    I just got my Penryn 45nm MacBook last week and wanted to share some of my observed idle temps.

    CPU- 39 degrees

    Northbridge- 39 degrees

    I am very pleased with these temps. How do they compare with the other 45nm and 65nm MBs? I am going to do some stress testing tonight to check for peak CPU and NB temps

    They're normal. There's a very wide range of what idle can be, generally due to the ambient temperature of the room.

    Congrats, yours isn't defective..

    Hehe, thanks :D

    I am mainly curious to how these temperatures compare to their 65nm Merom chips counterparts.

    Pretty much the same; Merom just consumed more power among other things.

    Generally, more power consumption= more heat output, no?

    I'd be interested to hear how you MB performs for real world tasks, I'm thinking on picking one up in the next few days.
