Hi, I got a MacBook late 2008 model. CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo, 2,4 GHz Memory: 2 GB Graphic card: GMA X3100 My fan speed is constantly running high. 3000-4000 rpm when just writing this post and surfing some other ordinary websites. Firefox is using about 12% cpu in the activity monitor, not much else is using CPU. When I use iphoto, photoshop, word, surf websites with flash. The macbook sounds like a jet engine http://i51.tinypic.com/n3sq6b.png When I am not surfing other websites and just writing this, the fan speed is 2700 rpm. I am a student and I don't got any money for a new macbook. But I can't live with this noise anymore. 1. Is there a possibility to fix this? 2. If I upgrade to SSD and more memory will the fan noise get better? My last resort is to sell the macbook cheap and buy a pc, but I really don't want to do that. Been a mac user for years.
