Hey guys, I have had my 15 inch retina macbook pro for about 9 months now, and I just noticed that the temp can reach up to 210 degrees F, that's 98 degrees C. Is this normal? I installed SMC fan control and when I am rendering a movie the temp will get up to about 210 and even with the fans at maximum the temp will hold at about 208. Is something wrong?

There is nothing wrong with that temp. It's within it's operating temperature range. I had a MBP 2,2 (2006) that would get that hot when I was rendering audio and video.
