I'm nervous to install the Firmware update 1.3. As I've heard from a lot of people the update has crashed their mac. I know it has to do with the fans and temp. My Mac book pro is running at 135 F at 2000rpm is this ok? Is it too overheated. Should I install the firmware I'm so nervous to install it just in case it breaks. Here's the rest of my specs...

I have a 2008 black macbook with 10.7.2 installed (2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 2 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM). When I press caps lock, no green light turns on and letters remain in non-capital form. Even when I hold Caps lock for a few seconds, nothing happens. If I physically connect an apple keyboard via usb to my computer, caps lock doesn't work.
I told myself not to do it. Don't update the Safari software to 4.0, you know how they always mess up these things. And yet, per accident I did. Of course Safari 4.0 doesn't work. Every time I open it, it shuts down. iChat also doesn't work anymore, and even the Dashboard shuts down every now and then. In addition, the computer feels incredibly slow. I can't download rapidshare links on iGetter anymore and everything just feels wrong. Countless threads have been opened on this matter with a variety of different problems for different people. Yet I have not read a proper solution. I have seen all kinds of technical solutions being offered but I'm not a computer wiz and I do not know the terms they use. I just want to go back to Safari 3.2 or at least the one before the 4.0 But I read that deleting Safari 4 and reinstalling 3.2 won't work because of a certain webkit that got installed with it, making it impossible to go back.
Since I just lost my hard drive on my iMac 24 Intel, I am using external hard drive to backup via Time Machine. My question is what procedures are needed when you disconnect ext. hard drive? Do you change Time Machine from ON to OFF?
I know that I have to eject the ext. hard drive using proper commands, but what happens whenever I reinstall the ext. hard drive? Does Time Machine start over from the beginning or just update for changes since my last backup via Time Machine?
When I go on trips, I store ext hard drive in a safe and this is why I am asking.
Why are Apple applications are so much larger than similar Microsoft applications. Some examples: Word -12.7 MB and Pages - 273.4 MB: Excel - 11.7 MB and Numbers - 138.6 MB. Both Word and Excel are sophisticated programs and I would have assumed they would be large, and that since Pages and Numbers are relatively new so they would be lean, but the opposite seems to be the case. They all work well except Numbers is slow. Is that a function of size? Is obesity epidemic in programming as well as programmers?
In the last 2 weeks before my MP shipped, I've asked 3 Apple Geniuses at Apple stores and Apple Tech support about running dual DVI 23" Cinema Displays with 4870's. They ALL said I would need a second card. When I attempted the install, there were only 2 power cord clips on the back face of the main board. Both being used by the onboard Radeon 4870. What to do next? Another call to Apple support offered me a nice Indian girl who I could not really understand. Finally, I called a local non-Apple shop that I frequent for hardware and service issues. The very nice service tech told me to take the 2nd card back, since that original 4870 will drive 2 monitors perfectly, in my case, with a simple Mini DisplayPort to DVI adaptor for the 2nd 23" display.
how would you install any 2nd graphics card, if a 4870 takes up both power clips?
I'm on a IMac OS X (version 10.5.8) and I just noticed a bit of a change in the graphics while playing Heroes of Newerth. I left all the graphic stuff on medium quality, and I've noticed now that when it is on full screen the picture is sketchy. When I minimize the full screen (apple m) i realize its a lot smoother than it is in wide screen (no kidding huh?). Before I thought it was just due to me having the IMac wireless, but I've noticed it's been happening for a week already and I usually get better bandwidth when no one is home. So is this a graphics card issue or what and if so how would i deal with this?
I just picked up a second 24" ACD with the mini display port. I already have one, so the mini display port on my 4870 is in use. So I think I need an adaptor to go from the MDP on the second display to the DVI on the 4870.
However, this adaptor has a male MDP and a female DVI. The ACD has a male MDP, so I think I need an adaptor which is a female MDP and a female DVI.
I find it a little strange that it is so difficult to put two identical monitors on the Mac Pro. I did search the forums, but kept getting hits for the above adaptor and I am not sure how it would work.
I just got my new Mac Pro and installed a second 8800GT which works perfectly fine, and also 8GB (2x4) of OWC RAM. When I boot the system it now says 8GB RAM instead of the 10GB I have installed (8GB from OWC and 2GB default Apple).
I have them installed as:
Riser 1: 2GB | 2GB | 2GB | 2GB
Riser 2: empty | empty | 1GB | 1GB
The little book that came with the system said if I had 3 pairs to use slots 3&4 which is why I set it up that way. Are there any issues with doing this? Do I have the RAM in the right slots? How can I set this up to see the full 10GB?
