    Default How hot is too hot?
    so i've been doing some things lately on my macbook, and it seems to run ridiculously hot compared to my pc.. i know its expected, but whereas i would flip out if my pc proc hit 70C, but it's inevitable on my macbook...

    right now i'm at 54C with my fan at 3500 rpm (set by smc fan control)..
    When i stream video it hits 70C no problem..

    Highest i've ever seen it go, 98C.. no kidding, checked by istatpro(dashboard) and smcfancontrol... i was ripping a dvd and streaming trigun... the proc was at ~93% load.. i just figure if it melts/breaks, i've got applecare

    So what are your temps?
