    Hi,

    i understand that when pressing really hard on the little silver rocket, those 2 intel processors need air to breathe and cool down...

    Was looking for a stand, something like an iLap.
    But dont really think it would help it cool down, since an aluminum panel of some sort is helping support it?

    I was wondering what would you suggest?
    I like the idea of having the MBP lifted and to some degree, since i use an external keyboard and mouse when working most of of the time...

    Best, matt

    Just download smcfancontrol, it allows you to control the laptop's fan speed upto 6,000 rpm.

    A fan control program is a must. I use G4FanControl on my PowerBook and it keeps it so much cooler. The default Apple values made it so hot, I was afraid the inside would melt!
