When I rip DVD's, CPU A gets to 90/91 C, like 198 or so F!! Is that normal!? holy ****.
That is quite hot. Is this without fans running or what?
No, the fans are running I think. (And, I meant RIPPING DVD's, not bruning) The Macbook is on the default settings from Apple, so yeah I'm sure the fans are going.
What do I do?
The fans always run, just not at full speed unless under full load.
This is quite hot, and although hotter temps are expected for dvd ripping, this sounds like grounds for a return. That's just too hot for any computer to get.
Should I call apple? or run my fans faster?
Crank that fan up.
Well I had the same problem (usually burning, playing or converting video files) when i first got my macbook pro in August. Hot as hell. I had an initial list of things that upset me about the change from pc to mac and the fan was one of em... Luckily I found a sweet lil fan adjuster. As most of you know the default fan speed is slow as a snail... 2000rpms i believe. I found a download for SMC fan control. Its super sweet. I have mine fans now maxed at 6000rpm's, dropped my temp 40degrees within 2 or 3 mins. Whats really sweet is that if you are running on battery power you can set your fans to run slower (so they don't eat up the juice) I have had some people tell me that if you run the fans to fast they may die sooner, my response...I'd rather pay $20 for a fan in a few years instead of frying my machine.

Hope this helps
I have seen the same temps with my MBP when doing a lot of heavy video editing. I now use smc fan control. It helps a lot with the high temps.
my mbp goes real high too when video editing with the 7200 rpm drive. I got the iLap to make sure I dont burn my knees...
any proof the high temps are cause for worry in the first place?
