MacBook Pro (16-inch, 2019)
I’m not sure if anyone else also experiencing this high CPU on their Mac Book and lead to a really hot fire 🔥. I’ve experienced this issue a few months after getting this Mac, since then I experienced it every day.
I’m currently on the latest OS BigSur. As you can this Mac is fairly new and fully loaded.
It’s kind of sad when it’s hot over an app like Chrome or when I connect to a secondary monitor and almost have nothing running at all, and Apple technician can’t find anything wrong with it while I brought it to the store twice, and create multiple cases against this Mac. All they say is, they find nothing wrong with it, while I am suffering every day with these types of issues. They suggested me bring it to the store to have it look at, I did that twice, and they find nothing twice.
hit 1000%+, Mac OS X freeze and unusable have to kill it via a power button
Sometimes, I saw my Mail hit 170%+
even on a new browser Brave
More details, I asked here
I tried calling Apple support multiple times, they walked me to reset SMC fan so many times, and it still seems to overheat back (same day). Reset the NV Ram, and not help. They suggested I upgrade the OS. I did that. They suggested I reinstall the OS. Install all apps one by one, I did that.
I’ve tried to take my own steps like :
removing/disabled chrome extensions that I think it might have something to do with all of these. I asked here.
remove any old inbox that I think I don’t need in this Mac
tried with different monitors (34LGUC98 & Dell 34″), with USB-C & HDMI with Apple OEM adapter, while Mac connecting to a default power brick
96W. It got hot doesn’t matter which monitor, or cables, I plugged in.
I’ve tried to install driver even if I don’t think I need
I’m thinking to call Apple Support again and maybe have them look at my Mac remotely, but it feels like I’m going to stuck in the loop, where they will tell me to do the same things, waste so much of my times, and ended up … nothing wrong with my mac while it’s clearly is.
I just need my Mac to run like normal again 😢
I had to sacrifice/broke a fan to make it slanted pointed to my mac keyboard area while using it, so my fingers don’t get burned and my mac won’t freeze while working, no one should go through all of that.
