    Anyone else notice that their CPU temperature rose a bit after the EFI update?

    I had no freezes whatsoever and it ran pretty cool throughout my usage pattern.

    Now after the EFI update my CPU temperature is a bit higher at around 70C-77C with the fan staying mostly at around 2800RPM as to the 2200RPM before the EFI update.

    My CPU temperatures were at around 66C-70C before the EFI update.

    No changes here.

    Try a reboot? Your kernel_task might be stuck at full CPU.

    Yea, I just actually shut down the macbook pro and booted it back and running close to what it was before the EFI update.

    70C-72C at 2400rpm on my usage pattern now, all is good!
