    What's the noise? Does it sound like this?

    nah its a lot less.
    i had that noise before, the one on the video and they cleaned it up.
    i just got apple store far away and wanted to deal with it by myself.
    dont really have any tools to clean it properly and am not that confident about taking the fan out.

    It's worth contacting apple support in the first instance as they will be able to arrange a swap or courier collection for you. I have a similar issue and it will end up with me taking the laptop to an apple authorised service centre for repair.
