    i've been encoding some video and burning to DVD on my macbook. at times the CPU temp reaches 87°C. should I be worried of this high temp damaging the laptop?

    It really depends on several things like ambient temperature, what surface you're using it on, and when you bought it (the earlier ones are known to heat up more than recent ones).

    I bought mine about a month ago, so its a fairly late model. My temperature hardly gets pass 75C at full load, but I live in a colder climate, where room temperature is between 20 - 25C.

    I recall reading a thread about a firmware update that Apple released that significantly lowered the temperatures of the C2D processors under heavy loads.

    How old is your notebook? I've had mine for about a month now, and regularly play wow + 15 other applications, and I don't think mine's ever reached 70°C (I suppose I could be wrong)!

    Here are a couple of threads that you might like to read. *shrug*

    Re-applied the thermal paste on my MacBook Pro... AMAZING results!
    my mbp 40˚f cooler!
