    Hi, is there a way to fix this? Everytime I start the computer in boot camp, the fans go crazy and never stop or calm down. It is so loud that when I try to record something, since this is a unibody and the microphone is at the bottom, the noise of the fan gets in the microphone, gets out of the speakers and falls in a high screech loop.

    It is so annoying and I want it to stop :( Also right now all I am doing is running a Virus check and writing this thread in firefox with 1 tab, and it is at 78 celcius average. My CPU is also going from 20% to 80% and my RAM is at 900mb. Is there a way to use less RAM? I wish this had better memory like OSX but I need windows for all my tweaking needs :( wow this sucks.

    My computer is a 13 inch mb unibody 2.4gzh. I got it 6 days before the new ones came out and the apple store wanted to charge me for an exchange :O even though the new one was 100$ bucks less, which is what they wanted to charge me! Oh yeah I forgot :) is there a way to fix all this besides upgrading RAM? Usually that doesn't work either.

    Actively running Virus Scan can consume a TON of resources depending which software you're using.

    When I BootCamp to Win7, I hardly ever have the fans kick up a notch beyond idle (3000rpm it feels like).

    Sounds like you have something consuming a bunch of CPU cycles (which you said, kind of). End that process, and you should be golden.

    You have to have something running that is taking a lot of cpu power. It could be the virus scan. Try idling it and not running any programs to see what the fans are running at then.
