Mac desktop is overheating

Recommended Posts

Hi Damien, long time since I've been here. Just today I noticed my mac desktop overheating a lot more than normal. 27inch iMac. It works fine and even though it's very hot I can still edit pictures. But it's beginning to worry me so I just turn it off. I can't hear any fans running so I think the fans are out. Any DIY tips?

No DIY tips. Either a fan / vent is clogged or a heat sink is faulty. So a trip to the Genius Bar might be in your future  

Also, what are you editing when it overheats? What camera body do you shoot with? How much RAM do you have installed? How much free space on your HD do you have?
