thanks for your reply. i followed the guide while having the applications open and the activity monitor shows that the game is using between 70% and 80% CPU. But what i dont understand is that i could play that game on a computer that had much lower specification than my current Macbook
Elevate it, there are products that do that, allowing air to get underneath.
If it is a Core iX those do run warmer.
There was a bug in the design of software for OS X that would cause Nehalem Mac Pro even with 10.6.2 to spike up into temperatures that are on the verge of the thermal max, doing nothing but iTunes or other audio, and wasting a lot of processor cycles (thrashing).
Summer heat? or started with 10.6.4? (in which case go back to earlier).
The surface it is on doesn't allow heat to dissipate.
