Hello there. I don't rly know if problem like that was already mentioned here, i couldn't find it
If yes then sorry for littering the forum >_<. Anyway, lets talk business: I have this intel aluminum iMac 24 for two years now and a while ago i noticed some drops in performance. I tried to get rid of unnecessary apps, files, run cleaning programs etc. but then i took a peek on the iStat and i was like: HOLY COW!
Those are in fahrenheit ofc. Heat spikes like this start after an hour if no programs are running the power supply stays at 167 F but if i just turn on fire fox and run it for a while then its like on the image. Same for photoshop and illustrator, but its never worser then this. I might not be an expert but i bet its not good for the screen since everything is packed together :S
Repair history: 2008 January 4 days after i bought it had to take him back to iSpot to change the power supply. The problem was: it suddenly turned off on its own and wouldn't start anymore. After the replace it was all fine.
Almost exactly one year later in January 2009 my screen started to "blink" making short, random shutdowns. Sometimes for a longer like 4-8 sec, sometimes just for a blink of an eye, sometimes when it took a little longer for it to recover i tapped lightly the backs upper right corer and it went back to normal. The whole screen had to be replaced. I really don't want this to happen again especially because my warranty is over
Pleas help me, what might it be or maybe i'm doing something wrong
Thank you for your time guys also sorry for my English, im not a native English speaker
