CPU Temperatures under Bootcamp: a real headache for gaming
Yeah, it sounds a bit edgy to me! But if you are stable, why not?
Anyway, best way to test is through a good session of gaming, for some hours. I have been perfectly stable with my -100mV but yesterday the system crashed, somehow.
Always good to learn!
@usafballer thanks for your message and thoughts!
I personally, am not so sure about it. I believe these chips can run under 100°C correctly for a certain amount of time, but it is not healthy for them to do so all the time during playing (as I was experiencing). I already know of one persons whose CPUs in MacBooks died after serious gaming with them just within 2/3 years since the computer purchase...might have been bad luck though.
At any case, you might be right but I am not willing to risk it (these are too expensive computers! ) and playing at lower temps also has the advantage of lower fan noise!
Thanks for your input. I have Mac Fans Control installed, actually fans get to 100% relatively early (around 65 degrees), but that is not quite helping against reaching 90-95°C. Does it help you keeping temperature lower?
It helps keep my temps lower, but it looks like you play more cpu heavy games.
Do you have monitor, or do you use the internal display?
I noticed that there is airflow coming down through the keyboard, so I open the lid just a bit, so the screen doesn't activate, and I have the rear end of the MacBook resting on an ssd I'm using, to keep some airflow under the Mac. I'm thinking that they are using the metal casing for cooling, since its metal, and it gets hot as the internal components heats up, so airflow ftw 😛
