    Okay, so this just started yesterday. But My fan now is making this really really bad noise, it kinda sounds like the edge of the fan scrapes the outer casing of the fan. It's really loud, and doesn't sound good. Does anyone have any ideas of what the problem is? Should I just take it in.

    Regardless of the cause, a noise like that can't be good. I'd head straight to Apple for help especially when it's under warranty.

    Called Apple, he thought maybe it was a loose screw. I'm going to open up the ram part in the back. Give a look around without touching. Maybe it's a quick fix.
