    I'm new to mac. I'm the proud owner of a MBP and I must say its a wonderful piece of equipment.
    I've installed bootcamp, and windows XP just to see how it runs a few games.
    Bioshock WOW!
    Moh: Airborne WOW!

    Its amazing, but the TEMP keeps rising and the fans are working like crazy.
    How can I control the temp on a mac with windows?
    I've tried to install MBM 5, the same i use on my PC, but I dunno which motherboard to configure on MBM.

    Another thing, is a laptop cooler an effective measure? or just another marketing product?

    So only overheats when you run games or generally always?

    use smcFanControl in OS X. Set the fan speed, when you restart into windows, the fan speed will stay at what you set in OS X.
