Hello everyone, I bought an imac 27" i7 quad with 8gb so i can open a lot of programs at the same time with enough speed. My Imac starts without any fan sound.....no problemo After an hour or so it begins... the fan begins making a louder sound ( i understand cause it gets hot and needs cooling) but...when i lay my hand on the left top ont the back of the monitor it is really hot... also no problem but i think it's strange that it get's so hot without even playing a game or any other heavy program running. When i look at the temp. it's aboyt 53/55 degrees , when i look in a program called "Tweak 7" on my bootcamp partition it says: warning 55 degrees! Ok, so i thought what will happen if i play a heavy game? So i installed Crysis... After 30 minutes the fan began blowing ( and kept on blowing ) so hard it became a little scary. I stopped the game and the fan kept on blowing like this for another 10 minutes! Maybe someone can answer my 3 questions: 1. Is it normal that in normal conditions the the computer is about 53/55 degrees ? 2. Can anybody else hear the fan getting louder after an hour working on your computer without running any heavy programs ? 3. I thought it was possible to play games on an Imac, but i tried and the fan went nuts after about 30 minutes, does this mean i can't play any games without listening to a loud fan blowing because of the heating of the IMAC ?
