I have a broken fan in my 2008 MBP. The broken fan is on the side where my right hand is so im assuming thats thr right fan on the MBP. It still spins a bit but is insanely loud but my MBP performance has dropped considerably lately and im wondering if there is any correlation between the two. The main issue is video. Videos that used to stream fine low lag and are choppy and working in Final Cut and After Effects has become quite the slow and verrrrrry choppy process. All things were working out smoothly until recently. I am getting the fan replaced next week and hope it remedies these problems. If anyone has any experience with this I would love to hear it! Thanks!
