    What are you doing on your computer?
    Temps will vary widely depending on what you are doing

    transferring files via FW 800 from old iMac to new MBP like folders varying in size from 5 gb to like 20 gb. Also how many fans does the 13 inch MBP have?

    After these files finish copying (5 minutes) I will restart it because I remember last time I used fan control it sped my iMacs fan to max and the CPU temps went sky rocketing for no reason to like 80 degrees.

    Mine seems to run at around 70 whenever I play videos on youtube, almost every time. It doesnt seem to cool down after I have stopped either. The metal is almost so hot on one side that I would burn my fingers if I left them there too long.

    Mine runs at around 55 degrees celcius doing normal tasks like web-browsing, word processing, etc., but shoots up to around 80 when video encoding or playing graphics-intensive games. smcFanControl tells me the default fan speed is around 2000 rpm and goes up to about 4000 rpm when I'm running processor-intensive apps.
