right at this moment, i am streaming on ustream, have my emails, IRC, MSN, Safari and skype open. 


My operating temp is 85 degrees Celsius.


that to me seems quite hot, although it could be because of the unibody, could anyone clarify as to whether this is normal, or what?


The hottest thing from what I read is the CPU, followed closely by the GPU diode at 80degrees.

johnr: Cook me some eggs on it



lol, was my initial thought. 


Might take a bit longer than usual, but im sure we'll get there.




It's just dropped 15 degrees after moving it, so lets see how that goes.

How are you measuring the temperature?

Aluminium unibody is suppose to help the disspation of heat by absorbing it away from CPU heatsink.

I usually don't trust temperature measuring utility software as they often misrepresent actual temperature.

Was using iStat




Its now reporting 63 degrees, so thats about 20ish degrees off what it was orginally, must have been the surface i had it on, which is odd, because it was an evn, flat surface.

You can also try Temperature Monitor, I've just tested under 10.6.1 and appears to work correctly.
Fun tip, if you turn on the History graph, and crank up something CPU intensive, you can watch your temps soar!


I suggest opening Terminal and typing


yes > /dev/null


and then opening another Terminal tab and doing same again (this should load both cores to 100%).


Temperature Monitor





Cheers,
Joseph.

Oh my dear god.

Just had it running at 103 degrees CELCIUS.

It was on a solid wood desk, evenly placed, and it was secure deleting the trash.

I have never seen anything go this high on a laptop :|

Your MBP is newer than mine so maybe have a look here:

So further add to this, after doing a search - http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=2069785&tstart=30

I think I will ring Apple tomorrow and inquire about this. It really doesn't seem right.

I'm so gutted :(

It's going in tomorrow to be chucked on the diagnostics tests etc.

The guy I spoke to was fantastic - Extremely nice guy. I will have to try find his company name again.


In some ways I hope he DOES find something so that I can get it fixed now. But in some ways i don't, because I dont like being away from my MBP :( I love this machine!

PS: Jofizz - My battery that you replaced about a month back is still looking good. It's only at 11 cycles though, so we'll see how it goes when I start reading 20ish charges where the last one crapped out.
But fingers crossed!
