guys i notice i idle at around 36C but ram cooks seriously guys 58 to 79C. I gotta tell ya, my girlfriend checks my computer ever hour to make sure its not on fire. smc fan seems to lower ram temps but cpu temps are lowered at a very poor rate. It also makes the room extra hot(with smc blowing out warm air), during ram extensive work. will my ram become firewood guys, what about the cpu is 70C max for my mac pro good.

btw northbridge hits 70c on idle
