Hey everyone,

I have a MBP 15" that I mainly use for school stuff, however I also play Starcraft 2 on it (the only game I have installed) and when I do, it gets very very hot. I have a HeatShift cooling pad, but it still feels very hot to the touch in the left hand corner in the area above the esc - f3 keys. THis got me thinking, should I install SMC fan control and manually set it to high when I play games, or would that be a bad idea? How bad is it for the computer to be that hot? Do you guys think the cooling pad is enough, or would doubling up with SMC be a good idea?

Thank you
