    I have a 2006 blackbook. Recently i feel like it is reaching uncomfortably high temperatures, which says a lot since it always gets hot. i'm using snow leopard but i don't feel like it is due to sl. Here are the temps that istat gives me (in farenheit)

    HD- 39
    CPU- 82
    enclosure base - 37
    heatsink a- 70
    heatsink b- 68
    mem bank a1- 56
    northbridge 1- 64
    northbridge 2- 66

    anything out of the ordinary?

    those are some high temps, what are you doing when u are seeing these temps?

    what does activity monitor say, i'll see those temps if i'm doing something gpu intensive or cpu intensive

    Those temps are in Farenheit? There's no way...82F is running pretty darned cold. Most MacBooks will idle around 45-50C which is 113-122F.
