I've been doing a bit of research into this, and based on that research, i think my MDD G4 is running a bit hot. Im currently seeing a CPU temp around 113 deg F (45 deg C), and that's with my fans running full tilt. I'll also point out that this is in a room with an ambient temp of around 65 - 68 deg F. The inside of my computer is dust free, and most of the PCI slots are unused; although i do have CD/DVD drives in both drive bays. Some google searching turned up a few suggestions to 'enable nap mode', and reports of that drastically lowering the average CPU temp. I'm also thinking of adding a PCI slot fan to suck warm air out of the case.
I have a few questions i'd like to ply on the AF community:
- Those of you with MDD G4s (esp. those of you w/ dual 1.25 machines), how hot is your CPU running?
- Are the above listed temps abnormally high?
- If so... would either of the above listed ideas really help?
- Is there anything else i can do to keep my system cool?
Thanks in advance for your help.
