    I downloaded this just out of curiousity. My new Macbook stays around 47C. I am getting an erro when I open the Core Temp program. It still opens fine, but an error opens along with it that states something to the effect of, "Cannot open 'ys' -1700".

    Anyone know what that means?

    Core Duo Temp isn't compatible with 10.5. Maybe that's the problem...

    Good call...

    Didn't know that. So the temp reading is not accurate? What comparable program can I use?

    iStat Menus

    I downloaded the program and removed Core Temp. Pretty neat. Probably not as fascinating to some, but I just wasn't aware one could monitor things like fan speed and temperature of the housing. Thanks for the tips.

    Just so I know, what are the normal fan speeds and various temps for my Macbook? Is there a certain range that they should stay within?

    No problem :) I found that iStat menus is useful utility for me.

    Look at the Intel Mac Temperature Database. Temps in my MBP are: mid 50s C when idle and below 70s C under heavy load. Fans at 2000 RPM (idle), max is 6000 RPM (under heavy load). I have no idea how it looks in MB.
