    I have recently bought a 2012 non-Retina MBP which is mainly used for work, web etc. but I sometimes use it for playing Guild Wars 2 in BootCamp. Whilst gaming I use Lubbo's MacBook Pro Fan Control to turn the fans to full and CPUID Hardware Monitor to keep an eye on temperatures. The temperatures usually max about 95 degrees C on CPU cores 1-4 and the "Package". I have previously recorded maximums of 100 degrees C before i started using a Cooling Pad. This occurs with the fans both running at full speed and with a cooling pad under the laptop.

    I am running the game at the setting chosen using Auto Detection.

    Is this normal for this laptop?

    Is it likely to cause any harm?

    I have noticed that as soon as I quit the game temperatures decrease rapidly and the fan speeds quickly drop to 2000 or lower.

    It's normal. The computer will shut down before it gets to the point of overheating.
