Minecraft is quite CPU intensive game because it is java ( I think)
I think you should buy cooling pad for your laptop, my friend was unable to
play games because of the heat issue, but after buying that pad, he was
able to play games.

That is only an example of the pads I mean. You should get one from closest store.

ConquerI can play nearly all games without the fan working a bit but minecraft just works it.
EG: Halo works without need for a fan.

Its normal.. Minecraft takes a lot more powerfull processor to run... Because it has to generate all the single chunks.. Theres no way really to stop this... But what you can do is try to clean your computer. Open it up and clean all the dust. That cause a lot of problem with overeathing. You can also put a home fan (if i can call it like that XD) next to your computer.... Thats what i did with my old laptop XD . It worked fine

Get a new case, and/or bigger fan.
I suggest Razor Silencio, but look up cases that handle overheating.

I've had one of these for over a year now, and before I got one my laptop ALWAYS overheated, but since I got this it has never overheated, and its cheap but its still good.

But if you want to go for something a bit pricier but better, it says this used to be 121, reduced to $23.99

http://www.lightinthebox.com/Deepcool-M ... tely_buy_2

I REALLY recommend getting one of these, it will help dramatically.

Vacuum the laptops fan out. Dust builds up in the fan and causes it to overheat by blocking the air flow. It solved the problem for my laptop when it used to randomly turn off without any warning.

You could always invest in a few fans, unless you are using a laptop.

or just do this.

I have about 3 gig of RAM and mine overheats fast. So I bought an external fan to keep it cool,, it helps a lot.

get better air flow . . . . inside the computer wires can stop the air from flowing correctly.

Also check your fan speeds and make sure you have 1 blowing in and one sucking the air out.

Also, if you have a G-card fan make sure its running. If its a laptop give it room to breath. Ram don't matter on how well MC runs mainly GPU and CPU power.


Hope this helps. And BTW check for dust ! DUST IS BAAAAAAD !!!!
