I just got my first Mac ever three days ago, Macbook Air (2011 MBA, 1.7GHz i5, 4GB RAM, 128GB). Its primary purpose is for college use, but I was hoping to be able to play some less-intensive games in situations where I don't have my desktop PC at hand (e.g. at a friend's place). I'm running Windows 7 with Bootcamp and I've played Counter-Strike: Source and League of Legends, my two main games of choice. Performance-wise, they run pretty smooth on medium settings (40-60 steady FPS). However, as the title of the thread indicates, my CPU temps are constantly at 95-100C, usually 97C pretty steadily. I can't help but be worried, since the TJ Max is 100C. (Using Core Temp to monitor temps) 1) Should I be concerned? 2) Will a cooling pad actually help? I've been considering this one.* 3) Should I consider re-applying thermal paste onto CPU?** * - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834998051&Tpk=nc1000 ** - I've never opened a laptop before in my life, and I've never applied thermal paste...the whole idea worries me, especially considering the warranty voids if I open my Macbook (I think?). I might feel more comfortable to try if a detailed guide with pics existed.
