    Heatproblem Macbook Air 11.6"

    Hi, I bought the MBA in november 2010, but it is only the last week that the heat has been excessive. The usage of the machine have been the same all along, so why all of a sudden does the overheating happen? And do you guys trust the smcFanControl? And the Mackeeper? What should I do, try to turn it on to get a new one? What is the reason for the overheating (all of a sudden)? Thanks!

    OP thinks 52 C is excessive?!

    Why wouldn't we? iStatMenus reports the same stats.

    I suggest installing iStatMenus, you'll notice that the temps increase when you CPU is running at max load. That will also report temps, anything approaching 100C is something to worry about.
