Hey guys. i've recently purchased a macbook 2014. its an i7 Quad Core 2.2GHz 16GB Ram and Intel Iris Pro 1536 MB graphics which is mainly for design and editing. I just wanted to know what temperature my laptop should be at when gaming. i only play CS:GO on minimum settings with a lowered res and it sits at around 55 degrees celcius (SMC Fan control). if i touch the above the keyboard it is hot. Should I be worried or is this normal. also the fan speed is 3038rpm. are there anyways to reduce temperatures. thanks
I've done 3d rendering for 14 hours straight using coca cola cans and room fan as heat spreader many times and the laptop would become VERY hot. The macbook is still doing good as my cpu never reached 70C. As long as the exhaust slots (under the screen hinges) are not stuck with dust, you should be fine!
