    Hi!! I'm downloading the sims 4 right now from origin, I tried looking up if others that have MacBook Pro non touch bar base model have tried to play sims on their laptop, but I couldn't find any related post. I know my laptop is not really ideal for gaming, but My question is, would it be safe for me to play sims 4 on my MacBook Pro? I don't need it on the highest settings. I'm just worried about my laptop heating up. Would it fry my laptop? Here's the requirements

    Your laptop will be just fine. Should play the game without any difficulty.

    you are right! I was able to play it, however the laptop got hot. I was using the system pal application where it could tell the temperature. it was 63 degree Celsius and the fan was running to 3000 to almost 4000 rpm. is it safe?

    so the laptop being hot is totally okay since the temperature is only 63? how about the fan speed? I use the system pal app. im sorry for too many questions!!

    The laptop will shutdown itself if it gets too hot.

    The cpu can tolerate as much as 100C until it dies eventually in a some point.

    The fan does its job - keeping the system temperature down and when it needs to cool down it more, the fan starts spinning faster.

    What happens when the computer dies from being too hot? Does it shortens the battery or damage anything for long term? does it have a long term effect on the laptop?

    As Vatter69 said above, if your MacBook gets too hot - it will shut down to prevent overheating.

    Dont worry.

    Just play, you're not going to have any problems and it's not worth worrying, unless you stuff the machine in a sauna you're not going to harm it by playing such a game.

    did it ever affect the battery life or over all performance (long term) of your MacBook?
