My computer is a dual G5 1.8 processor .My ambient temperature is 79 f For processor a and 81 for processor b. Is this to hot or that. I was wondering it was. can a dirt be the cause fro that I never did see if it was clean. I may need to use a inspection mirror to look at them.

PowerPC :: Way To See That Temperature Sensor Is Working?
I could just by the replacement fan and swap it out but I am wondering if there is anything else that could be malfunctioning and causing the fan to NOT spin up - anything I can check before forking out the cash.Is there a way to see if the temp sensor is working? Could it be the LB? Can I test the electrical supply to the fan by using a multimeter? If so what setting/voltage, etc should I use to read that? And lastly, is there more than one fan?

IMac Intel :: Temperature Sensor Faulty - Now Not Restarting
Since the first time I got my 27" iMac, I was hearing an annoying loud fan noise. After several months I decided to run the hardware test included in one of the cd's I was given with my new mac. The test returned a hardware error code witch apparently meant that one of the temperature sensors was faulty. I took my mac to one of the Greek authorised service providers in Athens ( and some days later, I got it back. They told me there that one temperature sensor of the graphics card wasn't working, so the had to change the card with a new one.

When home, I was happy to see that the iMac was working fine, without fan noise at all. But that friday night, suddenly after some hours of work, the mac shut down. I tried to reopen it, but the screen never worked again even if the mac seemed to be on. What did they do to my mac? Why now I have to wait until Monday to take the mac for repair? (Authorized service providers don't work on weekends here) Since I work as a freelancer, I cannot work until they repair (again) the mac. How will I be compensated for loosing my work? What should I do?

Way To Show Just Ambient Temperature Sensor Reading On An IMac?
Is there a very simple way to show just the ambient temperature sensor reading on an iMac? Not for geeky or engineering purposes. Just to know the temp that the machine and the human are in.iStat widget shows it but really tiny, buried in all the other data,and only if you launch Widgets.Ideally, it would just work in the background and the temperature would show up in the menu on the right side. Maybe next to the time. Alternatively, as a little floating window on the desktop.Yep, just want to see the room temperature using the iMac thermometer.

Windows On Mac :: Normal Temperature In Boot Camp
I'm wondering if anyone could tell me what the normal temperatures are when booting Windows on a Macbook Pro.I'm getting around 60-75 GPU temperature and about 48-60 for CPU when I'm doing normal things like I do in Snow Leopard.Is that okay? Is it also okay to have such temperatures for like 5 hours straight or so?I'm getting around the same temperatures when I'm using Snow Leopard, but the laptop doesn't feels as hot as it feels when I'm using Windows, and that is bugging me much.

MacBook Pro :: High Temperature Shutting Computer Off / Temperature Over 200 Degrees Fahrenheit
My Macbook Pro reaches a heat of 85 degrees Celsius from watching a simple video on youtube. Thats 185 degrees Fahrenheit, 15 degrees Fahrenheit under the maximum operating temperature. I already complained to apple techs that my computer shuts off randomly. I finally realized that my laptop shuts off because it reaches temperatures of over 200 degrees Fahrenheit. I have pictures to prove this.

Can apple give me a new laptop if it is still under warranty? Do you think that apple will pull the same lame excuses like "oh just shut it off every so often" or "don't put it on your lap?" I am enraged that I can't put a laptop on my lap!!! THATS NOT A LAPTOP APPLE!!!!!!!! And why would I have to shut my computer off if I am doing important work????

I've just been really ****** at apple and their inability to satisfy me for this issue. I feel like suing apple.

Hardware :: What Is Average Temperature CPU Temperature For Standard Usage?
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?

Applications :: Different Temperature Readings In IStat And Temperature Monitor?
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!?

IMac Intel :: Temperature Sensor Readings Of My New System 24" 2.66 Ghz, 4MB RAM, 640 HD
I bought my brand new iMac a week ago at the Apple Store in "stock" condition - ie no additional RAM, HD or other upgrades. Only change from the norm is that I have two firewire storage drives attached - plus I am accessing my old mac in a target disc mode - so that makes three I guess. The external drives are connected in a daisy chain fashion. (I can't believe this would matter but I thought I'd mention it anyway.) I am wondering about the temperatures of the new mac and if they are in line with the norm. The top of the aluminum case does feel pretty warm at times, but I hear anecdotally that this is to be expected.

MacBook Aluminum :: 75 Degrees Average Temperature - Is It Normal
My refurb macbook runs pretty warm (average 75 degrees celcius) durring basic operation, web browsing, word processing, etc. This causes the fans to kick up the RPMs making it run at a relatively high noise level, even as I type this (running no other applications). I can't imagine this is normal.

IMac :: Fan Speed And Temperature - Normal Readings
I downloaded and installed Temperature Monitor and iMac Fan Control - mainly for observational purposes and not for toying around with the fan speeds and I've got some questions. Mind you, I haven't tampered at all with the fan speed settings, just installed Fan Control. Here are my readings (while browsing the internet with Safari and doing a chat via iChat):

Fan Speeds:
CPU fan (desired) 1300 RPM / (current) 1530 RPM
HD fan (desired) 2100 RPM / (current) 2099 RPM
DVD fan (desired) 1300 / 1298 RPM

CPU Heatsink: 92F
Internal HD: 108F
Internal DVD: 95F
GPU Heatsink: 107F

Are these, under the circumstances, normal readings?

