If I put my CPU under full load is reaches 105C. I'm sure there is something wrong?

Here are the specs:

Mid 2012

13 inch

2.9Ghz i7

8GB 1600MHz DDR3

That's is de maximum temperature for that CPU. Not good... Other components Will suffer under that kind of ambiental conditions.

What's the ambient temperature on your room?

Not sure but it's very cool as I have the windows open. It's too hot to touch for more than 10 seconds.

That's not right.

Is your fan ramping up, if not try resetting the smc. My rMBP does not get beyond 80c when doing any heavy lifting. You're at a point where the CPU is getting over-heated is about to shut down.

I've made an appointment at the apple store. I'll see what they'll say.
Does not hurt, but chances are they will say it is normal.

There is a thread with a throttling tracking tool. I dont have it off hand but try it out. It will give you an idea if there is any issues.

My MBP, 2012, 2.9ghz, same as yours, rides at 105 celcius often. No issues on my end with running it that high...

Not according to apple. They claim the computer shuts down before heat can cause issues. The computer is "designed" to run at full for its lifetime without causing damage...This was the result of me bringing in my MBP worrying about heat like OP.

That is not correct. Not going to explain all the implications but the computer life Will diminish drastically
