My MacBook is hitting 90 degrees centigrade!
« on: January 30, 2010, 03:16:54 PM »

I have an app that runs in my app bar (smcFanControl) that sets the default fan speed at double what the Apple default is. This because it's been running hot lately. But I just saw now that it's reaching 90 degrees! This seems to happen when I run Windows 7 via parallel when working in XCode.

So err.. should I be worrying?

Just had a peek in Activity Monitor and saw that it was Remote Desktop using nearly 100% CPU. Restarting it fixed the problem.. so I guess I should be blaming Microsoft then as they wrote the program LOL

Microsoft should be blamed for all the evils in the world! Why not?

It should be pretty safe to 105. The mac does get pretty warm.

It amuses me that when you turn it on, it is a cold a ice (because of the Aluminium) and then the ali carries all the heat to the left side where you rest your hand. It is winter here and using the macbook results in one warm hand and one cold one.
