    How would you go about cleaning fans for macbook retina ? Over time, my macbook retina has gotten hotter faster.. and louder from the fans running high.. so I'm guessing its because of dust inside the fans ? If so, how would I clean them ?

    I do this periodically, very easy just take the set of screws off the bottom of the mbp (you need the right screw driver for this you can find them online for cheap), pop off the back plate, and take a can of compressed air and blow out the dust.
