    when someone says "my MBP is running hot" at quotes 90 deg C under load, what temperature is he talking about? I noticed 8 or 10 different temperatures on iStat. one at the heatsink, one at the cpu.
    which component has the critical temp to be concerned about. What is a normal range in deg celcius for that critical component.
    Yes I have read the my MBP is running way hot thread.

    Just to comment, running a simple video or processing an installation of anything, is causing the system to run at 80-90 celsius, that is not acceptable for any laptop.

    Running an installation of a program is not taxing the system.
