Jan 24, 2011 - Ive had a 15' 2010 Macbook Pro since Sep but never really used it for gaming. Heat kills components, especially hard-drives, so it's all on you to do what you feel is right for your. I click it up to 5000rpm and start the game.

Recently I've been using my brand new iMac 5k and I've been loving it! One thing that kinda bothers me though is that when I start playing a game called Total War my GPU temperature reaches up to 105 celsius and no more than that! What i find pretty funny though is that when I'm playing the game I Don't play it fullscreen, instead I play in a window and every time I tab from my game to my desktop my GPU temp drops in a blink of an eye back to 80 celsius and takes about 30 seconds from there to go back to 50 Celsius. My iMac doesn't get hot by touch though.

Mac heating up for games 2017

But after seeing so many people experience this is this GPU meant to be ran like this and last me for a long time? I have the m295x 4GB with an i7 quad core. Any suggestions? Will these temperatures be safe and will it even last me more than 5 years like my Macbook Pro has? Note: I have no lag and everything runs really smooth even when playing Total War on 5k on Ultra settings.

Very strange, I think it's a sensor problem because overheating will cause the GPU to throttle back a ton, and the fans should be ramping up (are their fans?). Try using coretemp software. I'm actually using iStat. The fans do ramp up the most I've seen it go is about 2800rpm after that the GPU goes down to 85 Celsius and back to 105 once the fans ramp back down and same process happens again.

But like I said what I find extremely odd is that as soon as I click the tab to take a look at the stats, the temperature goes down very very fast back to 70°c and then to 50°c. This issue is overhyped, there is a thread (almost 154.000 views - still counting) and the quintessence is: The gpu (only the m295x) has a dynamic clock rate that is adapted to the temps (its not a real heavy throttling like on other cpus/ gpus) and so everything still runs smooth - the clock rate adjustment is just marginally. But that seems to be sufficient. 105°C/221°F is the programmed barrier.

This video will show you how to format your internal or external HDD, SSD, or flash drive to APFS (Apple File System) in macOS High Sierra 10.13 using Disk U. How to Format a New Internal SSD in macOS High Sierra Tuesday, November 28th, 2017. A Mac’s Terminal can be used to format the drive in these cases. Hi, I have installed a brand new OWC Auro Pro X SSD into a High Sierra Macbook Pro 13, early 2015. If the other Mac isn't using High Sierra or later, choose Mac OS Extended (Journaled). Earlier versions of macOS don't mount APFS-formatted volumes. Disk Utility tries to detect the type of storage and show the appropriate format in the Format menu. Formatting ssd for mac high sierra. MacOS High Sierra: Why you can't format an internal SSD with HFS+ format. And—with macOS 10.13 High Sierra—for SSDs that are a Mac's. Sync with High Sierra, and Apple converts a boot SSD. I am about to do a fresh install of High Sierra on a new SSD. I plan to keep my external hard drives that I use for backups formatted as Mac OS Journaled. From what I have been told there is an option during the install process of High Sierra to override the default formatting of APFS to Mac OS Journaled.

The real max specification for the gpu core is 125°C/ 257°F but you won`t ever reach such high temps. Dont worry PS: Here is the above mentioned thread: (If linking isn`t allowed, a mod should erase this).

MacBook Pro:: Overheats When Playing Games? Jan 5, 2010 My top-of-the-line Macbook Pro 15' locks up after about an hour (or less) of use when playing what is usually a Source Engine based game running in Windows on Bootcamp (booting into Windows).

The screen goes black and the audio gets stuck in a loop and the game crashes. My only option is to hold down the power button.It seems of course to be caused by the GPU overheating.I can play a little longer when I have the laptop sitting on a packet of frozen spinach, sometimes peas or even chicken fillets. But I don't need to say that this is unacceptable, especially when you're 3/4 a way through a L4D2 campaign.

It's the 13 inch and is the model before the most recent one came out (4GB of RAM instead of 8GB - late 2013). From the very first day, playing a full-screen video on any site (be it YouTube, Facebook, etc) just makes the fan much louder than usual (so loud that you can almost hear it more over the video itself).

Autocad 2015 mac free trial. Thought it may have been just a thing with Flash Player being buggy, but the problem has persisted for a while now. I'm not even pushing the CPU to any limits - literally playing a full-screen video on Facebook (not even in HD) makes the fan go crazy. Just last night I tried installing Borderlands 2 and it was the same thing - FPS rate was fine, no lag, just the fan was so loud that I actually got scared for my computer and turned it off.

After closing the app and checking out the fan temperature, it was at 91c. Never happens when browsing/surfing or doing my usual work. Should I go give it back to Apple? The thing is I start university in less than a week (and hence will be traveling), so not sure if I can afford to give my laptop in to them for a long period of time (I know it should be free though since mine is a refurb item).
