    I have a macBook Pro 13 with
    2.53 GHz 4bgs of ram and 320gb hd
    (hey its all i could afford)

    im running final cut pro 6 on it and i have the temperature monitor on it and i notice during a long and capture my temp. reaches 90+ Celsius :eek.
    In my opinion i would say thats way too hot for any machine to run.
    My question is whats the max temp the mbp can take?
    and is there anything i can do to keep her cool?

    Do you mean log and capture by that?

    You can use FanControl to set your own rules, for instance, when the temperature rise above 60°C the fan has to spin with at least 3500rpm, and so forth.

    The maximum temperature those modern CPUs can take is about 110/120°C.

    What kind of footage are you capturing by the way? SD or HD? In if HD, is it highly compressed like AVCHD footage? That would explain the temperature.

    90°C is a little bit hot for capturing DV encoded video.

    Maybe have a look at Activity Monitor (Show All Processes should be selected) and see what process uses those CPU cycles.

    Are you capturing to an external drive?
