Since 4.3.4 my MacBook Pro has been overheating like crazy when running WoW. It is taking up considerably more CPU power than before.

I've deleted cache and WTF/interface folders... still the same results.

Any ideas? Thank you.

part of your problem, cap your fps no higher then 60ps max, although being a macbook, i'd suggest 40fps cap. you could be seeing an issue from working it at max load until it overheats, then throttles down.

On that note, being that these are macbooks you've both had/used a while, you may want to consider getting them taken to an apple genius bar and cleaned out. by now they probalby have dogs cats and dust living in there, clogging up airflow, greatly contributing to heat factors.

this guys thread can give you some hints about that
