    Hi there, I recently bought an ACD, and it seems that my MBP is now running more hotter than ever.

    Back in time, I barely heard the fans, but now everytime I do some photoshop work, ffffff, here comes the fans, and it's really annoying to me. (Doing the same work on 2008 iMacs doesn't get me this annoying fan noise)

    Buying a good cooling pad would solve my problem? someone like this:

    They claim a 22ºC temp decrease, but...a 20db fan (850rpm) is audible? I want ZERO o nearly ZERO noise.

    The fans are audible (not very) and I'm only seeing a few degrees (celsius) decrease in the idle temps. I love the Aeolus stand, don't get me wrong, every little bit helps but 22C is not realistic.
