    Okay so I have a 15-inch Mac Book pro from early 2011 and my fans run really obnoxiously loud pretty much no matter what. I'm using smcFanControl and it says I'm running at 160 degrees fahrenheit and my left side is running at a whopping 6000 (more or less but on average) and my right side is running at 1498. On my Activity Monitor under CPU it says I have about 90%-95% idle and I really don't know how to fix this fan issue. It's extremely loud and I've even tried opening up the laptop and air blowing our the dust in the fans and it still is loud. Any issues? Keep in mind that it's more of my left side then my right side fan. Thanks!

    The 2011 MBPs are infamous for having bad thermal paste application, which lead to high temperatures and causing the GPU to fail.
