    I'd take that to an apple store if I were you... prompto, especially if it is in the 14 day return window, then you might get a new one :)

    obviously over 105º C which is when the chip shuts off.

    It could be, but it MAY be something else. Just interested to hear from him if it does go over 100. But it probably is going to 105 as you said, but just making sure. My laptop gets very hot at 85-90 and has shut down in the past, and it was for a different issue. :)

    Install smcFanControl, and have it tell you hot the computer gets, then you can adjust the fans. However, I would recommend first taking it the Apple Store and getting it checked out, because it should not do that.

    The best thing to consider is to take your MBP to a local Apple retail store and tell them about the issue. If it is a hardware fault, they will either send it in for repair or if it is unrepairable, they should offer a replacement (be wary though as Apple will give you a refurbished one, not a new MBP, as I have previously experienced).

    As others have pointed out, if the temperature goes over 100 degrees celsius, it will auto shut to protect the machine. Which model do you have?
