Default heat issues ??? - 10-19-2009, 05:38 PM

i just completed the ram update and was a bit too quick reassembling without looking for the pads.
is there any way how i can read the cpu temperature?
compare to my macbook pro it is very cool. i just try to do a lot of processing at the moment to see how hot it gets.
how hot would be normal?

Lavalys EVEREST Ultimate Edition (version 5.30.x or above is needed) is one of the easiest software to do so, however, it is not free....

mini 10 (1010, AU)|1GB RAM|160GB HDD|BlueTooth|DVB-T|GMA 500|1024x576

Inspiron 1300n|1GB RAM|60GB HDD|DVD+RW|GMA 900|1280x800

Both run with Windows XP Home SP3 + Windows 7 Ultimate RC dual-OS.

I use Core Temp to watch mine. A quick Google search and you'll find it. Typically, when I'm not doing much other than listening to audio via iTunes, I run between 35-40 C. It can and does get higher than that though.

my normal runs at about 38c,if you do a lot of processing ,it might produce more heat and result in higher temperature.

focus on the battery development.

thanks for the answers.
i forgot to mention that i am using os x.
i installed temperature monitor but it seems just to find a temperature sensor in the hd.
is this the only one or is there one in the atom cpu as well?
when playing 2 you tube videos + music from itunes + 1 divx files it gets warm but still ok to touch (unlike my macbook pro which gets really hot) without the battery inside and using just the power adapter. not sure if this is good (because cooling works) or bad (because cooling does not work and heat stays inside).
