    This just started happening while I was reading an internet forum in Chrome. No flash on the site and the CPU's were barely using any processing power. The fans started running at 6000 rpms and the Heatsink B temp is right at 80 deg cel barely kept in check by the fan. CPU is at 42 deg.

    Restting the SMC didn't help.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    I just made an appointment to see the genius at the Apple store tomorrow. The upper back of the display is warm/hot to the touch which is unusual.

    It got to 90 deg and the fans were at 6500 rpm. The upper left of the back of the display became pretty hot so I let the MBA sleep for a couple of hours and it is back to normal. ???
