    Hey guys I have the 2009 13in MBP with 2.26c2d and 9400m card.

    It seems every time I try and start typing up notes or papers, my mac starts heating up like crazy and the fans spin incessantly. This issue is fairly new and I've never had any trouble with my comp before. The only things I have running usually are safari with 2-3 tabs and two documents open that I type, but the fan starts spinning and the computer gets really hot (according to istat nano my cpu is at 175F) and I want to make sure my comp isn't about to fry.

    I don't know if this is relevant or not, but I play RTW and KOTOR on occasion.

    Also I know many of you are probably going to say search for the answer and I did, but did not find anything really substantial or how it might affect my uses on the machine.

    Your Mac is not overheating and it's not about to "fry". Macs are designed to automatically shut down to prevent damage if they truly overheat (around 105C/221F). Your temps are well within the normal operating range, as searching the forum with Google will reveal:
