    What Temperature is your macbook pro running at?

    Also post fan speed, model etc thanks.

    Mines at around 50ºc @4000rpm running photoshop and dreamweaver CS3

    There are many threads on this already, try a search for MBP temperatures, and you'll find the big thread(s) on it.

    That being said, I'm usually at 47 degrees C with fans at 2000 rpm idle. With intensive stuff, sometimes will get up to 55-57 C, with fans still at 2000 rpm, so your temps are just fine.

    MBP 2.4SR

    I am getting this. These are the lowest I can get :(

    And it is IDLE, not running anything, except safari.

    in the desert somewhere
    I'm no expert, but when charging the notebook it becomes painful to touch....
    too much thermal paste maybe (based on some forum reading) ???

    Omg, those are great temps, why do u have such?

    Mine is 48 degrees doing nothing if I recall correctly, running at 2000 rpm.
    Now with opera and adium and sjphone running and some program to raise fan speed after cpu temp I have 53-54 degrees at 2200-2700 rpm.

    I block quite a lot of flash ads thought I guess :D

    2.2GHz MBP.

    Oh, and I "always" run on cable. If running on battery or whatever changes anything.

    Same temps and speeds as I have all the time when idle on MBP C2D. Looks fine to me. With CPU intensive tasks like video processing temps and fan speeds go up, of course.

    would seem to me that systems with slower RPM hard drives tend to work harder...causing more heat.

    if they were 7200 rpm they would be cooler in the high 30's celcius.

    just my observation.

    I had a 17" 2.33ghz 3gb ram, 7200rpm 100gb drive bought last November.

    idle would be in the 30's under heavy use it would go in the low 40's and the highest I've seen it is 52c

    Since having the Logic Board replaced (and wrong screen installed - but that's another story) on my SR MBP 17" last week, the fans now run constantly if the machine is plugged in and over 30C (hard to be under 30C in Australia!) - they are always at 6000rpm or thereabouts, never stopping but only if plugged in.

    This is clearly wrong? it's like working in front of a hairdryer. Is this a known problem? Have they stuffed up my Logic Board replacement as well as Display?

    Help? Thanks.

    1. What program is that?
    2. Standard for reading CPU stuff is celsius, don't get too excited. I still use fahrenheit in my daily life.

    Up the irons
    Electrical and environmental requirements

    * Meets ENERGY STAR requirements
    * Line voltage: 100V to 240V AC
    * Frequency: 50Hz to 60Hz
    * DC input: 18.5 Vdc, 4.6A maximum.
    * Power cable Operating temperature: 50° to 95° F (10° to 35° C)
    * Storage temperature: -13° to 113° F (-24° to 45° C)

    * Relative humidity: 0% to 90% noncondensing
    * Maximum operating altitude: 10,000 feet
    * Maximum storage altitude: 15,000 feet
    * Maximum shipping altitude: 35,000 feet

    Sort of a related question: I seldom turn on the heat during the winter months here in Texas. In fact, I leave the windows open as I love it when the temperature drops into the forties. It helps me sleep. My question is could it be harmful if I use my notebook when it is 40 degrees F. in my room? How about 30?

    Seems logical that a cool room will help reduce CPU temperature.

    What widget are you using if it is?

    sorry lost track of this thread

    1. its fancontrol. its a great app as it increases or decreases the fan speec based on temps and remembers your settings after a reboot.
    2. fair enough :) if i went to the US i would still have my weather widget in celsius haha

    Wow I have to say thanks for this thread you guys make me feel a lot better about buying a MBP in the near future- I have seen numerous articles stating the temps to reach easily 90 or 100 (C) which was nearly unacceptable for me.
