Best way to cool your iMac
Authored by: wizbang_fl on Sep 04, '12 05:52:01PM

SMC Fan Control helped a lot. I had been told the metal mac cabinet on the new iMac's was intended to act as a heat sink. Wondering if you attached some sort of cooling device to the outside of the cabinet (like a water cooler) if you could get a more effective solution rather than just moving around air.

I routinely open up my Desktop / Laptop every year to blow out dust, dirt, etc that has been sucked in. It's more than I would have thought would accumulate in a year, but with a cat & dog even their hair gets sucked in.

Yes, it takes some time, but we have an '06 iMac (gave to my spouse last year) that still runs circles around a lot of my friends Windows laptops that they've only had a year. Had my iMac 27" just over a year, but I haven't had a chance to open it up yet.
