What is the right operational temperature and fan speed of Macbook Air?

The fan speed is 6000-6200RPM and the temperature is 50-60 celsius. Is it normal?

I’m happy that the fan that I received from iFixit worked and that it wasn’t a board problem. But, I just replaced my fan on my 2010 MBA 13” and I’m still getting temperatures in the upper 80ºC. What is the next solution?

This should help you determine if there is a problem:

Your Mac is not overheating. The Intel processors used in Macs are designed to automatically shut down to prevent damage if they truly overheat (around 100C/212F - 105C/221F, depending on your processor). iStat Pro will give you accurate readings of your temps and fan speeds, among other things.

Unless there is a rare defect in a Mac, most temps are well within the normal operating range, considering the workload being put on it. Websites with Flash content, games and other multimedia apps will put higher demand on the CPU/GPU, generating more heat. This is normal. If you're constantly putting high demands on your system, such as gaming or other multimedia tasks, expect temps to rise and fans to spin up accordingly. It's just your Mac doing its job to maintain temps within the normal range.

Your fans are always on when your Mac is on, spinning at a minimum of 2000 rpm (for MBPs) or 1800 rpm (for MBAs, MBs and minis). They will spin faster as needed to keep temps at a safe level. If they're spinning up without increased heat, try resetting the SMC. PRAM/NVRAM has nothing to do with these issues, so resetting it will not help. Also, make sure you don't block the vents, which are located at the rear, near the hinge.

Mine never turns on. Even looked at Mac Fan Control to see if it was just so quiet that I couldn’t hear it but nope. My fan isn’t spinning at all..ever


Thanks Mayer!

had problems with overheating, after about 10 minutes of watching video, the mouse is not operated more video and began to give Picotes locking. I cleaned the fan, realized that.

the thermal paste was hardened, brittle, tnha highlighted the processor heatsink after removal and placement of new thermal paste, the problem is over.
