Hey I have the 13-inch 2.26Ghz Macbook Pro with the Geforce 9400m graphics. I've had this since last summer with no issues, but recently I've been starting to use it more for school. (Final Cut, Motion, Ripping DVD's etc.) I've also gotten into doing a bit of gaming. My question is this, is it normal for core temps to sit as high as 90 - 100°C while doing things like rendering video and gaming. For example, I was playing the Sims 3 for the first time the other day, and the core temps sat at about 95°C while playing. Is this a normal temperature? or is it something I need to be worried about. I've already downloaded SMCfancontroller and use it whenever I'm doing something like encoding a DVD. I'm just overly concerned that I might cause some damage if I let it get around 100°C too often. Am I just being paranoid? or is my concern justified?
