hardware – Help me crash my Mac

My MacBook Pro has been crush for months, at least once a day most days.

I blame on overheated as he reached 100 ° C several times when he stopped.

The last time I brought it to a repair shop, they were not able to duplicate the problem. They showed me tests that they performed that showed that the laptop was running successfully for hours, despite the laborious calculations.

It seems to crash at random, for example:

  • With only four tabs open in Firefox … I shut down one and the laptop goes off! (Arrives very often when I would like To close a tab.)
  • On the contrary, with 10 YouTube videos in simultaneous playback and the launch of Prime95 (extremely complex program), the ventilation would certainly be powerful, but the laptop do not crash.

Hence the question:

How to make the laptop overheats on demand?

Ideas of things to run?

I would like to emphasize the different components. This would help or help a repair shop diagnose the problem.


Optional. More details for those interested.

  • The laptop is a 2014 MacBook Pro 15 ".
  • I had a battery problem: macOS said the battery needed to be replaced. So I went to a store (in Hungary) and had the battery replaced. By the way, I asked them to clean it (dust + new thermal paste.)
  • … Overheating problems started then. I reported it to the store, but they could not crash it. They said that this could be a software problem, which left me a bit doubtful.
  • Cmd-Option-P-R did not help.
  • I've finally reinstalled macOS (clean reinstallation, formatted drive, installed mojave), and no difference.
  • Run Apple Diagnostic (now re at reboot) did not help (zero problem detected.)
  • It usually hangs at night … (I do not think it ever crashed in the morning), as if the heat had somehow accumulated.
  • I have a dual boot with Windows (thanks to Bootcamp.) I can play GTA V or Fallout 3 without crashing.

Thanks a lot for your help.
