* DISCLAIMER: by running tests like this, you put the CPU and cooling system under high load. There is always a chance that something will break. Do not do this unless you are sure. Run it with options: test: small repetitions: infinite instances: 2 (because we have 2 cores) http://tc.versiontracker.com/product/redir/lid/1025167/CPUTest.zipCPUTest (Homepage: http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/macosx/32147) Here, I have a 2.33 GHz non-SR 17" MBP, and after a while the fans go to 6000 rpm both, and the temperature stabilizes within 71-74 C (160-165 F). My friend did the same on 2.4 GHz SR 17" MBP, and he gets 88-90 C (190-194 F). How are your SR MBP results?
