Minecraft and MacBook

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So I have a 13" MacBook Pro 2011 summer model.
2.4 GHz Intel Core I5
4gb 1333 MHz DDR3
And ive been playing Minecraft, however my temperatures are reaching 94oc constant, is this harming my laptop? Im using the highest fan rpm as well as a cooling pad. Should I stop playing as it may damage my laptop?

My laptop fan kicks into around 5000rpm when just surfing the web , I think this may be because of my light gaming

Any insight will be useful

I used to have a similar issue with my laptop. Removed sone dustbunnies, and applied fresh thermal paste and everything sorted.

yeah dude mine has the same problem, and we have the same mac.
its not harming imo, unless if it shuts down which means serious stuff, but i've been owning this for the last 2 years, i even saw 106C while transcoding a movie, and it still works perfectly fine.
that web thing happens when you have flash open in 2 tabs; jobs was right when bashing flash, it really gets these stuffs hot and slow like.

but yeah keep going on is what i would say, although i've been cleaning mine out in about 6 months ever since i've got it, but yet to install new, better thermal paste. lots of people say it is worth the hassle but it never annoyed me too much after i learned this was a chronic issue with the early 2011 models and apple didnt do anything about it.

hope it helps!
