...for my computer CPU temperature to scorch up to 120?-130?F while encoding a movie for an ipod?
That's a low temperature...
That's the average temperature on my G5 for just being idle most of the time.
There seems to be a lot of worrying going on about temperatures on these forums. Is it well known that Macs fry themselves or something?!
Generally speaking you'll know when your computer gets too hot, it'll stop working
Everyone just needs to stop downloading temperature widgets. If your computer ever shuts down from heat, then maybe you need to deal with it. Otherwise, just calm down. Way down.
oh... my G4 idles at 70-80 so i was a bit concered... thank you guys!
g4 idles at 70-80? What kind of g4 are we talking about here, what computer?
yeah but temperature widgets are all the thing now-a-days... i have like 5.
G4 powerbook 12'' 1.33 Ghz... (maybe it's 80-90. it's one of the two.)
70-90 celsius? That's really pretty hot for idling... I hope you're going by farenheit.
My iBook processor is 115 F right now, and the case is barely warm to the touch. All I'm doing is listening to iTunes while surfing the web and downloading some files.
Yeah, 120-130 is perfectly safe.
My powerbook is hovering right around 320 right now
farenheight. 70-80-90 celcius would be hot enough to fry an egg.
Not quite, but close. Didn't know if you were too cheap to afford a stove.
how does it feel in your lap?
More importantly, how did you get it to hover?
I regularly cook on my MBP. The aluminum case is nonstick.
is it teflon® coated?
No, RDF® coated.
Apple's new slogan: Things just taste better on a Mac
And its true.
yep... just checked my thing... this computer idles at 81?F.
Where do you go to check your computer temps?
You don't. You don't need tyo know them. If you have a heat problem you need to talk to Apple, if you don't then you need not think about heat at all.
