    Hi there...

    I'm the lucky owner of my very own Macbook Pro (Late 2008).

    The specs are:

    2,53ghz
    4gb ram
    9600M GT

    On a typical day my GPU is about 72 degrees (celcius) just when its doing nothing but ordenairy windows tasks, like surfin' macrumors.com.

    Does anyone know if this is all right? I think its quite warm and I dont experience this when using OSX10.6.

    Right now I'm using Windows 7 Pro with standard Bootcamp 3.1 drivers except for an updated Nvidia driver 197.16 which I believe is the newest..

    Also, I'm gettin' quite tired of hearing the fans when I'm barely using the mac...

    Great Ideas, anyone?

    Windows always runs hot on a Mac computer. When I boot into Windows 7 on my Mac, the fans speed up and it gets very hot...but it's normal.
