    I loaded Steam and CSS last night and gave it a quick go for about 3 mins. I noticed the cooling fans running louder than usual. Ill run some tests over the next couple of days and see whats going on. My iMac is maxed out

    Is it a demanding game?
    What GPU did you get


    I have no problem with Skyrim on ultra ( 680mx)
    This iMac stays much more cool than the previous generations

    Install scmFanControl in OSX, and make a new preset with the fanspeed at about 1850-2000rpm. Then restart and enter Windows 7.
    Your fanspeed is probably a bit low in Windows7, and thus the machine heats up.
    Enjoy your machine! :)

    Yes. Computers tend to warm up, but i wouldn't expect an old school game (more or less), like CS:S warm up to this degree. It's not demanding at all to the computer. I have it maxed out with the 680MX. My computer doesn't even warm up rendering and exporting 4K Red footage...

    Yep

    You're right about that.

    Isn't CS:S a port? Could be it just wasn't built with Mac OS in mind.

    I tend not to worry about heat unless if gets HOT, but being a little paranoid certainly isn't a bad thing.

    Haha, thanks for the suggestion. Yeah, my computer was running ice cold when I was rendering and exporting footage earlier. I'll keep a closer watch.
