Hi everyone,

I just saw the thread, I had this same problem when I was writing my
thesis, my Mac burned due to overheating of the GPU (don't know if it was
related to TexShop, but I know it was GPU related). The fact is MacBook
Pros early and late 2011 have a problem, Apple issued a recall, I saw last
month, just go there (Apple Store) and replace it. Majority of MacBook pros
of this era had this issue of burning  the logic board due to overheat of
GPU, was a fault in AMD chipsets at the time, also it seems to have
something or burn too the battery temp sensor.

Best Regards,

Luis Vitorio Cargnini, Ph.D.
