Sorry if this has been answered before, I looked at the XServe Manual and their temperature information was not much of a help.
Basically, I have XServe 2,1 (Early 2008 Model) running in my room without A/C.
After running it for 6 hours, this is the current temperature:
SMB NORTHBRIDGE CHIP DIE: 62 C
SMC AMBIENT AIR: 41 C
SMC AMBIENT AIR POSITION 2: 42 C
SMC CPU A DIODE: 52 C
SMC CPU A HEAT SINK: 48 C
SMC CPU B DIODE: 55 C
SMC CPU B HEAT SINK: 46 C
SMC CPU C DIODE: 47 C
SMC CPU D DIODE: 47 C
SMC DRIVE BAY 1: 48 C
SMC DRIVE BAY 2: 43 C
SMC DRIVE BAY 3: 45 C
SMC EXPANSION SLOTS: 50 C
SMC MEMORY BANK A POS 0: 46 C
SMC MEMORY MODULE A1: 61 C
SMC MEMORY MODULE A2: 62 C
SMC MEMORY MODULE A3: 61 C
SMC MEMORY MODULE A4: 59 C
SMC NORTHBRIDGE CORE: 63 C
SMC NORTHBRIDGE HEAT SINK: 53 C
SMC PCI SLOT 1 POS 1: 50 C
SMC PCI SLOT 1 POS 2: 51 C
SMC PCI SLOT 2 POS 1: 45 C
SMC PCI SLOT 2 POS 2: 48 C
SMC POWER SUPPLY POSITION 1: 45 C
SMC POWER SUPPLY POSITION 2: 47 C
SMC POWER SUPPLY POSITION 3: 47 C
SMC POWER SUPPLY POSITION 4: 43 C
SMC POWER SUPPLY POSITION 5: 59 C
SMC POWER SUPPLY POSITION 6: 50 C
I've used "Temperature Monitor" to get this value.
I was wondering if this was a Safe Temperature for running XServe 24/7 365.
Also, I keep reading a lot on "Server Monitor", however I am on OS X Lion and dont seem to be able to find it anymore. I've checked out the "Server" from apple store, however, I was not able to find "Monitor" in there. I wanted to monitor my fan speed.
