Hey guys,


I installed Windows 8 Pro System Builder on my rMBP and all is well except the heat. My fans are constantly running and the MBP is hot to the touch. It's like I'm running a video game all the time.


What are the dangers of this?


I love Windows 8 and it runs as far as I can tell perfectly fin on my Mac (minus the heat) and I would like to continue running it if at all possible, but won't if the heat is gonna cause issues for it.
