    Hey I just got my macbook pro repaired and they replaced the logic board.

    The fans are MUCH louder now. I keep them at around 3000 rpm with SMC and never heard them before. Now they annoy me. Any ideas?

    They probably replaced your fans as well as the mobo. Some of the fan units are louder than others. I wound up replacing one on my former MBP because it liked to growl all the time. :D

    You might try running them a bit faster or slower to reduce the noise. You may also only have one that makes more noise than the other so you can adjust the speed on that one.
