I think it's a generally known problem that Macbooks (and iMacs) suffer from an overheating problem, for the simple reason that the built-in fans aren't the best.
However, this becomes troublesome if you are gaming on a Macbook (I know I'm crazy for doing this, but honestly the hardware of my new macbook exceeds all of my desktop pc's), and running a heavy mmorpg brings me at a constant of 95°C during gaming.
Any suggestions on how to counter this? When I'm gaming, I always use a cooling pad below my macbook, but it really doesn't seem to help much. I've downloaded a small program called LubbosFanControl which allows me to control my fanpower, but setting it to maximum power does 1) still not help that much, and 2) wear out my fans a lot faster.
Most of the heat is expelled through the keyboard of the macbook, which has already caused me to burn my fingers during gaming (yes, it got so hot I actually burnt my fingers).
I also plan to get it cleaned on the inside to get rid of any dust, but I don't think it will help the original problem.
