Currently Being ModeratedJun 26, 2010 3:33 AM (in response to Bat9th)Mine runs pretty hot, around 47-53C from when I'm not doing anything, to just lightly browsing the web. But if I do absolutely anything where flash is involved, even YouTube, it shoots up to 60 within 30 seconds.
I keep the fans set at 2600RPMs with FanControl, so when it gets above 50C the fans increase with the temp.
But wow, 34-37? What am I doing wrong?MBP 13 2.26GHz Unibody, Mac OS X (10.6.4)

It is meant to be on a hard flat surface so air can circulate past the bottom of the case which is part of the heat dissipation design. My fans begin to speed up between 70 and 75 degrees C. At 85 degrees C they are at full speed.Macbook Pro, Mac OS X (10.5.8), 15", 2 GHZ Core Duo CPU, 2 GB RAM, 100 GB Hard Disk