MacBook Pro :: Arrandale Ix Normal Operating Temperature?
my biggest problem on my old laptop was overheating, so I like to keep a close eye on my temperature. I'm using istats menu thingie, showing me my temperature (in degrees F). I've been keeping an eye on it ever since I got my new i7 MBP.

It tends to run around 100 or 110 degrees... 120 if I'm running firefox.

MacBook Pro :: Is It Normal For My Battery Temperature To Be At 87ºF
According to the coconutbattery app, my laptop's battery temperature is usually around 87ºF. I got worried when I checked my sister's macbook pro and noticed that her battery temperature is around 25ºF (with the same app). I put a fan next to my laptop for an hour and the battery only cooled down to 85ºF. The temperature stays the same regardless of it being plugged in to the charger or not. Is it normal for my battery to constantly be this hot? I play computer games fairly regularly, but even when I have no applications open the battery is still hot. I am currently running Snow Leopard 10.6.8. I don't want to upgrade to Lion at the moment.I have already tried resetting the SMC, and nothing happened.

MacBook Pro :: CPU Temperature Safe Normal Values?
I recently got my 13 inch macbook pro. I'm using the iStat pro widget to monitor my CPU temperature. I noticed that when streaming an HD video, the temperature reached 74C. I also tried re-encoding videos with handbrake, and the temperature reached 98C before the fan kicked up and lowered it to around 80C. Are these values safe for my computer? Will temperatures like this affect the lifespan of the CPU?

MacBook Pro :: What Is The Normal Operating Temperature On A 2008 Model
I have noticed that the last year of use on my MBP the temperature is rizing up to 90 Degrees celsius, and i was wondering, What is the Normal Operating temperature on a MACBOOK PRO 2008 Model?

Many of these laptops are reaching this temperature and it might be a reason that my laptop freezes ... Other than that my MBP now is working because i use a cooler with a fan to cool it down.

Power Mac G5 :: Found That The CPU A Had Reached A Temperature Of 99 Degrees C?
I have a G5 2.5 Quad running OS 10.5.8.During this past week, it froze and shut down a few times. Looking at the logs I found that the CPU A had reached a temperature of 99 degrees C., right before shutting down. That is hot.

I opened up the machine and found the radiators and the machine clogged with dust.I vacuumed and used canned air to remove the dust build up. Since then the machine has run well.I have installed the program "Hardware Monitor" which monitors sensor temperatures, fan speeds, CPU amps and volts.

The CPU A has had an operating temperature of ~47 degrees C., while CPU B runs around ~35 degrees C. a difference of 12 degrees. When I had a load to the CPU the temperatures of A and B rise but are still roughly 12 degrees different.Even stranger, CPU A Core 1 is drawing 10 amps while CPU A Core 2 is drawing .5 amps.CPU B Core 1 and CPU B Core 2 are both drawing about 12 amps.Why would CPU A Core 2 be drawing so few amps while the other cores are drawing 10 times more? Could this be why CPU A is 12 degrees hotter?I ran Techtools and the G5 Quad passed the CPU test. Running programs has not presented any issues since I cleaned the machine.Should I be concerned and is there anything I can do? A new CPU in an older machine doesn't make financial sense to me.

Power Mac G5 :: Optical Safe Upper Temperature Limit For CPU?
I have Temperature Monitor; it suggests 88 degrees C as the upper safe temperature for the G5 model I have (2.7 DP).

It's been running great for almost 2 hours now (while installing the mac os x disc)....well is there a way I could view the temperature of the cpu (instead of waiting for my mac to shutdown unexpectedly)?

Intel Mac :: HD Temperature - SSD   Factory HD?
I have this problem: it seems that HD fan never increase, despite of high temperature. 

Machine is: 

Imac 21,5 mid 2011

I7 from online store

1 TB HD as it comes from the store

added an SDD, Vertex 3, not removed the CDROM, its installed on its native port. 

The SSD has Lion installed and its boot disk. Its temperature seems always 30°C, it never changes 

The HD temperature reached 60 °C, but the HD fan never went up from its minimal 1100  

So I suspect that the SMC thinks that the temperature to use to start the fan is 30°C, wich is wrong, and completely ignore the mechanical HD, wich I worried will burn out soon. 

Already resetted SMC, PRAM, done the hardware test even extended, no problems. 

I want a solution wich links the HD fan to the original HD temp as it should. 

Is it possible? I dont have any third party SMC software and I dont want them.

Info:iMac, Windows

Mac :: When Start Computer, Temperature Is About 42 Degrees C, But When Let It Run It Goes About 71?
I think my right fan may have died. When I start my computer, the temperature is about 42 degrees C, but when I let it run it goes to about 71. I'm not doing anything tasking, just some simple word processing on Pages and and a few tabs open on Chrome. I've downloaded Fan Control to try and take some preventative measures, but now I've noticed that my right fan is reading at 0 RPM, while the left fan is around 5200RPM. If I put the computer on standby, then it takes a bit to stop the fans and it will cool down, but then on resume it will just begin again.
