    My second rMBP came in this week (FedEx damaged first one) and today I noticed that there is some fan noise that was not present on my first one. It sounds almost like a spinning HDD. Sort of like a fan that is old or has a bad bearing.

    Given that I won the screen lottery (Second's Samsung is noticeably better then First's LG screen), would you request a third replacement or let the Apple store replace the fans? After seeing the LG screen and Samsung side by side, I wouldn't be able to accept a replacement that had a LG screen, and I'm afraid if getting back into the screen lottery. Then again, I hate to have my Macbook torn open already...

    I'd just take it in for repair. Replacing the fans shouldn't be very difficult(admittedly, I haven't really paid attention to the takeapart).

    I had the right fan replaced. The repair took 20 minutes at the Apple store.
