    Hello everyone,

    I know there are other threads but none answered this specific problem, which I feel is more significant than others.

    When I play World of Warcraft (or any other 3D intensive game), my core temps both spike to 88-90 Celcius. This is VERY hot and keeps the fan spinning non stop.

    I've been kind of okay with this since I can't really do much about it. I have it on a table with good airflow behind it.

    Today, while playing, I experienced the sound becoming corrupt and choppy for WoW, iTunes, and any other sounds made. I've experienced this as a symptom of a computer being too hot in the past. Would anyone agree/disagree that this is due to the heat of my Macbook?

    Does Apple have any documents that state the operating temperature ranges for the Macbook? I just don't want to destroy mine because it's oh so close to the 1 year warranty ending.

    I'd like to know this too, I have a mbp and have the same issues. What would be a temperature that we could take these back to apple and make them fix it?

    p.s. my cousin just took his macbook into apple and they announced his hard drive was french toast (literally) from the heat of the laptop and they would have to replace it.
