so iv got the temperature monitor for my 15" MBP, but i have no clue which parts of the computer i should be monitoring, and how hot or cold they should be. any suggestions?
here are the locations:
graphics processor heatsink 1
graphics processor temperature D
Main heatsink 1
main heatsink 2
main heatsink 3
SMART disk hitachi
Don't monitor any of it. There is are a ridiculous amount of posts on the forum devoted to temperature issues--which are actually non-issues. Macs are designed to be able to handling running hot. If they run too hot, the Mac will notify you.
When was the last time you heard a Windows user complaining that there machine was running too hot? They don't. Why? Because they don't get a temperature gauge. It's a neat feature--but it seems to cause a lot of confusion.
Don't bother monitoring any of it.
Temp monitors only seem to lead to obsessive behavior and unnecessary attention to the computer's heat levels.
