So I bought a used Macbook Pro and decided to go with the one with a 2.8 GHz Core 2 Duo instead of the i5 CPU and am regretting it dearly. I wanted something with a kick in GPU power for some casual gaming, which it can handle very well... for about 30 minutes So while this Mac is running cool, the gaming performance is great. I can run Starcraft 2 on Medium/High settings and it looks great and runs well, but that all changes within 30 minutes just from being powered on. Once the temperature gets to a certain point the performance becomes terrible. NEVER set your Mac to high performance mode on a Macbook Pro with the Core 2 Duo because even when you're not playing games but just simply browsing the web, the GPU burns through god knows what and within 30 minutes of simply being powered on, this thing will over heat and slow the hell down. So I opened up the case, praying to god that the issue was just a bunch of dust clogging the fan exhaust but no, just noticed the 2 tiny fans which are a complete joke in terms of how they remove heat from the circuit board. At this point I'm wondering why Apple even bothered to include a dedicated GPU that'll overheat by simply being powered on for more than 30 minutes. Now I'm considering to remove the DVD drive and maybe try to hack together a massive compact cooling system to blow air out through the CD tray in the hopes of repairing this abomination of engineering. This only begs the question, I love OS X and hate Windows with a burning passion, but is this how ALL Macbook Pro's are constructed?? Is high performance mode merely a joke to cause excessive heat and slow down your Mac and use more power at the same time?!?! WTF were they thinking?? My only solution unless someone has some advice is to hack the hell out of this thing by installing some 3rd party hardware in the hopes that I can get some more proper airflow because seriously, after inspecting the guts of this machine it's atrocious. Is there software that could put the fan speed on super high speeds? Would I be better off booting into Windows exclusively for Starcraft II and other gaming?
