    today I received my new MacBook (the normal one, not Air and not Pro) with 2.2 GHz and 120 GByte harddisk.

    I'm wondering if the temperatures of the MacBook are okay. I used iStat Pro to read the temps from the hardware.

    CPU A: 40 °C
    Heatsink A: 40 °C
    Heatsink B: 41 °C
    Enclosure Bott...: 25 °C
    Northbridge 1: 40 °C
    Airport Card: 42 °C
    Mem Bank A1: 39 °C
    HD: 28 °C

    The fan rotates at about 1.800 rpm. At full CPU load the fan goes up to 6.000 rpm and is very loud.

    yeah they seem fine, just check mine ( macbook 2.0GHz ) and its at: CPU A 49c. and i am only running safari. in fact mine is much warmer than yours. its all good tho.

    and yes when you start running heave programs the fan rlly does go crazy, but its ment to do that, what if it was really hot and no noisy fans? you would get a cooked macbook

    Yup, those temperatures are perfectly fine.

    I get a range between 40c to 50c doing light stuff like browsing, e-mail, iTunes, movies, and word processing. The temperature rises up to about 70c-75c when playing 3D games, with the fans running at full tilt.

    ye, well heres a comparison as i have the exact same mac. I have been running mine for probably a few hours with minimal programs running.
    CPU A: 50
    Heatsink A: 48 °C
    Heatsink B: 41=7 °C
    Enclosure Bott...: 29 °C
    Northbridge 1: 46 °C
    Airport Card: 53 °C
    Mem Bank A1: 46 °C
    HD: 32 °C

    with 1799r per minute.

    so i guess thats the range because i doubt mine will get any hotter.
