MacBook is overheating from idle to regular use
My macbook is at around 60 - 62 degrees Celsius at light use like web browsing and watching videos and the fan runs at the default 2000 rpm. Both the upper and lower body get uncomfortably warm to an extent that I can't touch it. Do I need to replace the fans or the heatsink?
These are the stats for 20% CPU usage but the laptop is uncomfortably warm.....correction hot at the top and I can hardly touch the bottom!
It's super hot around the processor and the heatsink at the bottom and the whole top is quite warm.
- fan: 4945 rpm
- ambient: 52 degrees
- battery max: 43 degrees
- CPU core 1: 74 degrees
- CPU core 2: 71 degrees
- CPU PECI: 74.1 degrees
- CPU proximity: 63.5 degrees
- GPU PECI: 69 degrees
- heatsink proximity: 53.6 degrees
- memory proximity: 53.1 degrees
- memory slot: 57.1 degrees
- palm rest: 41.1 degrees
- pct die: 73 degrees
- hdd: 46 degrees
Apps open in the background/everything minimized/ max cpu usage 20%:
- Safari (had no web pages open)
- app store
And when i closed all the apps without shutting down the CPU temp remained the same but the fan came down to 2000 RPM
Is this a good question?
