edit: Upon reading several threads here (which never showed up on Google), I've taken my laptop from the stand (my laptop sleeve allows for a 20 degree angle stand) and I can hardly hear the fan anymore. So not sure if this is a design principle from Apple? To those that have the 2016 15' MBP w/ Touchbar - how quiet can the fan get for you? I noticed my fan is somewhat audible from a normal sitting position (i.e. chair), but not loud enough to be gravely concerned about it. I did spend a solid 8 hours on Photoshop last night from 3pm to 11; but it should be cooled down overnight. It somewhat did this morning, but the touch bar and the upper part of the keyboard was still lukewarm. I can guarantee I did shut down the computer properly last night after using Photoshop. I've not used my MBP since last night and I only just back from work few minutes ago (11:02pm as I'm writing here) - the fan noise is still there but the touch bar and keyboard has cooled down now. In spite of that, I have reset the NVRAM (which really has little to no effect in this issue) as well as the SRC. I've also ran Apple's official diagnostics tool, which did put the fan completely quiet until I reboot the computer and the fan noise came back on again. Considering I've spent almost $4,000 NZD as well as having the opportunity to exchange it during the 14 day period (I only got this on Tuesday) - I might as well know what's best for me to do: exchange it or keep it as it is. ~ smcFanControl reads as 32 degrees Celsius with left fan running at 2160 rpm and right fan running at 2,000rpm. I know these are the default and minimal values for the fans of the MBP. As I'm no hardware expert, does someone know if fans are meant to be audible at this speed or not? ~~ Activity Monitor looks good AFAIK. Idle CPU is in the 90s, and regardless whether I am on discrete or Intel graphics, fan noise is audible.
