    Hey guys,
    So I use my MBP for 2 hours, and it's about 50C. If I start playing a game of online monopoly, it was fine at 57C, but in a flash went up to 96C. What's wrong here? I was playing for an hour, maybe two. My fans went from 2,000 to 6,000...

    Nothing is wrong. By the temperature increase I'd say your game of online monopoly is probably a Flash program, which are quite processor intensive by nature and will shoot your temperatures up (and fans to keep the computer from overheating).

    I assume monopoly online is Flash based... If so, you are experiencing the scorchy goodness of Flash on a Mac. Normal.
