I have set up Windows 8 64 bit on a MacBook Air using VMWare Fusion 5 Professional.
The MacBook Air is from Oct 2012 and has an Intel Core i7 2GHz and 8 GB 1600 Mhz DDR3 RAM.
I have Windows 8 running with no other programs open but it constantly uses around 50% CPU on the Mac and the fan is running at full tilt. The VM is set up with 4GB of RAM and 2 CPU's with 2 Cores.
Is there a way to make it not overheat the Mac? Is anyone running a Windows 8 64 bit VM on a MacBook Pro or other Mac that can give me an idea if that works better?
