    So lately I've noticed my Macbook Pro to be quite noisy. According to iStat menus, the fans seems to always be running at 4,000 RPM, even if I am just staring at my desktop, with nothing open.

    They speed up normally when the CPU is under load, but they never go lower than 4k.

    I tried using SMCFancontrol to restore the default settings, but they still run fast. I even reset the SMC the other day hoping that would fix it, but it didn't.

    I've checked activity monitor and used a few terminal commands to check for any processes that are causing high cpu load or anything weird, but I haven't found anything.

    Any suggestions or ideas would be great!

    Run Apple diagnostic and see if any codes pop up. I had a similar problem with my fans and ended getting the top case replaced.
