    Help,
    I just got my mbp serviced and had my logic board replaced.
    Came back and I started to do some video encoding and noticed the temps.
    Is this way too hot? My fan is running at 6k during this temp.

    101 CELSIUS?

    I don't think your Mac would even be running with that temp. Isn't that like 300 degrees F?

    Quite normal temp for Fahrenheit. Quite ABnormal for Celsius!
    101 degrees Celsius = 213.8 degrees Fahrenheit

    He said celcius.. 101C = 213 F!!

    Something must be wrong, either thermalpaste or fans blocked..

    Isn't 101 C something like 210 F? Yikes, I freak out when my MBP hits into the 170F. Take that in to Apple before you fry everything in your case!

    EDIT: Everyone else beat me to saying it. I guess this requires clarification from the OP.

    Uhh look at the pictures. They say it loud and clear. Maybe someone changed your settings to show temps in F. Come on... use a little logic please? 100C is unlikely and C2Ds are rated to 90C only. 100C = melting point and your table would have a burn mark most likely

    I intentionally posted my temps in both Fahrenheit and Celsius, to show the OP what normal temps would be.

    A little logic would conclude that 101F whilst encoding in FCP on a MBP is pretty much a pipe dream, surely.

    My MacBook Pro reaches close to 100'C recently too - never used to go over 76'C. I'm starting to worry about my MacBook Pro.

    Hi all,
    Yes, it is 101 degrees celsius, i kid you not. (my country uses celsius)
    I'm taking it back for servicing.

    Intel processors are actually quiet robust, they have a operation temperature right up to 125°C!! Though the north-bridge will fail well before then, along with the memory... Pity really.

    Okay the thermal shutdown temperature is 100ºC

    That doesn't mean that the settings are in C.

    His smcFanControl clearly says 101 C. I've never seen mine go above 60 since I've installed the program...maybe I keep too much of an eye on it or something. :rolleyes:

    Looking at his iStat Pro readings, if it's not Celsius, he must be running his MBP on a block of ice, to keep his enclosure down to 38 degrees, Fahrenheit! :D

    I'm using Handbrake to encode a home DVD and I'm at 75C right now with my CPU. 4000RPM on both fans and it's been going like this for an hour or so. Seems like quite the task though. I think I would want to do this often, but don't want to stress my MBP.

    True, my mistake. I really need to be careful what I do when very tired and have a migrane :eek:

    I would definitely get it checked out before pushing it to those numbers again.

    My 2.4/160GB/4GB Ram... 82C max..

    I have never seen mine (Aug-07 _ 2.4GHz/160GB/4GB Ram) with past 82ºC so far.. but WOW that is really HOT!! Certainly BEYOND laptop friendly.. that would blister you FAST!! Please keep us informed on this... CURIOUS :confused:

    This makes me pretty weary of buying a MBP and would be doing a lot of this type of stuff on it and really cannot afford my hardware to be doing this kind of stuff.

    what?

    You people are ridiculous. 100C (212F) is WATER'S boiling point, it's not a melting point for plastic and metal. While that temp is too hot, it most likely won't MELT anything.

    Silicon doesn't melt until 1420 C, even solder doesn't melt until 183 C. Still, 101 C is a dangerous temperature for your computer, and you should avoid ever letting it get that high.
