This site will help collect and show the temperatures of Apple Macintosh computers using the new processors by Intel. All new computers that haven't faced the trail of time will have problems and issues that can make users mad and furious. As with the new MacBook Pro machines where were, and still are, problems with heat dissipation. After scouting forums and help sites for information about what temperatures I can expect on a new MacBook, but that turned out to be harder and more scattered than I first imagined. That's the main motive behind this site and it didn't take too long to setup as I had the base code handy from another site. -

Comments:
SYSTEM FAN DOES NOT EVER TURN ITS SPEED UP ABOVE 2000 RPM WITHOUT THAT FAN SPEED HACK PROGRAM. PMU RESET DOES NOT HELP. APPLE HAD ME SEND IT TO CUPERTINO FOR AN AUTOPSY.

USE SMC FAN CONTROL PROGRAM TO SET FANS TO 5000 RPM MINIMUM WITH ONE OF THESE OR YOUR SYSTEM WILL MELT.
