Hey guys! I am really worried about my 13-inch MacBook 5.1:
Lately it's become really hot all the time even though the fan has been going on max (5000-6000 rpm) the entire time.
It only has one fan but it has always been a normal temperature, and now it won't go below 67 degrees celcius.

What do I do?
QUOTE Thanks

Nothing...it's normal.

You're probably working your computer harder than you have previously...by watching internet videos, gaming, or something else.

I'm still thinking that you must be doing something different to "work it harder" than you have previously.

Like I mentioned...67C is really not that bad at all. I've seen plenty of posts (and experienced myself) where folks have reported temps in the 70's, 80's, and even above 90C.

If you absolutely-positively think that you're doing nothing different...then it's possible that your MacBook is dirty inside (fan & other areas full of dirt/fuzz). Also...if you use your computer in a warmer than usual environment (Winter vs. Summer temps for example)...the computers temps will increase.
