I was wondering could i cool down my macbook black by taking off the cd-drive. How hard is it to remove it? Will there be any erros when i start the computer without cd-drive? I've opened the case many times and cleaned it and i also know what kind of softwares i am using. Still the computer gets very hot (fan start to spin fast) with light load. The best scenario would be that you could install new fan to replace the cd-drive PS i know that the cd-drive is not heating up the computer but there would be much more space for air circulation.
