Usually idle, low temps, fans go at around 2000rpm, for instance my MBP is at 43 C at the moment and the fans are at 1997rpm, this is about the same until it reaches around 70 C when it cranks up to around 3000 - 4000 rpm

All normal. You Tube, Steam, and especially Maya, will tax both the CPU and GPU and that in turn will drive up the temperature and as the temps go up the fan will increase its speed to cool.
