    Hi,
    This morning i opened the lid of my macbook air (base model 2012) and i heard the fan making an absolute racket, but it didn't sound like when my fan has kicked in before it almost sounded like a hard disk spinning so it downloaded smcfancontrol and saw that it was running at 2000-2400 rpm so then i put it up to around 4000rpm and back down again and the noise stopped, now its its silent self. is this something i should get looked at or just ignore?

    Cheers

    Try re-setting the SMC:

    Might be some debris inside, after you set it to Maximum it cleared and it's gone, that's what I think.
