Is it normal for my macbook to stop charging when it hits like 165 degrees Fahrenheit? It really is starting to bug me. Is there something wrong with my macbook?

smcfancontrol says 165 then it stops charging...if it goes under that it will charge.

Ok but which piece of Hardware is reaching 165 degrees Fahrenheit? Eg: Cpu, Gpu If Smc fans doesn't tell you install "Temperature Monitor" Link below

Temperature Monitor 4.8 software download - Mac OS X - VersionTracker

Then in the menu bar, it will say Cpu a:160f, or something like that, click it and a drop down menu appears, then press Shift-command-4 and select the area of the drop down box)

Yeah that is a bit higher than normal, have you cleaned out your computer fans lately?

Increase the fan speed on SMC FanControl or Buy a cooling mat link below
