    71C is way to high, I'm not good with apple comps, but that is not a normal problem. Call Apple, it could potentially do serious damage.

    I live in Canada, and also the 1 Year Warranty is not in effect anymore, seeing as I've had it for over a year. I have also not purchased AppleCare. How much do you think a thing like this would cost to get fixed? -_-

    If the Apple call is going to cost lots of money, etc... I may aswell buy an "iBreeze" I think it is called...

    It is hard to tell how much it will cost since it isn't really clear what is wrong ..

    That is true. Does calling apple cost money? Maybe it might be the 'firmware' or whatever controls the fans. Maybe the fan is dead. I don't think I heard it when it was that high in temperature. It usually turns on -- but only over 60˚C
