    Flash is a real resource hog. Try not streaming youtube and see what kind of temps show off.

    Also try smcFanControl and set your fans to 3000 RPM. I get 50 C streaming youtube, break.com and running vlc at the same time.

    I ran smcfanControl at 6,000rpm for 5 minutes, cooled it down to 43 degrees and seems stable now!

    Damn, I got really worried then! - How on earth does it get SO HOT so QUICK

    The fans didn't push in at all until you forced ?

    I recommend configuring smc to run at ~3000 RPM when in AC and 3500 RPM when charging. On battery you can easily run at 2000 RPM and your temps will still be ~50 C.
