I got my new mbp(2016 15inch) yesterday and noticed some weird noise coming from the right side fan.
Anyone having same issue?

The noise only hearable whenever tilting my MacBook up and down as shown in the video above.

Sounds like the tolerance is too tight and the fan blades are actually hitting the casing . I wonder if someone can replicate this or if it's just your MacBook Pro.

Return it, they will replace it for you.


Edit: The noise only appears when you tilt it like that? Is that how you normally use the computer?

Lol, why are you swinging it up and down like that? Keep it on the desk what it deserves to be kept like. You'll experience no such sounds... However, if you really think that these sounds are bothering you much then go ahead and replace it asap.

The thing contains moving parts - it's not recommended to subject it to this kind of treatment while it's on. If it makes that noise while it's sitting on your desk (and it might, there's another thread about just that happening), have it replaced. Otherwise: stop abusing it.
