iBook 12'" G4 1.33GHz normal operating temps?
I just snapped up an iBook 1.33 on Ebay and have started to check it out. The seller
warned in the auction that it's prone to random freezes and it's true. It has 10.5
on it and I just installed the iStat shareware to check the temps. This is what I get:
- Battery----- 86
- CPU Bottom-- 129
- CPU Bottom-- 135
- Mem/Power--- 123
- HDD--------- 124
- Fan (rear)-- 0 rpm (Yikes!)
Even to a neophyte such as me these temps are too high and the fan not cooling
but before I order a fan I was wondering:
-  if there is a way to force the fan to run just to make sure it's broken. I'll be popping off the cover tonight to make sure the connections are plugged in.
-  Also, semi-related...if I upgrade a 1.2GHz iBook (which I also have, as well as a G3 800 and G4 800) to 10.5 will it overtax the hardware? I hadn't planned on it but then I could compare temps as iStat is 10.5 dependent.
Is this a good question?
