    Hi, I updated all 3 of my Macs to 10.11.2 on the day it was released. I'm noticing that on my Macbook Air 13 (Early 2014) and Mac mini (2011), fans are really loud after startup, even with no apps launched (except for Adobe CC, Dropbox, 1Password, Alfred, Fantastical, etc. that sit in the menu bar).

    My other machine, Macbook Pro 15 (Late 2013), with the same menu bar apps above, is quiet as ever. My MBA and mini have never been this loud before.

    Has anyone been experiencing the same issue? I've tried resetting SMC on MBA but that does not seem to solve the issue. Any help/tips would be appreciated!

    might be some temp background indexing going on. give it a while then reboot.

    Thanks, xgman. My MBA seems to have quieted down for the last couple of hours or so...hopefully indexing was the cause of it...never happened to me when upgrading OS X.

    I have 2012 MBA, just update from 10.9 last night. So far so good, no issue. However, it seems, the temp is easily getting high (around 60-80 celsius), while in mavericks it was around 50-60 celsius. A slightly complex content in Safari would increase the temperature.

    OK, it wasn't the latest El Capitan that was causing the trouble...it was Adobe Creative Cloud (3.4.1.181), that was updated around the time 10.11.2 came out. Activity Monitor showed CC using more RAM than my MBA ever had and taking up majority of CPU and battery power. Now that I upgraded to the latest CC (3.4.2.187), my machine is as quiet as it ever was before.
