Why does my MBP heats up rapidly?
After booting up, all it takes is 10 to 15 minutes to reach a "boiling temperature"! I use SMC Fan Control to monitor my fan speeds and the temperature. It shows temperatures up to 70C.
I would open up your action monitor and see if you have an high CPU usage from any of your applications or plug ins. I have the same issues with mine running flash(like youtube or netflix). I have had issues where the flash plug in took 75% of my CPU. Check that and if everything looks fine when its hot then that is not the problem and would follow mayer.
Hope it helps!
I would take the machine to the apple store and ask them to vaccum the inside and clean the vents. What happens is that the vents get clogged and the combo of that and the incorrect soder on the chips eventually leads to the chip failing. I see like 10 a week with this issue. On my MBP I vaccum the vents every few months
keep in mind an "anti-static" enviornment and vaccum is what you need. I wouldn't open it and use a regular vaccum
