    lately my macbook has been getting a bit noisy and hot the fans seem to kick on alot 3500-4500rpm range and @idle my CPU is ranging 68-75C (iStat), right now as im typing this she's at 77-80C. Functionality aside everything is pretty stable, including playing the occasional WoW.

    Anyone else have any issues like this? I've booked a Genius Bar appointment just in case.

    Check activity monitor. Something has to be pushing the fans.

    so ive been digging around and from the looks of it, looks like Geektools was keeping my cpu occupied. I didnt realize that it was a bit of a hog. Temp has dropped down 54C now.
