I have an early 2012 (same as late 2011) macbook Pro and as it sits on my desk while I play Minecraft, with a browser up the fans starts spinning a lot and I can feel the heat of the computer on my hands (computer sits closed next to usb keyboard and external monitor.) It is sitting in a Speck see-through enclosure and I was wondering if that would absorb heat making it hotter? If I remove the enclosure for home use will that decrease running temperatures? This only happens when I do stuff like play minecraft (haven't tried Aperture yet). Thanks
BTW the CPU is at 90 degrees F if that helps.

90F is absolutely nothing!!!

Many folks who report being concerned about high temps in their Mac laptops report temps in the 160F - 180F range...and even these temps are normal.

Some folks even get temps of 190F+...and although these temps are getting "high"...the bottom line is...Mac laptops have sensors that will shut the computer off when things get too hot.

So 90F is really nothing to be concerned about. 90F is even below normal human body temperature of 98.6F.

p.s. Are you sure that temp isn't 90C? If so...that would make a BIG difference.

Almost positive as the computer is quiet and cool now and it say is around 40 degrees (CPU), I'm using iStat Pro to indicate this. And if these temperatures are normal I feel like one of those over concerned new parents haha. Thanks for the help.

Pretty sure that's celsius. 90 F is nominal, 90 C is definitely warmer than normal - but then, depending on how much load you had on the system at the time, it's not unheard of.

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!

Check your gpu temps as well. Maybe the cpu is relatively cool...but the gpu may be what's getting hot.
