    What Are Normal Mac Pro 1,1 Temps and RPMs?

    1,1: 2x 2.66 Quads (X5355's) - 16BG (8x2GB) Kingston RAM (NON-APPLE APPROVED HEATSINKS)

    Also wondering why CPU B is ALWAYS hotter than A by about 10*
    Also wondering why Memory only shows 3 banks each, shouldn't it be 4?

    Your temps are perfectly fine.

    CPU B hotter than CPU A: The heat sinks are above each other, so part of the heat from the lower one rises to the upper one and can't dissipate as efficiently.

    No idea why there's only 6 temps displayed for 8 RAM slots, but as long as it works I wouldn't bother. Maybe try another temperature monitoring app.
