Any Mac LWers experiencing anything like this? Maybe Audio isn't a concern for power 3D artists, at least not while creating the visual portion of a work, but at some point, you'll need to process audio while mixing sound with video...

it's alarming to me that apple seems either silent or unconcerned, saying the observed temps are "within normal."

Seems like a serious issue, warranting immediate attention.

Any thoughts?

Apple just released a firmware patch that fixes this.
