    iStat Pro is reporting my Airport card is at 146F (63C).

    Everything else is around 120-130F. Should I be concerned?

    The fans are at:
    CPU - 1200
    HDD - 1243
    Optical - 999

    This is while running only Adium, iTunes, and Safari.

    I don't have a iMac but I do have a macbook..... my airport card gets in that range when in heavy wireless use, 140-150F. So I don't think thats too abnormal...... assuming your actually using your wireless at this time.

    Yeah, I'm using wireless.

    So it appears that this is normal, then. Thanks!

    I just called applecare about my new macbook, and they said normal operating temperatures for my airport card are 50-70 degrees Celsius.
