    Hello everyone, please do you know if it is normal that the following keys get hot: CAPS LOCK, SHIFT, Fn, CONTROL.

    This is a late 2008 macbook white

    I've my smsfancontrol at 2500 at the moment

    And those key's are hotter than the rest.

    Is that normal?

    Thanks for the Help!

    what's under those keys that might get it hot?

    That's the side of the computer where the Airport Card is.

    Your iStat temperatures are normal, so I wouldn't really worry. If you see your Airport Card temps, that explains the warmth under those keys the best, seen here for placement: http://s1.guide-images.ifixit.com/igi/knN1ZtMi4WrVHREa.large

    In the image linked, the Airport card is the bit with the three wires screwed to it, just above the left-hand DIMM slot.
