    Sounds like your system is no longer needing to use the page file on the hard drive so it doesn't have to spin as much or create as much heat. Good on you, your extra memory has improved the function of your computer.

    Really? By far the hottest place on my MBP is around the hard drive (which is still relatively cool), and it's hardly being used...

    When a hard drive is being as swap for extended periods of time it gets hot. Same idea when you read/write to the drive for a long time.
