    Edit: Sorry, wrong thread. Moving my post to the bug reporting thread. Feel free to delete this.
    in general it's good, but i've seen a cpu usage increase about 20% and this boosts up the cpu temp up to 84ªc

    using mid2010 white macbook the last one, with 8gb ram
    I don't know if this helps any, but the opening cinematics for original WoW up through Wrath do work for me in the 64-bit client.

    That's because those cinematics use the old video codec format. The new in-game cinematics use a different format that there is no external player for on either platform (OS X or Windows). And as the 64-bit client hasn't been coded with that player built in (or at least not correctly yet), it crashes when trying to view them (thus they're disabled).
    The cinematic scenes seem to be working now as of 64-bit build 4.3.4.15595. I wasn't able to test all of them, but the scenes between each Dragon Soul boss are now definitely working when they were not in the previous build. At least, they are on my hunter.

    Might want to edit that in the list of known issues in the various 64-bit threads.
