Thread: 2011 MBP fan running LOTS
06-29-2013, 07:54 PM #12011 MBP fan running LOTS
I have a 2011 MBP i7 16 GB of ram and an SSD (I put it in about 6 months ago)
About a month ago the Mac's fan has been running high speed. I use LightRoom 5 and Photoshop CC a lot. Anytime I work in these programs the fan is going. Today I was streaming Netflix and the fan was running the whole time I was watching the movie
Before writing this I was in Lightroom. When I switch to Chrome it took the Mac about 5 minutes to cool enough to stop the fan.
I reinstalled the OS in early Jan when I put in the SSD. Up until the fan issue things have been running well!

A second idea...your computer may be getting dirty inside. Maybe need to open it up & check for dirt/fuzz buildup.
Thirdly...the fans may not have been running at high rpm's previously (opposite answer to suggestion #1)...because ambient temps where you are may have been lower 1-2 months ago.
Fourth...Could be a combination of both higher ambient temps and dirty computer.
