    Hey,

    I'm wondering if the 27" i5 3.1GHz is significantly cooler than the i7 3.4GHz?

    More than a few degrees. i.e: 10c, 20c, etc.

    For other iMacs yes, but I'm not so sure about the 2011 models.

    Only the i5-2500S has 65W TDP (the 2.7GHz), the i5-2400 (3.1GHz) and i7-2600 (3.4GHz) are rated for 95W TDP. But also the video card in the 3.1-3.ghz 27" has more heat
