Recently I purchased a late 2012 Macbook Pro. It's the 13 inch model with a dual core 2.9ghz, i7 processor, 750gb Hardrive and 8gb RAM. I've had some heating issues with it, my cores have been reaching 95 - 106 Degrees Celsius when playing games like Minecraft and World Of Warcraft.


I understand these machines were not built for gaming but I thought it should be able to cope with these low graphic intensive games. I've had no frame rate issues or 'lag' when playing.


Will this damage my hardware in any way?



MacBook Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)
