    Macbook heating?

    I'm getting strange feeling that 10.5.6 update (over 10.5.5) caused all the heating problems in my new Alu Macbook 2.4 ... In the beginning I didn't even think about cranking up fans, because its body was cold. But after some time I noticed that it's hot under the screen and near all the slots at the left ... Now I use SMCFanControl and set it at 4000RPM so CPU temps are in 40's Celcius. What do you think ?

    MacBook Suggestion

    The problem is I'm from Poland, and there is little choice on that subject (upgrading macs) Well ... I've been working in Photoshop on my current Hack and I am satisfied with the speed and this macbook would be even faster I don't do any hardcore rendering, so ... And any HD movies also ran seamlessly

    MacBook Suggestion

    0.4Ghz, illuminated keaboard and more diskspace. 13inch is indeed too small for photoshop, that's why I want to plug it to 32" LCD TV

    Ram is something I can add later, upgrading cpu is far more expensive, am I right ?

    MacBook Suggestion

    I've never been using firewall on my desktop pc so I don't consider it a loss The only thing I think of now is how am I going to squeeze my 1TB into 250GB perhaps external drive is needed. Can anybody tell me how do the USB ones work ?

  11. I'm a little cofused ... There are waaaaaaaaaaaay too many tools for patching and updating ... I don't know which to use, Extension pack or ls8's, pcwiz's Universal OSx86 Installer, then there is DSDT Patcher GUI but wait ... didn't Universal OSx86 Installer do the DSDT patching ? and how about Universal OSx86 Installer patching standard kexts for specific board ??

  13. I've Got EP35-DS4 and using this method I've installed Leopard, but every now and then applications freeze for no specific reason. I can't force them to quit, restart and shut down doesn't work, I have to reset my computer. What could cause this problem ?

    Retail Leo installing

    Excuse me for not following your advice But your suggestion helped me to find an interesting thread. I made it, and installed Retail Leo using "another Asus p5w dh deluxe_ISO with Nvidia/sound support + GUI" from this thread http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?sho...114834&st=0 Everything works now, (I had to patch Audio Taruga's way) except USB Drives ... Is this ISOs problem, or something else ?
