    I have a fairly common problem. My fans start spinning loudly when I open YouTube and Facebook tabs in Google chrome. I know chrome can be a CPU hog, but I have tried many fixes but those haven't worked.

    Any solutions so that I can browse such websites without fan noise?

    FYI, I have a new maxed out 2015 MacBook Pro 15inch retina.

    Thanks in advance.

    You could use Safari instead.

    Yes don't use chrome it's that simple, and use the click to flash plugin.

    You can install a program that allows you to control your fan speeds and find a better medium between noise and cooling if you still wish to use Google Chrome.

    Hope this helps.

    Switch to Chrome Canary, it`s better optimised for OS X

    I had an issue with the fan. Every time I plug in an external monitor the fan speeds up to 5-6k rpm. My razer mouse also kept skipping and then disconnecting every 5min. I've got to unplug and plug it in again each time to get it to work. So I swapped my mbp 15" with dGPU for the base model. No issues anymore! I'm not sure if the one I got previously was a dud.

    Which razer mouse do you use?
    On mine I have the base plugged into the usb on the Thunderbolt Display and I've noticed that it takes a second for my dpi settings to kick in

    Why didn't you just exchange it for a new one with a dGPU? were you convinced that all of them were defective?

    I just got a 15-inch with dGPU and after some quick testing it seems to be all good with fans. I tried playing a 1080p video in chrome on yt for 15 mins and it remained on low rpm (almost silent).

    Depends on the day, but usually I live all over.
    Loud fans seems to be normal for the 15 Inch models. I had the first one with loud fan and it got hot fast so I exchanged it and the same thing occurs on the new one, (actually it is slightly better now.) I am hoping OS El Capitan will help with improving this. Either way, I can live with it as having the fans on means it's keeping it cooler.
