    Hey guys,
    I have no idea if this is normal, but my 13 inch mbp runs at about 60 Celsius with just normal usage, and up to 90 with garageband opened. It used to be around 45 normally, but not anymore. I mean, it's only a week old. Should I use fan control to up the fan to 3,000 rpms or is 2,000 good? Thanks.

    Well, it is summer and it's getting hotter. My MBP used to run around 55C and now it's at a constant 64C. Do you have AC on all the time? Ambient temperature does affect the temperature of the computer. Your fans should be fine at 2000. 60C is pretty normal for a MBP.

    Hey,
    My house is at 72 right now, but I'm actually in Houston and come to think of it, it was 104 today... I'm from Boston..big difference haha. Right now I'm at 53C with iTunes and two tabs.. Garageband goes to about 85, but iPhoto and iMovie don't really effect the temp. When it goes to 85C, my fans go up to 4,000. I think I'll stop using garageband for now..

    Don't be afraid to use programs. I get into the 90s sometimes with Final Cut Pro. Remember, it's a laptop so all the parts are inside a very small area so there's not much air circulation. I'm from Boston too! Man.. the weather's been pretty sucky here this week. It's been raining and thunderstorming everyday.

    Haha..alright thanks man I appreciate it. More or less, thunderstorms sound good right about now. We had our first day of rain in 3 weeks yesterday. Houston is crazy hot right now, Boston is calling me. Gotta make a trip back up there. Anyways, thanks for the advice man.
