    This is for MBP owners. I am looking into the thermal paste problems, which date back from the first Rev. A MBP. Please post your temperatures.

    Also, if anybody has a recent MBP (SR) and has opened your MBP to re-apply thermal paste, could you please share your results and pictures if you have any.

    My MBP is a week old and I haven't pulled it to bits and re-pasted it. The processor is 2.6GHz and I'm currently running off the Power Adapter with the Power Settings set to Better Performance.

    Here are the temps.

    As an aside, isn't Skitch the Mutt's Nuts!

    I frequently run in the high 50's to mid 60's Celsius during "normal" use. It goes as high as 80 when something big kicks in.

    Core Duo, 2.16, May 2006

    Have replaced the hdd and both fans.

    I am using iStat menus as well as the widget. iStat pro (application right?) doesnt work with C2D Macs.

    Google earth is the only thing that really heats mine up: Within a half hour of opening Earth my fan kicks on and the temps blows past 170-180 degrees...

    Pretty sure it's iStat 2.0 that isn't compatible with Core 2 Duo Macs, iStat Pro and iStat nano (widgets) work fine.

    Here is a CLEAN logic board - From left to right: GPU, North Bridge, CPU:

    Proper paste applied - I have some special diamond dust thermal paste that is VERY durable so I used it - I have seen others apply the paste to the chips AND to the heat sinks, THIS IS BAD, VERY BAD!!! ONLY APPLY TO CHIPS.

    And finally the cleaned heat pipe cooler:

    I know its not a MBP but my MB is 30-35 deg C normal use (web surfing, pages, itunes), 70 deg C max w/ both cores at 100%.

    and for you non celsius users.. its 86-95 deg F normal use, 158 deg F max w/ 100% both cores.

    I live in the SF bay area. Its like.. warm, not too cold. But its colder now. Approx. 40-80 deg F average over the year. My room, or at least the room I use my system, is almost always around 60+ deg F.

    again, for you converters... 60 deg F is approx 15-16 deg C, 40-80 deg F is approx 4-26 deg C.

    This is just doing basic web browsing and using NeoOffice to edit some powerpoint files. With using Lightroom and Photoshop I have gotten to over 180F before.

    Burning a DVD with Toast & using Safari.


    Edit: I just noticed my GPU temp is higher compared to the other posted above. Could running an external monitor (24" 1920x1200) be the cause of that difference?

    Here are the current temps on a Macbook Pro SR 2.4 Ghz 2 gigs of ram. This is with nothing changed with the paste. I got the laptop in August. Just some minor surfing. This would probably equate more towards a idle temperature.

    Not bad right now

    114 right now, but no programs really running right now other then Limewire, Safari, and Mail. If I use Handbrake and try to rip a movie of mine, my MBP will shut down because it gets too hot. Have seen it get all the way up to 180 and over - very hot and very bad.

    Also have a laptop cooler with 3 fans hooked to it with bigger rubber pads holding the MBP about a 1/2 inch above the cooler.

    Here's mine. Running on AC Power, with Mail, NetNewsWire, Firefox, Itunes, and Word 2008 Running. So a lot of things running, but smc fan control is steading at 120F. Doing handbrake or games, I've hit 180 easy.
