I opened it back up and tightened screws and reconnected all connectors. Now SMCFanControl shows temps around 115-125 F when speed of fans is set to 4000 rpm's minimum. Better but is this still extremely hot for his Macbook? If I set the fans higher (6000 rpm's) it actually seems to run hotter. This case does not seem to have very good airflow. I think it vent to the back by hinge but really I can feel no airflow out the back. I vacuumed the fans and the vents when I had the case open and everything out. Maybe this is the best I can expect for this unit??? I welcome additional opinions.

Currently typing on this Macbook with temps showing 115 F and 3900 rpm's on fans.

Rather cool for a MacBook, 45 to 52°C...

Yes I guess that's correct. I thought too high. Looks like it's within a reasonable range. Thanks.

Intel macs run hotter, they can get away with it, but I wish for more cooling… Apple llikes them to last 1 to 3 years! :nothappy:
