    Tried searching but can't find anything.

    My 2.4 Aluminum Macbook is running at about 189F (87C) and the fan is revving up to 6200+RMwhile playing The Frozen Throne campaign. I just finished playing the original WC3 campaign and although the temperature was around the same the fan was at 4400RPM. I'm running the latest WC3 patch and using up-to-date macbook software.

    Are these temperatures and fan speed way to high? Any reason why all of a sudden the fan would be running so much higher with TFT? Is it that much more of a resource-intensive game?
