MacBook only please.... I dont know how to take a screenshot with my MacBook haha
Screenshot is Command-Shift-3
I run around 50 plus or minus when doing office-type tasks, up around 68-70 if playing a game.
45-55C during routine Office stuff. Can get up to 70s when taxing the machine. This machine has a great cooling system so when the fan spools up it cools off fast.
51 right now just browsing the internet.
I just took it out of sleep, and I'm at 31C
Last night when running Handbrake, using 91% of the CPU, it never went over 80C, as the fans kicked upto ~4000rpm around that point.
Oh ok. I thought 70C was abnormal. I think it was 70C LOL. It seems that it is hotter when it is charging. When using the battery it seems like the fan is not going and its not as hot. Maybe the CPU is throttled down when using the battery?
Right now I'm at 122F = 50C
im with everyone else. Usually about 45-50*C doing normal stuff, although i have seen it as low as 35ish.
My high is about 80, that is, of course, maxing it out though.
this is now:
~actually 48 now (changed in the amount of time it took me to write this... haha)
Thanks, how do you have it displayed on the toolbar thingy? I have to use the iStat widget for mine... I want to be able to see it in there without having to switch to widget view.
whitebook [early 09] 45c ...been on constantly for 6 hours.slight rise when rendering in iMovie but nothing dramatic- am quite impressed actually
[pic on right is with iMovie rendering, watching a youtube vid playing and browsing here]
Web browsing with Firefox 42 - 44 degrees. Where I really see it jump is whn I an Emptying Trash Securely. It takes the CPU to 80%+ and the temps rise to around 82 -85 degrees. Fans start running like crazy, pinwheels coming up, madness ensues.
its a program called istat menu, definitely a cool program. I also have my cpu and memory usage up there. Bunch of customization you can do.
i had a mbp with core duo and now i have a mbp with core 2 duo... the core 2 duo mbp runs almost 35 F cooler than the core duo mbp..
has any one noticed this difference...
Okay here's my temp. Just booted it about 5 minutes ago. Also, is the number of stuff I have in the toolbar/menubar okay? I have Growl, Skype, Mail, Adium, iStat Menu Bar, and etc run on Login. But reboot seems to be really fast though
It depends on the speed of your CPU (obviously).
My 2.4Ghz core2duo whitebook runs at around 50-55 when doing normal stuff (itunes firefox adium photoshop etc)
running a VM and converting a movie to iPod format causes it to go up to 65-70 degrees.
Been on for a few hours web browsing & itunes playing
Computer was sleeping for a while when I booted up and took the screen shot.
I pray you're using Fahrenheit as your temperature scale hahahaha
All the first pictures were at celsius so when I saw his at first I thought it was melting =p
LOL I just realized that my MacBook gets hotter temperature than my Q6600 Custom Built Gaming PC
Not unheard of, seeing how these are laptops, with a much smaller form factor
mine's kickin' at 67C w/ me not doing a lot of stuff.. wonder why it's like 20C hotter than others just browsing the web. =/
To stop people worrying this ones in celsius
This is just surfing (Celcius).
I have a late 2008 macbook core2dou and when I use handbrake the processor would go up to 170% or so and the tempreture to 90c and fans are like 6000rpm.
it would get pretty hot playing games too.
I wonder if this will damage my laptop in the long run? I wouldnt like that to happen because current laptop machines still face the same problem, so switching is pointless.
1) will this damage my machine?
2) any tips on controlling the heat?
3)Will using external monitor increase heat/cpu cycles?
What I do is I lift my laptop above 2 books each on one side keeping about 1.5 inches of air space between my laptop and the table for it to breath. I also tilt the screen to make more space for the fans to breath as air blows from the screens hinge(almost)
I noticed that the cpu heat turned down to 83c doing this.
