    So i got WoW the other day, and whenever i play it, my fans start. But the thing is, i usually play it for about 3-4 hours at a time, and i'm worried about my fans running that long. Should i be worried? is it bad to have the fans running that long at a time? Or is this normal?

    What do you guys think?

    Expect your MB fan to be running that way a lot when applications like that are being run. Just make sure the bottom of your laptop isn't on a flat surface where the heat can be trapped. Make sure the heat has a place to go :)

    There is nothing to be worried about. If you are really concerned you can get ones of those cooling pads that go under your laptop. Just make sure you have it on a hard, flat surface (like your desk), not a soft surface (like your bed) because you are likely to accidentally block the air vents when placing your laptop on a soft surface.

    Better to ruin a $25 part that can be easily replaced compared to an expensive processor.
