Hi All,

 

I have just installed Windows 7 on my 2011 Macbook.

 

My laptop seems to be running hotter and I can hear the fan a lot more than I used to, I could be wrong.

 

Are there any bootcamp users able to comment.

 

I have accidentally deleted the OSX partition so I cant boot back into OSX to check what Mac reports.

 

Any input would be great.

 

regards

 

John

Install Macs Fan Control (https://www.crystalidea.com/macs-fan-control). Its available for both Windows and Mac. It will allow to get some idea of whats going on with your fans and temperature sensors.

 

You probably have a bunch of stuff running in W7 that doesn't need to be there as well, but thats a different set of problems.

Having noticed a similar thing in the past, it seems Windows does a lot more background processing than OS X. System updates, virus scanning etc are all quite CPU intensive so up the temp, particularly on a laptop.

Thanks for the replys, interestingly the temp has gone from 95ish degrees running windows 7 to 55-60 deg once upgraded to Windows 10.

 

Macs fan control is a great little program, 

 

Thanks for the reply's and the sanity check.
