Hello all. This is my first time signing up for Macrumors so just bear with me. My mac has been really hot and noisy these days. When playing games (minecraft, League of legends), I always have this awful fan noise running at 6200Rpm. My friends all have the same mac but they don't even make a sound when they play games. During class, only my computer is loud and it embarrasses me. I never had a overheat shutdown before though. Why am I targeted with this problem? I've tried almost everything I could find. Some of them are listed here: SMC reset PRAM reset Cleaning dust inside Getting fan control apps quitting intense apps when playing activity monitor Freeing up space (freed up almost 100 gb) Virus scan (2 viruses, deleted them (clamxav)) Don't want to give my mac to them as I heard they do nothing to help. I would very much appreciate it if you could reply anything that would help me. Please don't be like, "theres nothing you can do about it. Deal with it," because I kinda already know that. Thank you! Computer specs: MacBook Pro 13-inch, Early 2011 Processor 2.3 GHz Intel Core i5 Memory 4 GB 1333 MHz DDR3 Graphics Intel HD Graphics 3000 384 MB Software OS X 10.9.2 (13C64) 320GB sata disk I might be getting a ram upgrade from 4gb to 8gb. Is it worth it?
