    I recently used my recovery disk on my MBP because I wanted to start out fresh. I updated everything exactly like it was before but I notice I'm running higher temps than usual.

    It's not a big deal, as it's never on my lap, just on the table. It just gets me a little paranoid.

    I'm usually running Adium, Mail, and Safari.. sometimes itunes.. Fans are usually at 1000 rpm and it gets to about 60-65C.

    Is that OK? Should I invest in a cooling pad?

    Again, I don't use this on my lap, only on my table.

    Wow! My temperatures are usually up to 60-80C and my fan speeds up to 6500 rpm. Any experts on this?? Common sense tells me if the laptop heats up to high, wouldn't some little components inside melt?? Since everything inside needs to fit inside an inch thick of Apple casing? Wouldn't it?? And heat degrades components. That's basic science!! :)
