Late 2014 27" iMac temperature range question
Posted by: richorlin

Apple lists the operating temp for this model is 50-95F
my temp guage reads like this. Is there anything to worry about? Thanks. Also, I note there is no reading for the fusion drive. Is this normal? BTW, I hardly ever turn it off other than to reboot occasionally

Are you sure those operating specs aren't in degrees Centigrade?

I'd worry more about the cause of heating, i.e. the CPU and other hardware resource loads. Activity Monitor is your friend.

Worry about what. Those temps are perfectly normal.

I have the same model and use it much in the same way you do - I just downloaded that app and ran it in trial mode. My avg temps are slightly higher than yours, but the app shows a Hard Drives section in the column on the left - yours doesn't. Seems odd. I have a fusion drive also - it shows two items both at right around 100º F.

I've never had anything that looks like overheating symptoms.

Centigrade range is 10° to 35° C

$18 for the app is silly, but OK.

My 2010 27" i7, sitting in the same spot, doing the same thing as my current 2014 27 iMac was so hot on the top left you could only barely touch it for longer than 1-2 seconds

this iMac is cooler than the other side of the pillow.

Im opening/closing/saving 1000s of files and running 2 addtional monitors. (27" and 24")

I was using an older version that apparently doesn't do hard drives.
I installed the demo and the drives show up. Thanks.

95 degrees Centigrade would be close to 200 degrees Fahrenheit.



It is what it is.

I always took the temperature range specified by Apple to mean ambient, not internal temperature.

Yeah...that makes sense now that I think about it. Thanks.

According to Everymac your iMac has a i5 4690 CPU. According to Intel Tcase (maximum CPU case temperature) is 72.72 C (162.90 F).
