MacBook Pro Retina late 2012 overheating

Hi, my macbook pro retina a1425 (late 2012) model is overheating a lot.

By just browsing the internet it shows 42 celcius. And while using a tool or app it is raising to 55 celcius. and above 60 celcius it shuts down completely.

I am using SMCfancontrol to fix this problem, but it is not always helping.

Is it normal for a macbook pro retina to shutdown at 70 celcius?

There is no waterdamage at all and it is still the orginal macbook pro retina.

btw. I already put a new thermal paste but that is also not helping.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

It shuts also down when running apple hardware test.

I can feel the heat from the body of the macbook.


Have you ever had any vide issues?
