    hey guys i was just wondering how hot your temperature gets when you are running skype. my fans go to 6200 rpms and the temp stays around 80 degrees Celsius. Can someone please let me know if this is what it should be, or if its too hot? Thanks in advance.

    it depends, In a normal phonecall, my temps are normal (50-60 C) but when I do video conference, I get like 65 C, but never reached 80 C.

    yea it is a video call... does anyone recommend anything to cool it down? i am running smc at 3000 by default but obviously skype pushes the fans to 6200
