when will the fan turn on?! this is freaking me out
ok, it just turned on..but isnt 161 degrees a little hot? shouldnt the fan have turned on earlier?
I think the iBook can survive at that temperature (just). I think 190F is the max, not too sure though. How hot is the place you're in?
Hmm, I don't know. 72c 161F seems a little hot to me! But not impossible. I had an AMD Duron which ran at 85c and was fine. Dunno about the iBook though.
\not very hot at all, i read that the fan usually turns on at 67 celcius and mine went on at 72..i guess its not too bad
edit: also i was running folding@home to test the fan, and i know that heats up alot, and very quickly, so maybe that was the reason
My A CPU is spiking 202 F on my PM during a batch right now.
Where do I stick the thermometer to take the measurement?
Here's what my PowerBook Reads now
Processor/Controller Bottomside: 62.8 C
Processor Bottomside: 60.5 C
Power Supply Bottomside: 53.8 C
Trackpad: 41.0 C
Battery Temp: 32.0 C
I'm using Temperature Monitor for these calculations
Wow, I've never seen my PB above 144 F! That was running Seti@home before I had the cooling pad, now it doesn't get above 135F or so.
I use temperature monitor lite. Pretty good for me.
where is everybody getting these CPU temperature readings from? It's not Activity Monitor is it? Or are you all using a diagnostics tool?
With the thing I just said Here's the link http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/macosx/19994
I was writing my question when you posted your answer, I will check out temperature monitor lite and see if it is worth downloading and installing. Thanks for the link.
Why are everyones readings so high!?
Processor Bottomside: 24.5c
Power Supply Bottomside: 24c
Hard Disk: 36c
I don't know how you guys are getting these crazy readings. My ibook cpu temperature never exceeds 135 f.
Mine is running at 120 F now...
My iMac gets up to 190F
That's insane. The highest I've ever seen my PB at was 89.5 F.
Depends on what you are doing. I've been running distributed.net (so CPU load tends to stay at 100%) and my readings on my iBook are:
Processor Bottomside: 68.5C/155.3F
Power Supply/Memory Bottomside: 52.8C/127.04F
Maybe I don't have any apps that cause that kind of CPU usage. My worst is when I am burning a CD, listening to music in iTunes, working with widgets in Dashboard, and chatting in iChat, and maybe a few other apps running in the background that I'm not really using like Word, RapidWeaver, and Image Tricks.
geez, what are u people doing on your machines....
run for your lives it going to blow!
oh wait... nm
Hmmm... so I noticed that since I upgraded to 10.4.2, I get a lot more fan activity. And I just turned back on the temp monitor widget, and my fan was running at about 58C, a temperature at which it sounds like it would not run for many of you. Hmmm.... Well, I guess since it came and went for others with dot upgrades, I too will hope that 10.4.3 makes it go away.
I've never once heard a fan running in my PB, and I work in a dead silent office (unless I'm blasting iTunes).
