    Just curious as to what other people are seeing for temps in their 2010 Mac Pros.

    Coming from a 2006, this machine is 10x cooler. I'm not running any SMC fan control anymore....everything is stock.

    Are most other people's Northbridge hotter than anything else?

    My Temps are:

    CPU: 88 F (31 C)
    Ambeint: 81 F (27 C)
    Mem Bank A2: 88 F (31 C)
    Mem Bank A3: 86 F (30 C)
    Mem Bank A4: 94 F (34 C)
    Mem Bank A5: 94 F (34 C)
    Northbridge: 121 F (49 C)
    PS1: 90 F (32 C)
    PS2: 95 F (35 C)

    Thanks!

    Adjusted the pics.

    What's your Northbridge temp?

    You sure those are in Celsius?

    Thanks!

    I hope those are in Fahrenheit, not Celsius. Do you live on Mercury or something?

    In my 2009 Nehalem Mac Pro, the Northbridge does tend to run a bit toasty. 74C right now more or less at idle.

    My 2009 quad is the same. While rendering the cpu goes up to 60+ C. Using SMC fan control keeps it bellow 50 C.

    Thanks for the replies.

    Looks like my temps are normal.

    It sure helps not having those honking big FB-DIMMS in there like the 2006-2008 models!
