    just wondering what my temps should be around with the cpu when playing wow... The CPU with the settings maxed out are 81C and the heatsink is 64C.. Is this too high? Just not too sure.. sorry for the newb question and if I bothered anyone. This is the top 15 in model at 2.3GHz for 2011 with the 500gb @7200rpm.

    Install iStat Pro to get accurate readings of your temps, among other things

    If temps get too high, your Mac will simply shut down. Your temps are perfectly normal, as searching the forum with Google will reveal:
