    Welcome to the club.

     

    Sitting in front of my beloved Mid 2012 MBPR @ 77 Degree Celsius and the fans @ 4320 RPM (with smc fancontrol).

     

    Opened: Safari few tabs, Mac Mail, Word, Outlook, Skype, Fireworks CS6, Filezilla, Spotify (playing), TextWrangerl and TeamViewer. I know Fireworks fire up the Geforce Card and that´s a lot of heat I live with this sh*t and wait until it dies (have Apple Care 2 years remaining). On the next failure i give to my wife and buy me a newer model. I love OSX and Mac to much for going back to Windows. I know it´s a shame...

     

    But more heavier where the 8 dead pixels i had. I got an new display December last year, now only the heat remains. But i have no desire for a multiple changing of my logicboard for no effect at the end.

    Let me pile on. I souped up version with 16g etc in December and have been noticing the heat issue and I am glad I ran into this thread. I even ordered this week an SF-19 cooling pad with twin fans and AC power to cool down this microwave. 

     

    I did run into something that looks very promising since last night. Ran the Activity Monitor and noticed multiple threads of Chrome Helper taking 10 to 20% of the cpu. I killed these processes and I am now un the low 30's C for heat when I was in the 90's. I am going to give Chrome a rest for a while and see if this maybe a contributor.

     

    Just my own experience so take it for what is worth

    All day today. This is just a sample but all data points were consistently low.

    The surface heat of the keyboard is extremely too high on my MB Retina. Bought it 3/2013 and it's always been hot.  Today I became fed up with it and took it's surface temperature and it's sitting at 130+ F on the keyboard while just watching a YouTube video.  Really hoping that Apple Care can fix the situation as the support staff over the phone was utter garbage.   Just to put it into perspective... 130F is almost enough to fully cook ham and that temperature is under my fingers.  I'm still trying to justify to myself why I spent $2700 total after student discount on this machine and it's becoming harder each day.  Hopefully they don't try to change out the hardware with hardware that is unequal in performance like they have been known to do.  (*Sigh*) so much frustration with Apple right now.

    I have a 2012 15 inch rMBP 8gb 2.7 i& + NVidea, I've had heat issues since purchase and thought it was just me. SMC Fan Control & iStat show fan speeds upto 5800rpm and a temp of upto 105C, I've previously had a screen swap(image retention), fan swap and also a replacement logic board, I've recently cloned my HD and ran tests on another retina machine in a local store and the readings were nowhere near as high, 20C lower and fan speeds below 3000 when performing the exact same test routine (lightroom photo export). Booked into Genius for this Friday, I'll post back my findings.

    Ok. I got my new MBP a few days ago and I was facing the same problem of excessive heat. I just want to update here that I read somewhere in the post about CHROME related problems. It turned out that since I Quit Chrome, the heat went down a lot. I will be installing the iStat as as well, just to keep an eye. By the way, is there any other iStat equivallent software out there (free).

  • caedlesu Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Hi, I'm considering in buying a 15" rMBP but after reading all of this stuff about heating problems I'm having second thoughts.

    Does anyone have the same problems with the 2014 version?
    I'm going to use it mostly for coding and working, but I'd also like to play from time to time and the heat problem concern me a lot.

    Thanks
