    Hi guys,

    I was just playing a 4k video and the fans become so loud so I though I should do a video and see if others are facing the same issue.

    This is unacceptable Apple, £2300 getting so hot that fans go crazy and videos become unwatchable.

    Check this video:

    Download that video on the computer and run it with VLC media player with hardware decoding option. AMD Graphics cards with H.264 hardware decoding 4k only since version Radeon 3xx. It may not be updated driver

    Because the browser can not be decoded video card and separately in VLC could.

    My fans only ramp up while actually encoding 4k, not watching or playing back in Premiere (or on YouTube).
