I have been troubleshooting an issue with Windows for about a year now. I installed 8.1 Pro on my 2014 15" rMBP and it ran incredibly hot. My fans were constantly running and blowing hot air out of the machine, obviously. I thought it might be a bootcamp issue, formatted my drive, installed OS X fresh, installed 8.1 fresh, made sure not too many apps are coming up at startup, pretty much everything you can imagine to keep the processes to a minimum. Still though, the fans are going like crazy. Windows forums are no help, they told me to turn off un-needed processes, which I already did, then they said that it was a faulty issue with MacBooks running Bootcamp can only access the better graphics, but that doesn't make the machine run hot in OS X. I was curious if the upgrade to 10 pro would help, did that, I like the system better than 8.1, but it is still crazy hot! I noticed that my girlfriend's HP Pavilion was running hot on 8.1 as well, updated hers to 10 pro, made sure processes were at a minimum, and even without running any apps at all, hers runs super hot as well. What is going on? When I run OS X my battery lasts for an incredible amount of time even while running the better graphics card, but bootcamp with 10 pro only lasts about 2 hours tops. Also the HP only lasts for about 1.5 hours. Any ideas?? I can send screen shots of whatever to help solve the issues.
