I have the 2012 2.3 GHz Intel Core i7 with 16gb and an SSD installed. Running my office apps, browser, and thinkorswim my CPU temps are 95C (in a room at 20C). At these temps the mini speeds up the fan from 1800 to 2250. Using istat fan control if I bump the fan speed further to 3500, I can bring down the temp to 80C. I've read a lot of threads on fans and temperatures, and it seems mostly people agree that this is expected when doing intensive tasks such as Handbrake. My situation is different, since I run the 95C temp for 8-10 hours/day. So the question - should I run the fan at 3500 and tolerate the noise, or is it fine to let the mini run at 95C for long periods of time?
