Interesting ....

Once I get mine and it's up, loaded with all my files and such, it'll be running 24/7/365. I run Folding@Home, a distributed project managed from Stanford University. Folding will seriously put the CPU to task. It's a medical research project. Go to Folding@Home web site to get more information. :cool:

Yes, I want a :cool: :apple: for this project! :p

Thank Goodness...

I'm not the only one...



I'm using Popcorn to shrink a DVD but this thing was running hot a long time ago.

I might just have to take my 17" Core Duo back from my mom. I think mine might be in meltdown mode.

While I couldn't find exact tech spec's for this exact chipset on Intel's website, Intel has posted max temps for comparable chips at 100C (212F). While that only really serves as a guide at best, it's still a starting point.

I can find the stats for the chipset, but what about the Hard Drive ??? My is 60C or higher and that can't be good

well it's been 2 years and it's still running good. i still never hear the fans kick on when doing intensive things, while on the other hand my macbook pro kicks on when it should.
