    Default w00t!! first live audio dropout

    ok, so not something to shout about, lol, and it was on my net show. but yeah, now i've seen it. only had software stutters up until a few months ago when i went tweak happy, and now full on fuck over.

    BUT this was pure heat related, once i'd stopped everything i opened up realtemp and the cpu temp was reading over 90c, almost hot enough to make a cuppa but i have no scones

    gonna either invest in a better under laptop fan/stand thing, or a liquid cooling system - because it sounds more awesome and fun to install.

    Bluetooth

    I wouldn't recommend a bigger internal fan, the airflow is cruddy enough in a lappy, trying to force more air can actually worsen the flow and make things hotter. You should look at a cooling stand (one tries to pull air away from the stand, not force it at the computer).

    +1 to pilmat

    Internal fans just get louder and don't make a difference. Get a cooling stand, it fixed the problem when I struggled with heat problems pre-MBP
