    Is my macbook core duo 1.83 running on the HOT side?

    istat pro:
    HD: 29º
    CPU A: 59º
    HEATSINK A: 52º

    HEATSINK B: 126º

    ENCLOSURE BOTTOM: 26º
    NORTHBRIDGE 1: 50º

    If that's in Celsius, then that's hot enough to boil water. Impressive.

    I would think that'd have to be celcius, since otherwise their hard drive would be currently operating at sub-zero (29F = -1ish C).

    Is it still showing that hot? A faulty sensor perhaps (hopefully)? You'd probably be able to tell cause something running at 126C inside your notebook would output considerable heat.

    Either way, might want to get a tech to look into why that's so high.

    Yep - Just check it was celcius

    How dependable is this iStat Pro program?

    F:eek:ahrenheit
    HD: 94º
    CPU A: 139º
    Heatsink A: 124º
    Heatsink B: 259º
    Enclosure Bottom: 81º
    Northbridge 1: 122º
    Northbridge 2: 259º

    Sent it in right after I bought it for heat problems, either never fixed it or put in another faulty Heat Sensor.

    You can also try miniStat2 (it costs $5, but there's a full-featured demo for free).

    ...But iStat is pretty accurate.

    Yes, definitely take it in as soon as possible. Are your fans running loud/fast?

    i think there are some problems with the sensors. If it really goes to 126˚, you can "COOK" on ur mac....:p:apple:

    Fans were running full guns Friday morning, but found Process named (print???) something running 99% of the cpu.
    Sinces force quiting that process, fans have been running normally

    okay i just opened my new 2.2 macbook about 2 hours ago, and transferred everything with startup from my 2.0 mbp

    so my ministat2 transferred as well

    i checked what the CPU are running at and it seems sooooo weird, well maybe its normal but compared to my mbp its strange

    Fans are running at around 1792
    CPU A is at around 25-30* C
    CPU B is at around 70-80* C

    that seems odd, like they should be around the same right?



    EDIT:

    so i downloaded istatpro and things look happier and will replace ministat.... too bad i paid for ministat so long ago when istat is better

    anyone else like that? is that normal? or do i need to bring this in already?

    Yes, on my MacBook both cores are usually within 1 degree of each other.

    Not an issue

    older versions of iStat would show 126º C for "Heatsink B." It's an error and this heatsink actually should not even be showing up. I contacted them a while ago about it and in the next update that disappeared.

    Yes that looks correct, because you are using Fahrenheit. If you told me it was Celsius I wouldn't believe you because the computer cuts the power at 110 on any part. I know because I've done it.

    No offense, guys, but this is why you might want to consider standardizing on Celsius.

    You have to pick your battles, and sometimes there is just no reason to "think different".

    Sometimes being different just for the sake of being different is little more than mental masturbation.

    I've seen the "We use Fahrenheit because we live in America" threads, but you just open yourselves up to confusion for little or no reason.

    All computer manufacturers use Centigrade. From Intel, to Nvidia, to ... well, everyone. Like it or not, that is how components are calibrated and measured at the factory, fabs, and labs. Without exception.

    If you look at the spec sheet for any processor, all of the information is listed in C.

    If you call a tech house and tell them that your processor is running at 145 degrees, they will think that you are a silly.

    I doubt they are going to start carrying around conversion calculators just to placate a few stubborn "we here in amuuuuriccca use the other scale".

    Get used to measuring temps in C, or get used to confusion when dealing with computer hardware specs from any vendor.

    Just sayin ...

    Even with F it is high. Water boils at 212, so I don't think that his computer is hotter than boiling water.

    So seriously, the MBP doesn't come w/ a utility to monitor your temperatures???

    iStat is the best?

    Is it ok just to leave the fans the way they are? Seems some people are making them go faster/slower or changing when they engage.

    Sorry, I'm just getting familiar w/ the laptop world.

    Lol... I doubt it could run that hot.. in fact I no it can't. It'd shut down, probably before you were rendered sterile.

    Are you sure it was 126 Celsius?!?

    I have a strong sense that it was 126 Fahrenheit , which comes to 52.2 Celsius.

    If it was really 126 Celsius, then there should be some obvious hardware failure- heck, even the processor is designed to power down if the temperature is above 90 degrees Celsius.


    And dang, this is a old thread!

    Did you honestly resurrect a thread that's older than my niece in order to yell at us for using Fahrenheit?

    The "newest" MBP is about 9 months old. What is outdated about it other than your particular interest in the subject?

    Did you really post to a thread that you had no interest in to yell at us for yelling at you for using Fahrenheit?

    I got here via a web search for the subject.

    If you don't like it, don't frigging read it. Unless someone is holding a gun to your head, in which case, kick them in the balls really hard and flee.

    Run Forest ... RUN!!!
