    Hey guys,

    As the title says, my Macbook Air running freaking amazingly hot ever since the latest Mac Update. Any ideas, I can't find anything in the Activity monitor that could be causing my Macbook to be running so hot.

    Any help would be highly appreciated.

    I was having a similar issue, although mine wasn't quite that hot, but my fans were on full speed when I was doing nothing which got pretty frustrating.

    Bizarrely, a restart seemed to do the trick and now all is cool again.

    I had done like two "hard" restart aka holding the power button down and doing it but I did a normal reboot and it seems to have completely fixed my issue . . . go freaking figure.

    Thank you so much!

    I was having heat problems too, so I reset the PRAM and that seemed to solve it. You might want to remember that in the future.

    Had the same problem as the OP, but a simple reboot put things back to normal.

    I don't know if they are related in any way, but I do use both CoolBookController and smcFanControl.

    Interesting. I havent checked the temps, but my Rev B has been running the fan so much less or slower since the update.
