Hey there, after getting help a lot of times before through reading posts in this pretty neat forum, I finally registered to ask you guys and girls for help in a recent problem I've been having. So I'm running Win7 64bit on my Macbook Pro late 2010 through Bootcamp and use it only for gaming. I've been able to play CoD MW2 on medium to low settings pretty darn smoothly. Also pretty much every other Game I've played before had no problems running at all. However, I recently installed Battlefield 3 and Skyrim. Now Battlefield I threw away after playing 5 minutes since it was lagging really badly. Skyrim on the other hand, I was able to get running ok but only when turning pretty much every setting to the lowest option possible and turning off all AA and similar things. But even after taking down the resolution to the lowest possible one before letterboxing, after about 10-20 minutes my Mac gets so hot, the framerates drop so it gets near unplayable and eventually the computer puts itself into sleep mode - I assume to prevent overheating. I even installed this SMCfancontrol and turned those little turbines all the way up to like 5700 rpm but I merely got a few more minutes before the point of not being able to play. This wouldn't be an issue if I knew that this computer simply isn't able to handle this game, however I've seen multiple videos on youtube and posts online where people have been able to play it on a decent resolution and even settings turned from medium to high - and that with macbooks with weaker CPUs and less memory - no overheating issue mentioned at all. I'm kinda freakin out here - is there something wrong with my mac or what? I did try to overclock the gpu a while back, but i did so while staying closely to a guide and i didn't even turn the values up to the point they deemed safe for my graphics card. I really hope i didn't cause any permanent damage - however the program SIW says the heat issue lies within the CPU. Any help at all would be so much appreciated - I really enjoy the game and would like to play it further.
