Hey guys,

Whenever I play Football Manager on my macbook pro, after about 20 minutes the fan starts to kick and make some really loud noise. I've read in places that this is normal and it's not a problem as the fans are kicking in to keep the macbook cool. Is that true?

Thanks in advance

Keeping it cool is what the fan is for and it's not uncommon for Apple products to get very hot.

Hurrrrrr, of course that's why a fan would turn on. But I mean.. Mac. Lol.

Yep, that's normal. Whenvever I used to play Starcraft mine would after 20 minutes or so. I usually put an ice pack wrapped in a blanket under it though.

all recent Apple computers have temperature sensors throughout them, which are used to keep the fans at the precise correct speed for optimum cooling to power consumption. If you push the computer harder (by playing games for example), the fans will run faster.

edit: and I play Skyrim on full settings at 1080p from my macbook pro, the'yre decent for gaming as far as non-gaming laptops go, you just need to dualboot windows.

Macs are useless at running games, and thus need exorbitant cooling systems to prevent their precious, no doubt chrome-lined and Viatnamese slave child polished innards from melting into a gloop that closer resembles their actual value as general computing tools.

But they're ace at running production programs, his fault for trying to play games on one.

Indeed, that's why I specified 'general computing'.

"Football Manager"? That doesn't sound like it's Apple-endorsed and gives them enough revenue so it probably isn't compatible with your Macbook. What you need is "iFootball". In fact, you should probably get off this website until Apple gets more involved otherwise you could see more issues arise, especially if you're not using Safari.

That's what I got a macbook for, to run Logic Pro and Pro Tools on. I just put FM12 on it so I could have something to do when i'm not producing music.

I don't understand that one. I've had loads of image editors, video editors, 3d programs, music recording software run perfectly fine on Windows. I can't for the life of me see any improvement by getting an Apple computer, especially for an extra grand or on the price.

Macbook Pros just run really hot in general. When I'm gaming for a while it pretty much heats up my room. As long as you're within the operating temperature range you'll be fine.

Unless the loud sound you're describing sounds like something's obstructing the fans...

I don't think anythings obstructing the fans. It runs fine normally, it's just when I play FM on it the fan cranks up. How do I check it's running in the right temperature range/what is a good temperature for it to be running at?

You don't really need to, it should shut itself down before it gets anywhere near hot enough to damage itself.

Lovely. Looks like the answer is it's not a problem, just the fans doing their job. Thanks guys

if you want to see the temperatures, download iStat Pro. it's a free widget that shows all sorts of stats, including temperature. There's an automatic shutdown if it overheats anyway though so it's not something you really need to monitor. Mine tends to run between 60C and 90C on the CPU.

Apparently the internal operating temperature is meant to stay within 30 and 90 degrees celsius, with slight variation depending on your own machine.
#27
If the program is CPU intensive, the fans will increase their RPM's. Download smcFanControl or iStat Pro, in which you can monitor internal temps and fan speeds.

It depends on the level of technical use. The performance is not the issue. But rather, OSX has some built-in features that becomes very useful and integrates much better with a workstation setup than Windows. A complex audio setup, for example, may require global MIDI over LAN, which is integrated in OSX but not Windows. CoreAudio is native in OSX whereas you'd have to install ASIO in Windows. For graphics, OSX has built-in utilities for things like color calibration. These are just a few examples of key utilities that Windows just don't have and makes it much easier to deal with on a professional level.

In pure hardware numbers, a PC would have the best value, but it is utterly stupid to judge only by these numbers, and is precisely why most Windows users are still clueless. For example, a 27" iMac may seem unreasonably expensive based on CPU/memory until you take into account its extremely high resolution, which makes a professional workflow much more efficient. There are only a few monitors out there with the same resolution and the total cost would be around the same neighborhood.

Also, a Mac comes with a lot of decent built-in software. For a casual computer user, an $800 Mac Mini + monitor/peripherals has everything you need, whether it's Garageband or Mail or iLife suite. Buying these things separately on a Windows machine would bring up the cost to around the same area. And while a Mac can experience this problem, "PC Rot" stems from an inherent flaw in Windows' registry system.

At the end of the day, I like the physical look, feel, and UI of OSX over a PC, even though I have both. I have no problem paying more for it, especially when I have to work on it all day.
