    Hi,
    IS it normal that when playing a game the fans kick in on the base model macbook pro mid 2012 with the i5 and hd4000 . I am using bootcamp and playing this game:https://www.vrcworld.com/support/faq2.aspx?question=7266
    It is not getting very hot, it just stops getting hotter at a certain point and the keyboard and metal can still be touched .

    Yeah it's definitely normal for the fan to kick in. Whenever the processor is stressed and is handling a lot of data and stuff [like when playing games] the fans will turn on to keep the components of the machine cool so the heat doesn't cause damage.
