    I have a late 2011 MBP with upgraded 8gigs of ram (myself) a 128gb ssd apple hd and then a 750 gb data doubler. Starting this spring my laptop started getting really overheated and the fans are always really loud. I still have apple care but are they just going to say it is the data doublers fault and basically tell me to go **** myself. I have the original disc drive should I just take the time to put it back in and then bring it there? I already tried opening up and cleaning them but I dont really know what the issue is. I have had issues with my computer ever since I installed mountain lion, it absolutely killed the battery life. Really appreciate the help!

    Absolutely. If you are under AppleCare, then have them take care of your system.

    just remove data doubler and put back the dvd drive,
    i did that once and they didn't notice a thing.
