MacBook Pro Overheating Issues Escalate Significantly

On the Something Awful forums, users recently shared a makeshift fix for MacBook Pros that were running too hot. It appears that an excessive application of thermal paste was causing poor heat dissipation.

Following the posting of an image from an Apple technical guide on the forums, Apple’s legal department quickly issued a cease and desist letter to Something Awful.

This development isn’t particularly shocking. Consequently, MacBook Pro users might find themselves dealing with the thermal paste issue on their own.
