MacBook Pro :: Arrandale Ix Normal Operating Temperature?

Apr 21, 2010

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.

OS X :: Finding Operating Temperature Of HDD

Dec 1, 2009

Is there a way for me to read the operating temperature of my HDD?

I recently replaced the standard HDD in my 20" Intel iMac with a new HDD that's 1T and runs at 7200 RPM...

Now I've read about high temperature causing HDD failures.

Also, I've seen software you can download where you can control the fan speed to help cool the HDD...Anyone heard of this? If so, should I download such?

MacBook Pro :: Operating Temperature Limit For It?

May 30, 2012

The specifications, for MacBook Pro, mention that the operating temperature is 10 to 35 Deg C. Does it mean that MacBook Pro will not function above 35 Deg C? Is it recommended to operate MacBook Pro always in an air-conditioned environment? As I plan to buy for the 1st time, I seek an answer.

MacBook Pro :: Finding Operating Temperature - How To Cool

Oct 18, 2009

When I'm putting a heavy load on it (Compressor, Handbrake, etc), the fans crank up to 5000-6000rpms, and the temperature hovers around 97-98C (207-210F). I've never seen it go above 210...so...it's just shy of being able to boil water for me for a nice cup of tea.

Even when it's idle - just doing email/web/etc, it run's at 120-150F (49-66C), which is the temperature most people on the threads I've found say is the max for their portable.

Do you think this thing is built to handle those temperatures day in and day out? Is there any 3rd party hardware to make it run significantly cooler (I have smc fan control - but lately, since the last software update from Apple, it won't change the temperature anymore, so I can't keep the fans pegged at 6000 which does bring the temperature down under 200F.

MacBook Pro :: Finding Safe Operating Temperature For The 330m GPU?

Dec 29, 2010

I googled and couldn't find the Tjunction for the GPU.

Mine went as high as 90c / 194f. When I play games it usually stays around 86c / 186.8f with the fans in overdrive.

IMac :: 27 Inch Quad Core I7 HD 4850 Temperature?

Nov 18, 2009

I just wanted to share what's been going on with my i7 which I received last Friday. Immediately I was curious about what sort of temps I was going to be running so I installed Temperature Monitor. At idle my graphics readings hover around 40C. However, when playing Warcraft 3 my Graphics Processor Temperature Diode reaches up to 84C.

I don't really know what temps are acceptable, I was just wondering what other i7 HD4850s out there are running. To deal with this seemingly high temperature I installed smcFanControl and boosted all fan speeds by 50%. Noise doesn't seem to be proportional to fan speed at these levels so no probs there. Now I run at 64C at load and I am at peace with that.

Shouldn't the OS be increasing fan speed on its own?

Would like to know what you guys think and observe in your i7 machines

Desktops :: Maximum Operating Temperature Inside The New 27-inch IMac?

Feb 3, 2010

Does anyone know the maximum operating temperature inside the new 27-inch iMac? I've read that they shouldn't be operated beyond 35 degrees Celsius [95 degrees F]. But that's the ambient temperature, not the computer's internal temperature.

I ask this because I have been running iStat for years. It monitors various things, including internal temperature. I always keep an eye on this during warm days, even when I have the air-conditioning on. So it would be good to know the maximum temperature.

OS X :: Normal Temperature Range For Macbook?

May 25, 2009

My 13 inch Macbook has been getting kind of warm on the right side lately, and with iStat Pro it appears the temperatures of the picture I'm uploading. Are these temperatures normal?? Are the fans okay? I'm not sure, but I think it's been a little slow as well, and I've just bought it 3 months ago...

IMac :: Fan Speed And Temperature - Normal Readings

Apr 22, 2009

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?

Windows On Mac :: Normal Temperature In Boot Camp

Mar 8, 2010

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 :: Is It Normal For My Battery Temperature To Be At 87ºF

Jun 20, 2012

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.

Mac Pro :: 2009 2.66 Quad - Is This Temp Normal?

Mar 17, 2009

I wanted to see how hot my temps would get at max so I ran handbrake for 30 minutes and Cinebench simultaneously over and over. This room does not have A/C. As soon as Cinebench started running the multi core render for a while the machine was at max temp.

CPU A 157 Fahrenheit Northbridge 126 Fahrenheit

Remember, I set the temps to display in Fahrenheit and not Celsius. So I would assume CPU A was maxed out at 70 Celsius.

Is this okay/normal when pushing the machine to a max temp? And what in the world is the Northbridge temp? It just looked important so I listed it. lol

Also how can you tell the temp of the GPU?

IMac :: Quad Core I5 OR Base Model Core I3?

Jul 28, 2010

I know other threads exist, but they don't have responses specific to me so what's the harm in one more?

So, I am going to be selling my late 2008 15" MacBook Pro this week to get a new 27" iMac and I just need some legitimate advice from those "in the know" on processors.

I plan on having this iMac for about 3 years to do the following tasks:

1.) Record and edit HD cable (1080i) from an Elgato EyeTV HD - will include some encoding of 2+ hour sports game recordings

2.) Some light editing of 720p iPhone 4 clips in iMovie

3.) Surf the web, iTunes, iPhoto, Mail, and all the other standard stuff

Assuming budget is an issue, would you recommend me spending the extra money for a Quad Core i5 iMac or would I be ok based on the info above just going with the base Dual Core i3 model?

Like, will there be a considerable difference in the two machines (factoring in processor and graphics card) that will really be worth the extra $300 - $400 for 3 years of use?

Power Mac :: G5 Quad LCS Repair?

Feb 2, 2012

Whilst servicing my LCS I had the misfortune to break the outlet pipe fom processor A's heat transfer block. (For anyone attempting to remove the factory fit tubes DO NOT try pulling them off-cut them above the barbed pipe with snips and then carefully cut them lengthwise with a craft knife and peel them back). I first tried repairing it with super glue  to no avail and then tried araldite rapid which formed a strong bond. I was concerned that any bending moment would break the join so to minimise this I cut a 3mm length of the new clear PVC tube, slid it down to the base of the pipe and liberally coated in more araldite. To further reduce bending I moved it to processor B's slot as the pipe for that is more upright. I filled the system with a 50/50 mix of antifreeze and distilled water. I then spent hours bleeding the system without much success.

It hung tonight while trying to burn a CD using Toast 9, which I could not even Force Quit. I closed it down using the Power button but when I rebooted it wont play, burn or recognise any media in the CD/DVD Drive! I have had the original replaced a year ago. Has it died or is it a more complicated software or OSX problem? I am running Mac OS X 10.5.8 (9L30) Kernel Version:Darwin 9.8.0 on my Mac. The DVD drive has been making some strange whirring noises occasionally as I ripped CDs to my hard drive.
