    A very short video testing the Temperature and Fan speed on my new iMac Late 2012

    Playing World of Warcraft on Ultra Settings

    You will have to pause the video when the settings come up as I was playing WOW and quick switched to see it before switching back.

    27 inch iMac
    Intel Quad Core i7 - 3.4 Ghz
    1TB Fusion Drive
    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680MX 2GB
    8GB DDR3 Memory

    These were the highest it got to in my run.

    All the temperatures are in degrees Celsius
    CPU - 79 degrees
    GPU - 75 degrees
    LCD - 33 degrees
    MLB - 55 degrees
    PCH - 57 degrees
    HDD - 36 degrees
    Fusion (SSD) - 46 degrees

    Fan Speed - 2419 rpm

    Room (ambient) temperature at the time of recording - 26 degrees

    Cheers

    Thanks!
    It would be interesting to see a similar done with the i5 3.2ghz CPU, however the room temperature should also be reported, as it influence the internal temperatures of the iMac. The CPU temp is high, but the i7 is generally hotter because of hyperthreading. I wonder how much cooler the i5 3.2ghz CPU runs during gaming...

    Oops, forgot to mention that. I had written down the room temperature at the time of recording at 26 degrees and humidity was at 60%. (Just edited the post with this info)

    Thanks
