Oh my fucking god I can't believe this shit. I'm so angry I can barely type right now. Pic related is the worst piece of technology I have ever bought in my life.
This shit OVERHEATS like a motherfucker. It gets to 90º just browsing.
I don't know what to do anymore. I've tried turning up the fans but that just makes it louder. I've read it might be a problem with Flash, but I can't just stop using it when 90% of the sites use it.
Man, fuck Apple so hard. Why is this allowed.
What are you watching that gets it to 90 degrees?
If you have multiple tabs with flash on them including a longer video and other apps and you have the thing on a bed in a warm room I can see it getting to 90.
Yes flash is a problem on the mac. It used to piss me off but I admit I had forgotten about it.
You can use extensions to force websites to load html5 where possible. For Safari this is the clicktoflash extension which is really good. For Chrome I have "html5 video for youtube".
First of all go to forums.macrumors.com to actually get answers. What are you expecting from brainwashed autists from /g? Anyways I recommend using Safari as a browser. Chrome is poorly written for macs and can cause crazy cpu usage. Just use Safari and you be golden. I got a 13" retina and never have overheating issues. I can spend 6 hours playing sc2 on it and never have any issues.
Apple notebooks tend to cram parts too closely together, especially considering they insist on using hot CPUs to begin with. It's just not possible to get sufficient cooling with that form factor.
I would just sell it and invest in something else. If you really want to keep it around for some reason, then consider underclocking the CPU. You probably won't need that much processing power anyway.
Well anything would if you put the GPU and CPU on top of each other.
Had an Air for a year, here's a tip to make them even remotely usable:
Lock the fan at 100%. Always. Do the same for all apple devices that have them.
These things are designed to be quiet and cool, the device will underclock itself before it considers turning up the fan. Don't give it the option.
>it's a diamond dozen
maybe they should just sell cooling mats
with them instead. hey its a idea.
>gets rekt resorts to calling it bait
this is what happens when one does not invest in a APU it should be manitory now for all laptops to have a APU then maybe you might be about to sick in a another ram chip. and hard drive. just saying.
>It gets to 90º just browsing.
Are you worried about the CPU, or it's uncomfortable to use?
If it's the former, you're an autist.
Go read on CPU tolerances, duty life and working temperatures.
>protip: the laptop itself, and especially some components like battery, will be obsolete much much faster than the CPU will die.
I'm getting ~70 browsing safari and a bunch of apps open. Also streaming NBA.
I have the 15 inch model which in theory should overheat more, but I get about 40C while browsing the web, on bootcamp when playing gaymens I get about 65-70C MAXIMUM, the fans doesn't even reach maximum RPM, so it's a pretty cool laptop if you know how to use it.
Your laptop is probably defective, return it to Appel and they will give you a refund or a brand new one.
I know of four sites that still use flash for video playback.
This leads me to believe that you play fucking Flash games.
You bought a Mac to play fucking Flash games.
also, enjoy your 0dayz.
>It even has a similar cooling design
Not really, the heatsink in the rMBP is paper thin. Although changing the thermal paste itself will reduce load temps by 30ºC, Apple slaps on the worst shit out of the factory.
>I can't just stop using it when 90% of the sites use it.
I removed Flash quite a while ago because it kept crashing my Firefox and I'm not really missing it.
If I wanna watch a stream or something like that which absolutely requires it I just switch over to Chrome
