I’m having thermal issues with my MacBook Pro 17” late 2011 model laptop I7 2.5 quad core with 16GB of RAM.
Has anyone had any thermal issues when running DAW software on this particular laptop?
Every software app I use: Protools, Logic, Cubase, Live, Maschine, Studio One, all crash if I'm not running an air conditioner in the room. Even then I can’t use too many plugins.
I think it’s the battery, as the bottom of the laptop gets very hot. I want to remove the battery, However I heard that my processor performance would be compromised.
I was thinking of also removing the DVD drive to get more air into the computer.
If anyone can help with any suggestions or solutions, I would be humbled and thankful for your time and response.
