My MacBook Pro i7 late 2011 model is overheating really bad. Especially on the bottom left and the front as well but not as much. I just order some more ram and want to get an SSD 480 drive. Any suggestions about what I can do?

Mac book has a poorly designed cooling system. Heat is directly tranferred to chassey for some mac books. If urs is one of them, then you are out of luck

Mac book also thermal throttles very badly under full load so dont load your macbook too much.

Its pretty good for pulse loads.

Please say which mac book you have..

Please ensure if its sata or nvme ssd.

Most of the macbooks ram is soldered in.
