    I'm playing WoW... I'm getting an average of 70oC-80oC on my CPU Core 1 from playing WoW. Is this normal?
    Air vent is extremely hot.

    Aprox 40mins of playing.

    For future reference, try Shift+Option+8 --> °

    And yes, those temps are to be expected when running intense games. Your Mac should have no problems regulating and dealing with them.
