    So i have a 2010 macbook pro that i resurrected form the dead after i sold my macbook retina...waiting for a buick skylark to be released.

    So i added a samsung 840 and left the ram at 4. Installed 10.10.5 and began to use it. So off the bat i notice some ui sluggishness maybe due to the 320m. Enabled Reduce Transparency

    Anyways with the only program open being safari and browsing the cpu goes up to 140f 2000rpm
    safari Youtube 145f 2000rpm
    Vlc 720p 135f 2000rpm
    vlc blu ray quality 170f Fans roaring
    any multi tasking about 160f 2500-3000rpm
    idle about 110f

    wondering if i should reapply thermal paste or do those numbers seem normal? maybe downgrade to mt lion?

    Those seem perfectly normal for a 2010, maybe blow any dust out of the fans if you want but they seem fine.

    I don't speak retarded farenheit, but 170F = 76.7 C, which is only a tiny bit on the warm side for mobile silicon chips.

    Your temps are normal and nothing to worry about. It'll reach 105C before starting to throttle.

    Perhaps a quick search would be a good idea, there are litterally thousands upon thousands of threads just on this subforum asking the same question, with the same answer.

    This is the same of my mid 2009 MBP nowadays. I'm pretty sure this is too be expected for older models. The worst offender on mine is dropbox when I first turn the macbook on. It spends about 10-15 minutes slowly syncing and warming the room up after simply doing nothing but logging into OS X. I really need a new macbook...
