    How much does it hurt. If you can hold your hand there for more than an instant it's normal.

    right now the cpu temp is 50 degrees Celsius but the bottom has also cooled down a lot. and also is a noise coming from the MBP normal? it kinda sounds like a fan and the rpm's are reading 2,000 for the right and left fans???

    temps are good and the fans are running at a good RPM!

    If it's anything like this... then I would get a 2nd opinion, unless your installing Windows on Parallels or VMware.

    Yeah it's normal. I think it's because the GPU is the middle of the logic board and therefore also the farthest away from the fans.

    Usually, I'd start to worrying when both cores are hit 99°C or higher
    and you don't hear either fans kicking in!!
    Honest to god, that's not a good sign!! :mad:

    Nor is it good, when you open up the machine
    and find you see more thermal compound on the processors...
    than soft Phildelphia in a carton.
