We all know how hot our Macs get. But I wanted to actual find out how the new Sandy Bridge compare to the Core 2 Duo. Running CQ on Med Textures, Med LOD (everything else low or off) on my 2.8 Ghz 2009 17" MBP takes my CPU to around 91C. The Core 2 Duo's run hot, but form what I understand, the load max temp for that CPU is 84C. When in space I get about 86C.

Anyone who is running a new Sandy Bridge MBP, I'd be interested to hear what temps you get.

Without smcFancontrol, EVE has gotten to 90C Shocked. But I use smcFancontrol and I have my left fan going at ~4200RPM and my right one at ~2500 RPM; at those speeds my CPU temp is around 75-80C.

BTW, this is in windowed mode...I'm too scared to play fullscreen at 1600 x 1050.

I have a 2011 15' MBP 2.3 Ghz i7

Edit: Those are in-station temps as I have yet to do any combat in my ship. I have all settings on low too... Sad

In space should be less demanding than CQ environments. Since seeing how hot things got under CQ I installed smcFancontrol, and have turned off the CQ environments.

smcFanControl is the solution for any mac (except the Pro maybe)

actually the EFI seems do not handle very well overheating on iMacs too: my GPU (GT130) and Northbridge was over 90 C and no audible fan noise Shocked

moved the smcFanControl sliders to 2/3 of the scale: iMac GPU northbridge back to 60 C, also I noticed the internal overheating on both my new 27" (alu back/ATI) and old 24" (black plastic back/nVidia)

strongly suggested, its free (a WARM thanks to the author!!)

My 13 inch MacBook Pro with i5 proc gets to about 80-82c, it was crashing hard earlier today but seems fine now, i actually went out in ship and though i did not stay logged in too long, maybe 20 minutes, before i could not even last that long.

if your 13" MBP has the intel graphics in it, how well does it handle incara? I'm considering the 13" Macbook Air (maxed cpu/memory) when it comes out later this month.. I'm hoping that EVE is playable on it for when I'm away from my 27" iMac

smcFancontrol doesnt work on my iMac 27. Can you recommend another program?
