Macpro 3.1 2008 temperatures

Recommended Posts

Iv always wondered about the temperatures of this mac being 11 years of age. I believe it still has the original CPU paste in it. 


It sports 2x 2.8ghz intel quad core xeon processors. 


When i render in final cut im getting 100% full load on all 8 cores. 


Getting 45 degrees celcius but with full fan speeds. 


Noise is loud but id rather have low temps. 



I dont mind about the noisy fans aslong as it gives me low temps. 


Is 45-46 deg. Celsius low on full CPU load for an  11 year old computer running, possibly, stock paste?


thanks in advance.
