    Hi, I've received my MBP WTB 15 (Radeon 455, i7 2.7) and found out that coolers doesn't work properly.
    While I'm watching videos via chrome (or do daily work) temperature rises to 66 - 70 C and coolers work on 2150 RPM in totally silence.
    Has anyone the same problem ?

    That's pretty normal. Last week we tested a friends MBP 15 (2016) pretty much same temperature.
    Intensive tasks it was pushing 90c.
    Keep in mind they are very thin laptops with powerful hardware. It's going to get hot

    I haven't pushed my CPU long enough but when I ran the Unigine Heaven benchmark, the GPU was close to 80C before the fans started ramping up. They were just audible and temps started heading back into the mid 70's. Seems the cooling system is designed to keep things as silent as possible but well up to the task of keeping temps under control.

    Where is the problem? Your CPU is far from its thermal threshold, so why should the fans kick in?

    Please search the forum, I've been on here since 2008 and there hasn't been a day where a thread/post about temperatures hasn't popped up. You'll find a few thousand results on this subforum if you search for "heat" or "temperature".

    Your temps are perfectly normal and nothing to worry about, your computer does not have a problem.

    Get rid of your monitoring software, all it does is cause needless worry over something you have no control on.

    Your computer is a tool, much like a hammer or screwdriver, it's meant to be used, it doesn't need monitoring or babying.

    Perfectly understandable that OP asks the question with the newly launched device to ensure its normal before return period ends.

    I'd do the same.
