Imac Pro temperature is 60'C constantly. Is that ok?
What should I do if that's needs to be lower. Computer has now been working 2.5 hours. Just web browsing. See attached istat print screens. Thank you
My 2009 iMac gets quite warm, but I run a 9'' fan at the rear of it. Keeps quite cool, now. I worked radio and TV servicing prior to retirement, and know from experience that heat is one of the main causes of component failure. I have just fired up a 2013 iMac which I bought recently, and it doesn't seem to go any higher than room temperature. I'm quite happy with that. No more draught from the fan.
At those same fan speeds my 27 inch 2019 iMac i9( 8 cores ) runs about 35C with only web browsing. If you have any concern about heat, you could always install a fan speed manager like Macs Fan Control. I don't think 60C is a concerning temperature for an iMac Pro but experimenting with a slight fan speed increase is worthwhile IMO.
How would you tell if you have a dust issue? I have looked into how to clean the dust from my 2010 iMac but everything I read is contradictory. Use a vacuum to clean the vents. Don’t use a vacuum. Use compressed air. Don’t use compressed air.
The only easy way I know is to look at the inlets and outlets to see if they indicate much dust build up. Beyond that, taking it apart or using a bendy wire to reach inside the heat sink from outside the case, to see if dust is present.
60 degrees Celsius is about 140 degrees Fahrenheit. That's pretty warm, borderline hot. Search the internet for "Macs Fan Control". Install it (its free). Adjust the fan speeds upward to cool it down. I keep mine around 105 degrees F or cooler.
Just to give you an upadate. 6 monts too late, but hope it will be helpful to someone in the future. I did have some conversations with Apple support. After multiple tests and diagnostics they did decide to organise the repair to have a look. It was under applcare warranty. So the result was: main logic board was replaced. No issues after that. And istats tempratures are mainly below 50 now. Computer is very cool. Not hot anymore.
