    Hey everyone quick question is it normal when watching a flash video my fans will run at over 6400 rpm and my cpu hit 85 degrees. It seems VERY loud for just a video, could there be something wrong? thanks I have 13 ultimate 2010 btw

    Flash is CPU intensive. It's nothing to worry about (unless the MBA shuts down).

    Have you updated to the most recent version of flash? It may help.

    I had fancontroll still present from years and years ago. Found it in the preferences when I was looking for something else. I deleted it and after a reset of the power management it has a total different behavior. It kicks in later but more vigorously if it does so and overall it is more quiet.
    But if I do have some real intensive tasks, it does kick up the fan quite rapid and indeed with quite some noise.
