    Hey does anybody know the max running temperature of an old 266 imac because I put a western digital 160gb hard drive in mine and I think it might be runnin a little hot. the drive is 7200 Rpm but I heard the controller should tone that down to whatever it can handle. but main question is about temperature. and then how I could cool it

    Good luck. Very few people run Mac's especially one as old as yours is. I would suggest visiting Apple and check out some tech doc's on thermal specs.

    As for what's in your sig. The reason why Apple switched to Intel was because the IBM power pc proccessors ran too hot. I know some people that swear by apple and they may be on the rebound with this recent switch. I used to own a powerbook. Found i was having a hard time with compatibility and switched to PC's. Apple had dug it's own grave using proprietary hardware and software. I think the i-pod is the main reason why they are still in business.
