    Hey guys, i just started(again) to play WoW on my rMBP.(13'', Mid 2014, 2.6GHz i5, 8GB's of ram, Intel Irıs 1536MB Graphics card).

    The thing is, when i begin to play WoW, the cooling fans start to work in amazing speed. And i bought my rMBP like 2 months ago and i get amazingly scared:)D) when i hear the sound of the cooling fans.

    What is the best temperature for gaming? Should i be worried about the heat?

    I have seen my temps soar to mid to high 90's while in a raid before, don't worry once it get too hot it will shut down normally around 105

    You should be happy you hear your fans. That means they are doing their job and your computer won't melt itself.

    Should your computer ever over heat, it will shut down to protect itself.

    Don't worry about it.
