    Hey guys,

    I am a bit worried about the temperature of my processor. It is an Intel T9400 2,53Ghz in the Unibody MBP.

    When I am not doing intensive stuff, but just browsing around and playing iTunes music through AirTunes, the temps are around 47C-53C (Celsius).

    Is this ok? I heard that someone had the temps around 25-30C (Celsius), but cannot believe it is true.

    Should I be worried???

    It's a computer. This is perfectly fine. Get SMCFanControl and dial your fans up if you're worried.

    you're fine...


    Let me tell you something... i have a desktop (windows i know - for crysis) but i built it in about $400... it has an Intel Pentium 4 -- Overclocked from 2.6 to 4.8 Ghz... the core temps go to about 80-95 degrees celcius :eek: and it pushes crysis at medium settings =) single core! :D so my point being, safe operating temp for a CPU is anywhere between 27 degrees Celcius and 105 Degrees celcius.

    You're fine, dont be worried. enjoy your MBP ;)

    There seems to be a new "Is my temps normal?" thread every day, maybe there should be a sticky thread or something...

    Wow 51C, thats cold, mine runs at 90C + most of the time. Why did you get a MBP if your only pushing it to 51C?

    Okay guys.
    Thanks for your replies.
    If I scan my harddrive using ClamXav antivirus, the temperature of the processor goes up to 78-80C (Celsius). I hope it is normal too, because I normally never reach these temps.... :(

    Thats still fairly cold. Why are you using Clam AV?? Theres no viruses for Mac, NONE, NOTHING, NOT 1 but 0. Such a complete waste of your processing power, therefore wasting you time.

    I've heard about a new trojan which has been made for Mac OSX... so I am pretty scared to get it one day and lose all my important data... :) But it is nice to know that my temps are within the range of normal ones...

    Mines at 41C but I have SMC on at 6200RPM, is this healthy for a UMB?

    You can only get that trojan if you illegaly download a certain piece of softwafe from a certain website, and theres other, more likely ways for you to loose all your data, which is why you should backup using time machine every day.
