    MBP w/ GeForce8600M (Purchased Aug09)
    Hey guys, i have a 15" Macbook Pro with the GeForce 8600M, i purchased it in august 09, and got the extended 2years on the 1yr warranty, have apple pro care aswell.

    So, here's the thing... I play WoW and my macbook heats up like crazy. Fans are maxed @ 6k constantly, and my cpu is reaching top heat of 97~celcius. on top of this, i'm not even raiding or anything, i'm just standing there doing nothing and my computer just goes to work.. this isnt what usually happens, but i feel like it has been happening slowly over the past 2 weeks.

    I was thinking of calling in tomorrow morning when i wake up and seeing what they can do.

    Have you tried resetting the SMC here altho it may be that the video card is suspect in which case this
    may be of interest.
