Hi guys,

I have a mid 2014, fully decked out 15inch MBP retina. I started to watch some streams on twitch and I've noticed my MBP getting very VERY hot and the fans going full blast while watching it. I'm confused as watching on my iPad or my 2011 iMac is fine, they handle it easy. Is there any setting I have to change to solve this? Am i forgetting something?

Thanks
Derek

If you are running flash in chrome it'll cane all your resources and heat up like a beast, that is just bad coding for chrome and flash under OSX...
