The new MacBook Air on M2 is incredibly hot, but there is an easy and cheap way to partially fix the problem

The new MacBook Air on SoC M2, among other things, stands out for its rather hot temper. And it turned out that the situation can be partially corrected very simply, quickly and cheaply.

The new MacBook Air on M2 is incredibly hot, but there is an easy and cheap way to partially fix the problem

The MacBook Air, unlike the MacBook Pro, is equipped with a passive cooling system, so the new M2 gets very hot. In particular, in Cinebench R23, half a minute is enough for the SoC temperature to reach 108 degrees!

The whole procedure for improving the cooling system is covered in the video at the source, but in short, you just need to stick thermal pads that are glued directly to the inside where the SoC is located. Thus, heat is partially transferred to the body, which contributes to better cooling of the platform. As a result, the temperature under load drops by about 10 degrees.

Lower temperatures affect, among other things, throttling, and it, accordingly, affects performance. As a result, the modified MacBook Air performs at the level of the MacBook Pro, even slightly ahead of the latter. Without modifications to the MacBook Air, the same task (exporting to Lightroom) takes one and a half times longer!

True, in the same Cinebench R23 benchmark, the temperature eventually rises to 108 degrees anyway, but not in half a minute, but in one and a half.

Unfortunately, another disadvantage of the new MacBook Air cannot be fixed in any way.
