Both CPU and GPU close to 90 Degrees while gaming

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Please mac haters, just stay out of this thread.

I installed Windows 7 on my Macbook Pro and started playing some BC2 today, but my temps are in the high 80's (both GPU and CPU temp). Is this safe for a laptop? I feel that the temps are unusually high. I don't want to ruin my laptop or anything either.

So are these operating temperatures safe?

Not safe at all.

Really high from my experience.

My laptop gets over 100C with just firefox open, they just have horrible cooling .

If there aren't any obvious obstructions of airflow, and you still have warranty, then just don't bother. If you don't have warrenty, go and open it up and clean out the dust, reseat the heatsink, and possibly mod the fan or it's shroud.

Wow. You need a new laptop.

Get a laptop cooler for $10-$20... My old laptop went up to 70-80C. 100C does look really high even for a laptop.

I'm not sure apple covers warranty if I have Windows installed on it and it crashes while in Windows.

well seeing as its a macbook, i know first hand that they were never designed to run heavy tasks for an extended period of time, like say a gaming notebook or a server. but those temps do look a bit on the iffy side, but they should be fine, if your worried about them, try to keep it on a hard surface, never on your lap, or on your bed, and if you want, grab a notebook cooler, like the one from cooler master

PS: im not hating on macs or whatever, but im just saying, the most demanding thing i can think of that a mac does is video rendering and the occasional starcraft II which btw is an awesome game XD

Ya, I was exaggerating a bit, on my laptop @ idle its 70C, I think it shuts off at a little over 100C. It is a 4-5 year old AMD TL-56.

Also, I think macbooks have the rear intake/exhaust, so I don't think a laptop cooler would do much. I would try to tape a 120 fan to the intake if you were worried.

Not to be a troll but I believe your temps are what they are because Mac's aren't exactly known for airflow and performance as they are known for say being "cool".

Not bashing but it's a fact. I can't say with any certainty that those are normal temps for a Macbook but I have a Lenovo T500 and even running IBT temps on the cores (Core 2 Duo P6700 @ 2.53GHz) never exceeded ~75C.

It could just be the layout of the motherboard and fan solutions to be honest.
