    I'm constantly running around 80 celsius degrees. And if I have my firewire interface connected it will turn the fans on.

    What are your normal temps? Right now I'm just using Chrome and spotify for listening to music. And is smcFanControl ok program to monitor temps.

    I have the better "15 version...

    It's posts like yours that makes me think about getting a cooler pad :S But people keep posting that theirs run around 50 degrees even with several programs open. What to believe.

    The fans are always on, running at a minimum of around 2000 rpm. They spin faster, as needed, when temps are sustained at higher levels.
    Multimedia such as music and movies, as well as Flash on websites, will place more demands on the CPU/GPU and increase temps. This is normal.

    Install iStat Pro to get accurate readings of your temps, among other things.
    Your temps are perfectly normal, as searching the forum with Google will reveal:

    I've been using the same laptop as you on the bed with poor ventilation using Chrome. The temp is 59c and the fans are at 2000RPM. About to play Torchlight so no doubt that will all change,

    I think all threads about temps should be instantly wastelanded. If your computer is not shutting itself off you have nothing to worry about.

    True. But I had problem with firewire. After plugin it off the computer ran 10 degrees cooler. It's just not cool to have your fans running 4000 rpm just for the light use. Yesterday I had over 80 degree temps just for Chrome, Spotify and firewire interface.

    Your computer doesn't have a discreet graphics card like ours do
