    Im just wondering what is the highest safe temperature to run my 17" C2D

    With a little light editing in final cut, and maybe a small ammount of rendering, my CPU hangs around 150+ Degrees Fahreinheit... Is this normal, and if it is, should i cool it externally, or will the internal fan keep it cool?

    -- Also, my fan never changes speeds, is that normal? My fan is around 1900rpm at 105 Degrees and the same at 140 Degrees...

    The temp is normal for load but I'm not sure about the fans.

    mine 15" MBP runs at 130 F at very little activity. It's gotten up to 170 F, which i quickly lowered using my fan control app. I think 150 F is fine for Final Cut activity
