cooling MacBook air

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

i have expanded my search for a way to cool my mac:

My macbook air 2014 keeps on getting up to around 100c when doing some light gaming (or using imovie and other stuff like that)

is there any (yes any) way that i can keep it cool?

You could try something like this: https://svalt.com/

 

To use it, you will need an external monitor and a keyboard/mouse. 

 

I looked at the ifixit teardown and don't really see a better way of cooling the 2014 MBA. It has a tiny heatpipe that goes to a single blower fan on the rear. You could try to blow the fan out, but that won't prevent 100C temps.

I could work with that, thanks!

but is it worth it?

I own a macbook air, and I had a few problems with cooling. I used Mac Fan Control to manually turn it up whenever I knew I was ding something intensive, and I blew out as much dust as possible. other than that, there isnt a lot you can do. openig up newer macbook airs is a pain
