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.





I know enough to be dangerous

Install 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.
