    Is it normal for the fans to be off by a few RPM's? Sorry if this is a dumb question but I am new to the Mac world :eek:

    Off from what?
    Their idle speed is 200RPM, though it fluctuates around those 2000RPM by 10 to 20 RPM.

    Also have a look here to learn more about Mac OS X, the battery and malware:

    My fans are always around 2000 rpm, they are usually off anywhere from 5-10 rpm difference.

    Why would you expect them to be identical? Two different fans cooling two different parts.
