I am worried that my macbook could get damaged due to the constant high heat it produces.
It idles at around 80 degrees when idling with Parallels loaded and often goes upto 90 degrees.
I changed from Parallels 6 to 7 in the hope this might help but to no avail.

I have already had a hard drive fail on me and am worried this could happen again, i am getting the blue screen of death on the windows side several times a week.

How can I cool this rig down ?

Open up your MBP and clean out any dust or dirt around the fan and vents. See the take apart instructions at iFixit: The free repair manual.
