Reduce MacBook Pro Temperature


I have asked before if anyone was experiencing high temperatures with their MacBook Pro ever since patch 1.5 was released and it looks like there are a few of us that are concerned with it.

But, I am not sure if anyone has asked if there are ways to reduce the temperature. I run the SMC Fan Control app while running my SC2, but this somehow has not reduce the temperature. Before the 1.5 Patch, I was averaging less than 80 degress (Celsius) with SMC running but now it has reached between 95-97 degrees.

Why the sudden change in temperatures?

Mac support please help!

1.5.3 implemented the same CPU fix that WoW has back in 5.0.4. Forgot to add that was snuck in :)

My 2011 Imac has a noticeable drop in temperature after 1.5.3.

52 degrees Celsius pre -1.5.3 (while playing SC2 in 'high settings')

43 degrees Celsius post -1.5.3 (SC2 'high')

Thanks Bliz.
