    I've reached 208 degrees, Fahrenheit. How high have you guys gotten?
    It also managed to force sleep itself while in clamshell mode.

    Im using the inCase perforated case as well.

    Many have reported temps as high as 105C (221F) without their Macs shutting down, as they will if temps get too high for a sustained period of time. Your temps are perfectly normal, as searching the forum with Google will reveal:

    Oh I'm not worried that they're higher than normal, I'm just looking for a high score. ;)

    I jut ran 3D Mark and got 212F. High score!

    I do believe that the tMax is 5 degrees lower with SNB than Arrandale.

    You think that will make a considerable difference? I may consider it myself.

    Careful. A lot of people are throwing that idea around. It's fine for those with experience of course, who can afford and are well aware of the possibility of losing their money should something go wrong. But it's a very bad idea for anyone that can't afford the risk of throwing money away, or is at all unsure of what they are doing inside the machine. Always, always after a new refresh, people start saying their MBP's run hot. It is rampant with the 2011 now, it was rampant with the 2010, it was rampant with the 2009, and on down the line. It always fades, and come the next refresh, it crops up again. No idea why. Guess what? All those machines that were "far too hot and Apple did wrong", are probably still kicking just fine these days.

    Best thing to do, is just get your machine, and enjoy it. If it is one of very few that actually have a problem, it will be covered and replaced by Apple. And be aware that if you're doing things these machines are not designed specifically to do, ie. running Windows, gaming heavily in Windows, or even OS X, it will get much warmer than doing "normal" tasks that it was intended to do. It's by no means bad or unsafe to do those things, but be aware it taxes the machine harder, and it will make it much warmer.

    If you open it up and take matters into your own hands, and something goes wrong with your work, or with the machine down the road, even possibly for an unrelated matter, your warranty will be void. Your money will be gone. That's worst case, granted, and very unlikely to happen :) But weigh that choice carefully. Once it's done, that's it. It sure would suck to fine tune (and that's what that mod does, it finely tunes something that was already well within normal and safe ranges, it is by no means a fix for any kind of problem) your new baby, and then lose a ton of money later because it voided the warranty ;)

    Saw mine hit 100C once before I installed Fan Speed and took the situation into my own hands.

    218F? You got me beat.

    I ran 3D Mark and everything, AND I have the upgraded 100 Mhz BTO. I can't get much past 212ish.

    Maybe my SSD is helping keep temperatures down?

    We're discussing this in another thread, so I took the time to check the archives--discussions of excessive heat have been with the MBPs with almost every release, but there actually was no rampant outburst for the 2010 models. Instead there were a lot of people celebrating that they were cooler.

    The new ones are also the first ones with a TDP of 45w, and the fans have been turned up so they max at 6500rpm.

    Doesn't running it in clamshell mode encourage over heating?
    Doesn't the exhaust fan blow up in front of the the monitor, and isn't heat released through the keys? I feel like anyone using a henge dock would be completely boned if they want to play a video game in windows.

    mine idles around 55C. around 65C under Windows. seems to stay at or under 85C in OS X, but I've seen it max out at 98C in Windows while gaming or something.

    You've hit 98C in Windows while gaming? 212F is 100C which is what I hit.
    That's so damn hot if you think about it.

    60 seems to be my average idle in OSX however if I really let it do nothing I can get 50.

    This is my record, it's for a 14 month old MBP, not a 2011, so I still have 22 months Applecare. On next reboot, intend to do all the resets.

    I hit 94C once, but it was like 90F in the room that I was sitting in. I was using flash. I quickly moved to a colder room and it cooled down haha
