Those of you with 4,1

Can you post your temp numbers at idle and load?

I only have few days to return the unit.
Yesterday I found only the top optical drive is being recognized.
I don't have the 2.5mm hex to try to open the optical cover.

Are you sure there is supposed to be 2 drives in the optical drive bay? There are 2 doors, but there may be only 1 Superdrive in there. Did the seller say there were two?

When you refer to the optical cover, do you mean the access door to the optical drive bay? IF so, then you don't need a tool to open it. IT has a handle and you just pull it out.

At my old job I had a 5,1 and it had two optical drives.

I did not peak through the access door. What I meant however was to remove the hex screws that hold the side cover to the optical drives. I think they are the same size as ones that hold the CPU tray in place.

No Mac Pro comes with two optical drives standard. That has always been an optional add-on.

You don't need ANY tools to pull the drive carrier out.
Just lift the latch on the back panel of the MP up, and then reach inside and slide the drive carrier out. You'll see immediately if there's any device in the lower optical bay.

I can't think of any kind of hex screw related to the optical drives. They are mounted with small Phillips screws, I think.

The 5,1 at your job may have had 2 drives, but most Mac Pros shipped with only one bay occupied. That was the standard configuration. Unless someone had a second drive added as a BTO uprgrade originally or added one themselves later on, then you will likely have only one drive in there. Just pull the door out and have a look.

EDIT: DeltaMac types faster than I. Sorry for the repeat information.

Are these numbers good?
CPU A TDIODE 99F 37C
CPU A HeatSink 93F 34C
CPU A Relative to ProcHot 131F 55C
CPU B TDIODE 83F 28C
CPU B HeatSink 81F 27C
CPU B Relative to ProcHot 146F 63C

IOH HeatSink 125F 51C
IOH TDIODE 187 86C

I don't know what the relative to prochot mean?
In my screenshot those numbers are much higher than the other guys

These numbers are idle for about 20h


After running Geekbench Burn in for 10 hours

CPU A TDIODE 173F 78C
CPU A HeatSink 140F 60C
CPU B TDIODE 151F 66C
CPU B HeatSink 118F 48C

While for weather, I can only operate in °F, when it comes to anything science, math, or computers-related, it's got to be in °C for me to have any understanding what those numbers mean.
