    Anyone see this? My 8 month old 2.33Ghz MBP, runs just fine at normal temperatures.

    Fire up a CPU intensive task, such as World of Warcraft or VMWare Fusion, and the temp will climb to >65c and both fans run at 6000rpm. Takes about 5 minutes at 6000 rpm before the network connection quits.

    Most times the "network" will lock. Does not matter if hard-wire Ethernet is being used or wireless, the network connection locks and no net traffic in or out. The only way to recover is a reboot.

    Thoughts? Motherboard? I dread the idea of sending this to Apple based on the horror stories here. Note: Running latest everything as far as updates/patches, etc.

    Thanks

    65C isn't really that hot. Many MBPs (and my MB) go into the low 80s on full tilt. You may have a mobo problem.
