I'm sure this is on here somewhere but I can't seem to find it. Basically I just bought a 2007 Macbook Pro a1226 and it runs awesome but gets very hot. It has a plug-in on it so the fans run full to help cool it off and it also shows me the temperature. Last night it got up to 167 degrees. Is this normal? If so how hot do they run before issues start to arise? Thanks guys!

Yes…we literally have hundreds of threads that have been posted over the years related to folks posting threads about how they think that their computer is running hot!;)

If you are talking 167°F…not an unusually high temp.

We've had folks post about temps in the 180's and 190's °F. If the computer gets too hot for its own good…it just shuts off automatically.
