Sadly, yes. I have a custom built PC but I've been playing on my Macbook Pro that is supposed to be used for college assignments. It has gotten so hot in the past that it fried my first hard drive and I had to buy a new one. I went ahead and bought me a 1TB ssd to make it faster. On top of that, I just upgraded my RAM to 16GB and I'm waiting for my TILT Stealth to come in so I'll have a little bit better cooling. Just know this, once I'm done with college, I'm selling it and gonna get my gaming PC more up to date. This little bastard can't take the heat.
