Macbook excessively cool during intense tasks

My macbook is excessively cool during intense tasks, for example:

When I played skyrim for 1 hour, if I touch the bottom of my mac, it feels like it just turned on. I do smell something burned in my mac. Any suggestions help.

Are you running Skyrim in OSX? I didn't know there was a Mac version.

So you took the temp reading after you booted back into Mac OSX?

By the time you've rebooted to OSX, your computer has probably cooled off. Try using a utility like Speedfan to monitor temps in windows. I believe it even allows you to chart the readings over time.

Instead of deleting your question, you could leave it so someone with a similar issue can find it in a search instead of asking again.
