What is too hot for a CPU on a MB?
80 degrees C is borderline.
80˚ seems to be pretty well past the initial point of concern. I'd be worried about temperatures as low as 65˚C (150˚F), especially with a laptop.
I disagree on that; CPU temps over 65 are quite common if you're running the machine hard. Certainly, I've seen temperatures over 70 when maxing out both cores.
If it's idling at over 65 with nothing running and/or the fan isn't ramping up, that might be something to get a little concerned about, but I'm going to agree that it's not something to worry about until it's getting close to 80.
mine runs at 45-50c ide if i push it in photoshop and which is very easy i can hit 83-93c! nuthing really to worry about aslong as dont stay there all the time
anything below 70c is fineovb lower the better
forgive me, but how can you tell what temperature your computer is running at?
istatspro off apple downloads is very good
Anything where the fan is properly audible is a worry for me.
thanks smogsy-- i just got it and am happy to see my temp is pretty low!
trouble is with listening to fans is there so small in laptops they have to spin faster to keep good temp because of there size,
where as if you had 120mm fan it spin half as fast
but true that ive seen my fan at 7338pm lol
