    Sorry if this has already been answered elsewhere, I haven't seen anything though:

    I'm playing a game on my new base model 13" (2.4 GHz C2D, 320M) and it runs fine enough (smooth framerate, etc) only iStat Pro tells me that my CPU is hanging around 84 deg C. The temperature stays the same regardless of the settings I try.

    Maybe I dont know much about CPU/GPU's, but this seems very hot to me! I mean, 100 C is boiling temperature! Am I at risk of melting/damaging anything in there? If not, how is it possible that the components can operate so hot?

    Thanks!!!

    Perfectly fine, there are probably over a thousand other threads asking your exact question, maybe try searching before posting next time.

    Your CPU and GPU and withstand 110C without any issues, if you do feel inclined to keep things cooler for some reason, download either FanControl or smcFancontrol to ramp up the fans sooner.

    Otherwise your temps are in the normal operating range and there's nothing at all to worry about.
