Temperature question

I have an Early 2009 Mac Pro (2.66 Quad), and lately I've been noticing something strange. Once in a while, My mouse will stutter, or lag I guess. As if my computer is struggling or something. This would happen when I am doing nothing that requires heavy rescources. I have 6gb of ram. I primarily use my MacPro for audio programs like Pro Tools and Ableton, this will occur even when I am not running programs like that. As I type this, my CPU's temp is 101 degree's, I have Safari 4, iChat and Microsoft Entourage open. Is this normal?

Also - I have the Audio Update 1.0 and I am running 10.6.2.

Thanks,

Chris

Your CPU is nearly dying!

What are your fan speeds?
You might have the same problem as I do. My CPUs go over 90° (core temp) without any movement of the fan speeds. They remain at their minimum.

Try a SMC reset (plug out the power cord, hold the power button for 5 seconds and switch the computer on). If that doesn't change anything, I can't help you.
It does not work with my computer, which is why I'm going to consult AppleCare soon.

I just tried unplugging my power cable, holding power for 5 seconds, then plugging back and powering up. I have Safari 4 and Microsoft Entourage on , temp reading is between 106-110 ferinheight.

My fan speeds are between 600-800rpm.

No, not dying at all. 101°F is fine.

First question, is the 101 figure Farenheit or Celsius?

101 fahrenheit is about 38 celsius, your machine is running pretty well i'd say
