    One of the greatest things about my relatively new macbook pro with retinal display is how quiet it is. I got this model, because I use it to narrate audiobooks and my imac was too noisy.

    Well, I am in a pickle now because I just updated to Yosemite and when I run Adobe Audition the fan gets pretty lowed (this never happened with Mavericks).

    Is there a fix for this or should I revert back to Mavericks?

    I reset PRAM but no change.

    Not sure where i am
    what year is your mac. Mine is a late 13 and i hear nothing. Download istat menu and tell us how fast are your fans are running. PS: when you download it it kinda puts a bunch of tabs on your menu bar but you can edit it to show sensors, and SSD

    I got my mac refurbished in July of 2014, not sure what year it is.

    I downloaded iStat but I'm not sure how I get the fan speed. I've never used it before (sorry if it's a dumb question but I'm not computer tech savvy)...

    My rMBP ran hot with lots of fan time, and a lot of CPU usage, for a day or so after I installed Yosemite. Other people have had the same thing happen. It appears to be the OS performing indexing and other housekeeping tasks. It should calm down after a day or two.

    No need to wait, check in the Activity Monitor for any processes using large cpu, if mdw... (eg mdworker) etc then it is Spotlight doing its thing but you can screenshot and post back if not sure....
