Mac running hot after patch 1.5.XX

Mac Technical Support
Hey Blizzard,

My computer (15 inch. MacbookPro early 2011) has been running hotter than usual when running SC2 since patch 1.5 (close to 100°C compared to 75°C previously). This make the case almost burning to the touch. Is this a known issue? I usually run the game on the lowest settings and had set the frames to 60 max through variables.txt.

Anyways to fix this? I have been using a cooling station to reduce the heat, but would like a more stable solution.

Thanks for any help!
