Hello people I have a 13 inch MBP and I love playing games on it. I recently used boot camp partition so now I have a pc side to the Mac. But when I play this game, Supreme Commander Forged Alliance, it gets really laggy and then the Macs fan goes crazy, then the game freezes and it gets really annoying. Is there any way I could get a better fan for the MBP? Thanks

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

As far as I know you cannot upgrade your fan, however what you can do is buy a cooling station. It is basically a tablet looking thing with fans in it. IDK how much that will help though as I have never used one...

Try setting the fan a little fast in the mac side using SMC fan control then restart into windows. I have found that the fan will stay at the speed you set it to when switching operating systems.
