just read the previous postsSo is there a general consensus on:
- when you should worry about your Northbridge Temp in the Mac Pro?
- what the MAX temps the Northbridge in the Mac Pro can handle?Northbridge will run hotter than the Processors due to the Passive Heatsink.
Unless your getting 90 Degrees Celsius Plus, Don't Worry.
My Northbridge under normal load seems to be around 73c / 164F.Most NB's are rated to run up to 130C before poblems
My Mac Pro fans are at the lowest default setting. The Mac Pro NEVER kicks up the fans itself. If I use smcFanControl, I can kick the fans up and that number drops.
How many people here use smcFanControl all the time and set higher defaults? What settings for RPM do you use?
Sorry should have been more clear. Is there any documented data on these questions?just read the previous posts
