    Sometimes my MBP 2017 gets really warm for no apparent reason.. not even running any resource intensive application. Fans go full speed too. Then I have to close every application including Chrome. Wait a few minutes for it to cool down. And then start using it again. When I check apps using significant energy, Chrome seems to have the highest energy impact most of the time.

    Its only a 5 month old MBP.

    What do I do?

    Try Safari on the same sites and report back.

    As above chrome is very poorly coded for macs and causes all sorts of battery and heat issues because of it, especially if it’s on sites showing flash video also poorly optimised for macs.

    Use a browser other than Chrome. The answer is that simple.

    Also, when it's running hot or the fans ramp up -- open Activity Monitor and see what's hogging the CPU usage.
