Macbook Pro (Mid-2012) - Overheating on lowest graphics setting

Question

Hi all

 

I'm playing PoE off a Macbook Pro (Mid 2012) with a 2.9GHz dual-core i7 processor:

Less than a few minutes after I start playing, my Mac starts to get extremely hot.  I have even turned the graphics to the lowest quality and reduced the resolution.

 

I have cleaned out the fans (there was a massive dust bunny inside).

 

I have also downloaded smcFan Control for Mac.

 

I'm worried about overheating.  Has anyone else experienced this problem?  Are there any fixes?

 

Thanks guys

hello

 

I have an early 2013 MacBook pro and mine does the same.

 

Checked via Mac Games that my device meets the min spec which is does and then start up the game and then the fans kick in

 

guess even with 2 years of patches there is still a problem

 

help
