    Hi there people. I just got my first macbook. It´s the new Retina 15".
    But i have a huge problem with it? I have owned for a week now and it seems to overheat when i run a game such as Dirt2, WoW, Limbo etc. And the FPS doesn´t go higher then 11 at all. Stuck there all the time. Even if i pick the lowest of graphics settings it doesn´t improve the FPS. This frustrates me alot. I did play a little Dirt 2, and it ran well but suddenly the mac just won´t let me play games.

    I have unchecked and checked automatic graphic switching for CPU/GPU graphics.
    Any idea of this at all?

    This. ^^

    If that doesn't work, make a genius bar appointment and have them look at it. I play some games that require far more resources than those you listed and I haven't experienced any of the same issues and get an average of 30-40 frame rates in bootcamp and higher in native clients. Zero overheating here as well.

    I keep seeing people saying to reset smc. How do you do this?
