    My dual 1.25 GHz G4 has been acting up lately and I'm thinking it might be temperature related.

    The CPU is around 134-135 after its been on a while
    The Harddrives are 97 and 100

    These temps are °F

    I was wondering if anyone else with this type of machine could tell me what their temps are.

    Thanks,

    D

    I don't have one personally but does this thread help? :)

    Sorry I can't be more helpful. How has the machine been playing up exactly?

    Actually, that was a good find and now I'm trying chud tools - thanks,

    Good luck with it. Hopefully the problems are actually temperature-related so CHUD can fix it. :)

    Hey, I don't really know what this app is but Daystar sent me a disc for my upgraded CPU'ed Tibooks from them that regulates CPU and I think heat usage on OS9 and OSX. Comes on disc. Got two. I'd share with Mad Jew or a moderator if you could explain to me what exactly this thing does.

    California, is it called MAChSpeed Control? If that's it, it's a pretty advanced app that lets you customise (configure, test & monitor) all sorts of things to do with your CPU. I think it's really for the over clocker. At an RRP of $20, you might be able to sell it to someone with a G4 tower in the Marketplace if you want to. :)

    Oh yeah, that's what it is. I didn't have any idea what it was. Cool. Just wish I was smart enough to use it.

    Well Mad Jew, I dove in and installed one of the discs on my iBook because I don't have the Tibook right now that Daystar upgraded. OH MY GOD. This app actually SPEEDS UP my iBook 1.33mhz with 1.25gb ram. I mean, I can see and feel the difference. Yikes.

    You can't be serious. :eek:

    Good stuff, I didn't actually have any faith in it. I thought it'd be like those pop ups I used to get in Windows telling me about apps that can "increase your internet connection".

    I hope it doesn't do anything to the longevity of the machine though. Does it feel like it's running hotter? :)

    Oh, and thanks for the feedback. This is interesting stuff. :)

    No, the pdf file description says that it smoothes out some of the ways the g3 and g4 machines work. Don't ask me how. But it is noticable. And no, not hotter. My fan has never come on in this iBook purchased in August and it's been running the app for a half hour now - nada.
