I'm having a similar issue with a 2011 13" MBP8,1 (2.7Ghz i7 CPU and HD3000 graphics), and to me it's pretty certain that it's provoked by video-intensive operations. Curiously, Hardware Monitor showed temperatures in the 70C range, quite far from the 90+C temperatures I've already seen while running big compile jobs. I removed the bottom plate and removed ...

This is a design feature documented by Apple. You need to cool your Mac and the processor can then speed up again and do the work you want. See this post on ideas for cooling while in clamshell mode. Any reason not to run my Macbook Pro upside-down in clamshell mode? Open the clamshell and make sure there is good ventilation and you are not blocking the ...

I have adapted DDC-CI-Tools for the command line: https://github.com/kfix/ddcctl Try running ddcctl -d 1 -b ? to test whether your Dell monitor's brightness can be polled. For example, I do this on my Mac Mini to increase my DisplayPort monitor's brightness by 5 "ticks" (the scale varies from monitor mfg/model): $ ddcctl -d 1 -b ? -b 5+ 2015-06-19 ...

The reason you are seeing the symptopms present when you conntect an ethernet adapter to the TB port and not when you connect a monitor to the TB port has to do with what is being passed over the TB cable. TB multiplexes at least 2 signals over the same connection. In this case, video and PCIe. Yes, bascially the same PCIe bus that you would find looking ...

Try connecting a shielded/braided USB cable between the USB dongle and the USB port. This type of problem is often caused by electrical noise between the ports (generated by USB 3 or thunderbolt circuitry), using a shielded cable helps to absorb the high frequencies.

You can run only 2 external monitors. If you want you can also run the MacBook Pro monitor, achieving in this way the 3 monitors configuration. The only way to run 3 external monitors is to use an external graphic card to connect the third monitor. This answer comes from personal experience and Apple technical details. I've the same model and I've tested ...

No. You can't connect a Thunderbolt display to it. No adapter has ever been created to connect Thunderbolt devices to USB 3 (what the PS4 has). The performance would be horrendous and not usable even if one was ever made.

The problem has nothing to do with the mouse's nano USB receiver or the Thunderbolt Ethernet adaptor, and everything to do with the Thunderbolt port next to the USB port. If you are running Windows on your Mac the Thunderbolt ports are not plug-and-play therefore you can plug a device into the Thunderbolt port and the mouse still works fine, however once ...

Apple does not support Display Port daisy chaining. Using Thunderbolt screens, this would work, and because the Apple screen is a Thunderbolt screen, that works. The fact that Windows supports DP daisy chaining, does not mean that Apple does this intentionally to force users to buy their monitor. So... Never attribute to malice that which is adequately ...

This is answered at Apple Macbook Dual Monitor MST already. Apple is not "intentionally limiting" anything. They simply didn't add MST support to OS X because their hardware doesn't need it. The physical Mini DisplayPort connector on your Mac can operate in two modes, one is DisplayPort itself. In this mode, you can connect a single 4K 60 Hz monitor to your ...
