    Are these iStat readings normal for a 15" SR MBP, 2.4Ghz, 7200rpm HD?

    CPU 113F
    GPU Diode 122F
    GPU Heatsink 112F
    Heatsink A 110F
    Heatsink B 104F
    Enclosure Bottom 90F
    Memory Controller 95F

    Er, is that Fahrenheit or Celsius? Idle or under load? Fan speeds at the time?

    rather than start a new thread, i'll pose the same question here:

    are my temps safe/okay?

    on average using camino, itunes, quicksilver, and sometimes transmission i have been getting somewhere between 50C to 60C on cpuA (same with my gpu... these 2 seem to be the hottest running parts). Though, the temperature where i live has been getting hotter, so that might attribute to some degree (prior to that i was getting 40-50).

    Under a heavier load I'm hitting 70C. at around a little above 70C my fans kick in big time until i am between 60 and 70, at that point they run back down to 2000 rpm.

    are these numbers normal or should i be worried/contact applecare?

    i would rather not mess with smcfancontrol, being that every time i try to mess with something systemeey on computers it seems to be precursor for massive **** up.

    Sorry about that. Those were all Fahrenheit. No load to speak of. Silly question, I guess, but I was just curious.

    those are all fine. 70°C underload and your doing really well... i hit 90°C sometimes.. enjoy your SR MBP!!!!! (i am now outdated by alot)

    I echo. I've yet to see 90, but mine has gotten super hot (especially the GPU) when I'm driving my Dell 24" monitor in dual-screen mode.

    I have the same machine, minus the 7,200rpm HD.

    Yours seems nice and cool. Mine's usually something like:

    CPU ~70C ish (158F)
    GPU Diode ~ 72 to 82C (161 to 180F)
    Enclosure bottom ~ 40 to 44C (104 to 111F)

    I don't normally pay attention to the other stats.

    Right now, on battery, I'm sitting at 46'C (114'F).

    Plugged in, under heavy load, it peaks around 70'C (158'F).

    The bottom of the case gets extremely hot under load.

    MBP Temps/How to load CPU?

    Ok, a dumb there a program or a systematic way to load the CPU's, so I can capture the CPU temps in other than idle? Just running a bunch of programs simultaneously doesn't seem very scientific. I've seen references to some <yes null> something or another - yes, I'm sure I'm mangling the command - anyone know exactly what to do?

    Mine is at 82C 90% load (Burning two video files on Toast) with fans at 3500 RPM. Can't hear anything from the fans!
