1) Questions and Answers : Macintosh : CPU temperature (Message 1765217)
Posted 15 Feb 2016 by Profile Guy LOEBL

I'm running BOINC on a 21,5' iMac, 2,7 GHz Intel Core i5 Processor, 16 Go RAM.
CPU Core temperatures are PERMANENTLY around 85°C, even with calculation settings down to 20%

After quitting BOINC, the temperatures fall down to 62°C within 1 minute, 50°C within 2 minutes. Average temperatures by "normal" use (i.e. BOINC is down) are around 35°C. They climb back to 70°C within 6 minutes after BOINC relaunch.

Macs Fan Control drops those temperatures down to 75°C, wich is still quite high, isn'it?

What's cooking ? Is it safe to keep the app running with such temperatures? What are the right settings (if any) to avoid such high temperatures?

Thanks for help.

Hi Folks.

I'm experiencing excatly the same problems.

OK to stop the BOINC client, but how will we know the problem is fixed?

Hear you soon.
