So my Macbook Pro from 2009 runs everything great, but every now and then I'd really like to play some Starcraft II. 2.8 GHz CPU and 512 MB dedicated card theoretically should run it just fine, but when I run the game my Macbook pro temperature gets to 127 degrees Celsius. So the game goes from running very well on medium/high settings to running very jittery due to the overheating. So because the Macbook pro chassis is ultra snug, the bottom of the macbook pro itself pretty much serves as a giant heat sink. And so I did a little experiment, I used a giant fan from Walmart like this: And so that worked very well and I managed to get the temperature from 127C degrees Celsius down to 100C. I put the laptop on top of the fan laying face down so hot air would get sucked out of the laptop. But in order to run the game on my hardware's full potential I need to get the temperature down to at most 85C. I'm willing to go with an industrial strength steel fan to play some Starcraft II but I've heard stories that the Cooler master X2 pad worked on for laptops that had all fans completely broken: I'm also hearing that this fan runs "very quiet", but I highly doubt that "very quiet" can cool off 127 degrees Celsius down to 85C Any ideas what fan I could invest in for gaming? Buying a new Macbook Pro is out of the question until the new intel Broadwell chips are released at the end of the year.
