    Question for those aluminium MBP users out there!!

    Oddly, I been using this system for a while now, even in summer it's never really exceed 70°C. Recently I notice my MBP17 (not unibody) has been getting unusually hot, just browsing the web can cause it's temperature to ramp up to and often exceed 80°C!!

    Room temp 26°C .. and it's getting hotter than it was in summer?? Ain't that odd? Is it time to check the thermal paste again??

    Anyone have any suggestions?

    Could be, but if you run Safari in 64-bit mode mine gets a lot hotter than in 32-bit mode.

    WOW really?
    Hmm.. but Safari isn't installed on this machine, I prefer FireFox.

    Next?

    As ayeying said, could dust be clogging up the machine?
