    i consider, im addicted with csgo and dota. I played all day that game but with colling pad, if i play csgo my fan will run at 1300 - 4000 rpm, and if i play dota 3500 - 5200 rpm, it will harm my macbook? (macbook 2015)

    Nope, it won't harm it. The CPU will just throttle if it's approaching toasty temperatures and you'll see some FPS drops/choppiness. Absolute worst case scenario, the system will shut down to prevent damage if it hits TJ max.

    Just use your MacBook as you want to and don't worry :)

    I had an old TiBook 800MHz G4 and I do think playing a lot of World of Warcraft (which meant its fans were on a lot) on it shortened its lifetime. After 6 yrs, it would overheat and shut down after doing just simple tasks on it for a half hour or so.

    Not on that MacBook (Intel Chipset is the most reliable, too bad not the best for gaming). Now if you said a MacBook Pro Mid 2010 or Early/Late 2011, I'd say the GPU would eventually cook itself.
