about power mac DC temperture's

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
is it okay to keep turned my PM on without air conditioner/AC in my room

cuz i always leave my PM to DL and leave it at home...

the CPU temperture can up to 44 celcius and the GPU can reach 63 celcius...without AC ...but with AC it always about 40 celcius for the CPU and 56 for the GPU ...im afraid the GPU will be toast..

is it okay to leave my MAC on up to 12 hours without AC...cuz if i turned my AC on every day it will be noisy..and raise up my electric bill...

what is the limit temperture... for powermac DC 2.0ghz i lived in indonesia...so its quite hot like singapore...

    The fans will take care of the temperature to keep it within spec. If the temperature exceeds the specs despite the fans being at max, the machine will shut down.
