    Good evening,
    Recently bought a MacBook Pro '13 Mid-2009. This Mac stood unused in my friend's room drawer for a couple of years.

    Finally I bought for a good price. His problem is that the TG Pro program shows that the CPU Diode is at high temperatures when I'm using in normal tasks, * not * heavy.
    I put the FAN to work at full and the temperature decreases. He already reached 210F temperature.

    When the Mac is hot to perfomace not decrease, it is not slow, so I suspect it is defective sensors. I also think that may be the thermal paste that needs to be replaced.

    Has anyone experienced this or know any way to solve?

    I am very happy with my MacBook, but I want to solve it.

    Greetings from sunny Brazil

    Have you done a clean install or at least as a minimum are you using a new user account Those temps with the fans running 100% say to me it needs a good internal clean if there's not a rouge process running
