It works on my iBook.... But I have no baseline, so I don't know if the numbers are reliable / right! :eek:

Right now, mine are (C):

36.0 - Battery
56.3 - CPU
57.2 - GPU
53.0 - Memory

And it's operating and warm, but fans off. Is that reasonable?

Do other temp monitors work on your MDD, Gary?

Yeah, it works on my iBook, not on my PM, sadly.

Reason number 1,298,343 for that new G5 in the fall.

Dear god! 142 degrees on my CPU (F). It's all these widgets! I should get a small fan to place inside the iCurve under the laptop and keep it nice and cool. Don't want her blowing out before the intel macs arrive.

:eek: i dont know about ibooks normalness but my centrino 2.0ghz (undervolted to ~1.2v) only got to about 54 under heavy, heavy, load, and the gpu was never that hot (x300 mobility) of course i had to return that for excessive :)eek: ) fan noise so i guess that's how it kept that cool...:rolleyes:just sounds really hot for a portable...

oh and about iGary's PM not working, it's because the mobile g4 (the same except for speed-stepping junk and a temp sensor) in the mini and portables has a temp sensor but the normal g4 (like in iGary's MDD) doesn't

My iBook got up to 155 degrees F folding last night, which means diddly to me.

I don't know if that is hot, cool....
