My iMac is on from 11am on a weekend to 2am roughly and on a school day from 3pm to abut 10pm I always have it on but I wouldn't say I work it hard!

I'll never understand why it's so hard for people to believe that Apple is actually aware of how people use their products and knows how to cool them correctly.
Not to start a fight but people thought the same thing about Toyota and gas pedels or about Ford and tires. I do not think it is unreasonable for someone to ask if a product is performing as it should. Parts break or do not always perform as expected. I know I have purchased case fans that worked great for years, others worked for a while but quit much much sooner, both were produced by the same company. If someone were new to Macs, as I am, I think it is totally a valid question to ask if their product is doing what it should. You have to look no further than the iMac yellow tinge issue to see that sometimes the same parts do not perform the same way, all produced under the watchful eye of Apple Engineers.
