Currently idling at 44-45C with fans set to default. Well…idling…I’m running chrome with 3 tabs open, Adium, Coolbook, Activity monitor, 3 textedit windows and a few finder windows. So yeah, idling :P :D

Setting fans to 4000 rpm leads to a 3-4 degree decrease in CPU temp and a 3 degree decrease in the temp being read off by smc fan control (it doesn’t read CPU , it reads something else).

Edit: BINGO , revved up the fans to 6200 rpm and hit 39 C.

Chrome just crashed while running flash, might be because flash ate up too much cycles. If this continues then I will raise the bar a little.

Yup I just crashed it again by watching a HD video on YT. Upped the voltage to 1V for the top cycles.

Yeah I had this problem alot with my non unibody mbp. With the Unibody, I don’t have that many problems. Yes, it still gets hot but not as hot.

My old MBP was 100c when running WOW , thats with fans at 6000rpm. Feeling the back of the vents, I could barely feel any air flow which I think is a joke. My temp was reading 108c at top speed. I called my local apple store, they assured me its okay.

Now, I’m not an idiot. I don’t care how they’re designed, marketing can’t beat physics, 100c on a cpu is not good.

With the unibody, I can actually feel the vents pulling it and blowing out air, except one problem, it tends to blow out air on the bottom vent which is usually blocked when on a flat table. It’s not as much of a big deal as the old MBP , as I created a simple elevation and the temperature drops to a healthy 75c at max (6000 rpm), even when running SC2 .

The best part of the new MBP I found when opening the case is the fans and vents are very easily cleared. You can dismantle the fans, clean it out and put it back in. Really helpful. The old one, you had to fight a war to get to the fans.

so far, unibody imo is the best MBP when it comes to cooling it down. Oh and you need smcfan control too.

like blabus said, the aluminum doe slet heat through, but I see you already fixed your problem.

I also saw a cooler with two or three built in fans, was a bit more exensive than the normal cooler though. But I don’t remember what it was called, sorry.

Can someone explain how a software can display the cpu temperature? I suppose is all about estimations, but what about external conditions, or if your girl is so hot and she place near to the mbp.

Does this software works with babies? :D

There’s a sensor inside the machine. Some mobo’s don’t have a sensor, you cannot see the temperature then.
