    So according to istat menus my drive bay should be glowing white hot at the moment :L

    Any ideas why/ how to fix this?

    Dual 2.3, 4 GB ram and 6800 Ultra.

    All you can do is go into istat preferences and deselect "Drive Bay"
    On my system iStat reads the "Back Side" as 1100 deg.
    I suspect these are sensor problems, either faulty or just that istat cannot read them.
    Temperature Monitor correctly reads my "Back Side" at 48.8 deg C.

    When the software can't read a sensor it just outputs -127. That's what it outputs for my GPU Diode when I'm using integrated graphics on my MBP.

    And as mentioned in my post above, iStat can't read my Backside sensor, so it reports 1100 deg, while Temperature Monitor which can read it, reports it correctly at 47.5 deg.

    Hey you could almost smelt gold and turn that box into a boiler to make your own power.

    Well when my mother first saw my G5 many years ago she wasn't sure if she should be more concerned about the Heat produced during the summer or the power consumption :p
