Imac 27 0ver heating
1 Attachment(s)
My Imac27 3.06 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo OS10.6.8, is overheating I downloaded IStat Pro to monitor the temps. I then downloaded smcFanControl 2.2.2. When I tried to open the fan control nothing happened. I tried dragging the Icon from the applications folder to the trash to uninstall and to try again to download and install it but I get a message that says it can't be moved to the trash because it's open. I can't find where it is to close it. It doesn't show up in the menu and when I go to force quit, it's not on the list.

Help please!

Are those reading in C or F?

Those readings are F Dennis. His fan speeds are all normal and I don't see any overheating at all. (If those readings were C the fans would be going crazy.)

To the OP: Get rid of SMCFanControl. Your temps and fan speeds are normal.

That is what I figured Charley. Reason I asked as he said it was overheating and if those were in C that would be very true! :D
