    Its from germany
    CPU both on my 1.25 Ghz MDD running between 58 and 59 degree Celsius.
    Fitted a PCI fan but result of Cooling seems only at PCI area.
    Got me now another small Cooler from Ebay,powered by Hard drive cable.Removed lower Hard drive Bay and,well,have 7 Webpages with around 15 tabs and CPU hard working by 56.8 Degree Celsius.
    The small fan only blows Air into the big fan.(changed them from Noisy China Fan to a Silent German fan but Temp didnt change)
    Will get Monday two hard Drive fan,and thats then for that Machine.Will not do more on it.
    I dont think its making them better,but he may get older,i hope.

    What you say to that?

    That temperature is just normal for a 1.25GHz MDD. There is now way you can low it down much further unless you have a refrigerator as your room.

    If you are running Leopard, look for CHUD. Reasearch and read articles on that. It could help you lower down your temperature at idle.

    Don't worry about the temperatures, your Mac can handle that by itself.

    CHUD will make a more significant difference than any hardware modification.

    If it has never been done, though, I would remove the factory installed thermal tape, clean the CPUs, and apply some fresh thermal compound.

    @thundersnake, how could I forget the thermal paste? To the OP it is a good idea to apply a fresh coat of thermal paste.
