The very first MacBook was released back in 2006, which was of course nothing if we compare to the latest MacBook Pro or MacBook Air. From hardware to software, everything is changed and improved that one can never imagine. Over time, MacBook has made its position in the market, mostly in the designing and businesses, where people use Mac to edit videos, pictures, work on excel, etc. Though it still lacks certain capabilities when it comes to gaming, and that’s why MacBook is not recommended for gaming.
Following the same many MacBook users are raising questions such as why is my MacBook Pro so hot? How can I keep my MacBook Pro cool while gaming? Apple uses an Aluminum enclosure in the MacBook Pro, and Aluminum gets easily hot if the fans are not working well or you’re using some heavy applications concurrently. To some extent, the built-in fans control and dissipate the heat from the dedicated vents.
The reason behind MacBook Pro being quiet is their fans operate slow, and still maintains the internal temperature correctly. To overcome this I’ve seen many people questions such as are cooling pads for MacBook effective? Is it bad if my MacBook Pro gets hot? Well, the best cooling pads for MacBook could lower down the heat to some extent, but still, if your MacBook Pro is overheating and you don’t feel good about it, refer to our detailed tutorial on how do I cool down my MacBook Pro?
Conclusively, when the MacBook is placed on the Cooling Pads, it almost removes the overheating issue, though you cannot take the cooling pad everywhere. Therefore, try to fix the overheating issues on MacBook, if the machine is catching heat during normal usage. And it’s obvious for MacBook to throw some hot air while Editing Videos, or using multiple applications at the same time.
What if MacBook Pro overheats?
Continuously using the MacBook while it overheats, could damage the internal parts such as Logic Board, Hard Drive, Keyboard, or anything. Instead of spending money in replacing the damaged parts, why not spend a little on cooling pads and save yourself the trouble.
