    This can't be good.. Any ideas what could be going wrong? Here are some temperatures:

    CPU A: 75C/167F
    GPU Diode: 75C/167F
    GPU Heatsink: 67C/153F
    Heatsink A: 62C/144F
    Heatsink B: 47C/117F
    Enclosure Bottom: 41C/106F :ugh:
    Memory Control: 45C/113F
    Airport Card: 45C/113F

    Theres no way this can be normal, is there? It seems really shitty.

    HALP :sadwavey:

    or what programs are you running? I find that sometime java based apps will do that to my Macbook. Run Activity Monitor and see if there's anything chewing up a lot of cpu cycles, and if there is end the app and see if the temps start to come down. Heat, btw, is my biggest complaint with the MBPs. It seems like the aluminum casing soaks up the heat and makes the palmrest get pretty warm.

    I usualy rest it in between my 2 legs, so that the bottom isnt on anything.. hoping to cool it off.

    Photoshop could be the culprit. I'd imagine that it could be pretty cpu intensive...

    Those look pretty normal to me. When I'm running Aperture, it gets really hot.

    Right now just surfing the web I'm getting:
    119
    140
    121
    117
    104
    96
    117
    130

    In the same order as you have yours above. Its not as hot as yours, but I'm not doing much right now. When working on Aperture, those temps easily hit the 160-180 degree range for the processors and heatsinks.
