    Fan Speeds
    Just wondering what the norm is for fan speeds on a 24" iMac?

    This a print from my iStat pro widget and was just making sure this is ok and nothing is about to fry anytime soon?

    mine is currently running 800rpm, 800rpm, 1400rpm. I'm have a 20" and it's been on for 3 hrs now. I think you're ok.

    These values look pretty normal to me. Shouldn't be anything to worry about. As a data point, my PowerMac G5 CPU fans run about 500 rpm and the hard drive fans between 1000 and 1500 (iStatPro reports on three different drive related fans).
