    Hi there!
    I have macbook pro middle 2012 core I7 2,9 Ghz, with 8 Gb external RAM, OS X 10.8.2.
    The problem is: my fans are always too loud. Istat shows: Fans exhausted 0 rpm (so i can not see the actual speed, the same thing in other hardware soft). The temp of processor is around 40. CPU usage: USER 7%, SYSTEM 7%, NICE 0%, Idle 86%.
    So, what is wrong with my mac?
    Thanks a lot!

    p.s. also mac works around 3 hours fully charged (388 cycles, health 79%)

    What applications are you running? Flash content in the internet browser causes my CPU usage to go way up and my fans end up going full speed.

    Thats a lot of cycles on a computer that at the very most is 3 months old. Are you unplugging and letting it drain every time it reaches full charge?

    Try resetting the SMC. Your fans should never be at 0 rpm.

    Your fans won't be at 0RPM - It says that on my iMac too, just means iStat or SMC Fan Control doesn't work on that computer.
