Longstory short, I have the newest macbook white with only one working fan; I have a temperature monitor. At what temperature should I panic? (At what temperature will hardware suffer?)

No its not under warranty, no I'm not going to buy another fan (no money), and yes I have a cooling pad.


Thanks for all the help!

I believe 105c is the thermal operational limit for Intel's Core 2 Duo lines.

Fans are $50, and installable if you're mechanically inclined and pay attention to detail.

From the "sound" of your post...it seems that you think that your MacBook has more than one fan...when (AFAIK) it only has one.

The fan is almost always running...so even at lower temps. it is needed. If your fan is NOT working...it needs to be replaced ASAP!
