    Rendering too hot! (100 Celsius)

    KrabbyPattified Level 1

      Hi, I've been looking for answers all over the internet but can't seem to find it.


      My project has an estimated render time of 1hr, and the i7 CPU on my 2013 MacBook Pro is constantly around 100 Celsius.

      This is too hot for comfort, and I'm already using SMC Fan Control (i hear the fans blasting). How can I cool down my CPU?


      Does increasing/decreasing allowable RAM help?


      I'd like it to run no higher than 85 Celsius, preferably 75 Celsius.
