For a few days I'm noticing the fans spinning wildly and the CPU temperature is around 65C.. I'm only doing normal browsing and the fans are at 6000RPM. Quite strange.
I have MacBook Pro mid 2010 model. I have tried to reset the SMC by holding shift+ctrl+alt+power.
It happens in OSX and in Win7 (Bootcamp).
The outside temperature in the past few days is around 33C which is a lot more than usual (summer is here:).. but still it's weird because this could only affect Mac running a bit hotter and not fan speeds being higher at some given temperature.
Sensor being faulty or fan being clogged up also can't be a reason.. only thing I see that could cause this is some fault in the controlling logic but SMC reset should have taken care of this...
Any ideas? Hmm now when the computer is completely idle the temperature shows 63C and the fans are at 3500RPM - so only a small temperature difference and 2500RPM difference in fan speed... :S The whole thing is strange.
thank you! david
