    Hi all.I think i have a problem.When i bought my mini i could barely hear it but now things have changed. The things is that my fan is showing rpms about 1200-1500 which i think is normal, so i think it's the HDD. Is it possible even though it's 5400 rpm and apple hard drives are generally silent. Also when i put my head close to the mini i can hear some strange metal noise. I can't explain it but you know that HDDs have some things inside which are spinning. Other than that everything works normal which i find strange ... My mini is still under warranty so if i take it to my local store would they change it, even though the HDD is working .. well at least it's still not crashed.

    if it's still under warranty, take it in. If they apple guys find something wrong, it'll get replaced under warranty. No need to operate on the mac yourself.
