    Hi, i got this Macbook pro 13' like 4 months ago. Corei7 2.9 Memory 8 GB 1600 MHz. And recently, since 2 weeks ago, the fan became loud, and heat up easily but the spin speed is normal as 2000rpm. I only use my macbook for like studying, surfing internet, nothing weird. So what's wrong with my macbook?
    Thank you!!

    Follow every step of the following instructions precisely. Do not skip any steps.
    1. Launch Activity Monitor
    2. Change "My Processes" at the top to "All Processes"
    3. Click on the "% CPU" column heading once or twice, so the arrow points downward (highest values on top).
      (If that column isn't visible, right-click on the column headings and check it, NOT "CPU Time")
    4. Click on the System Memory tab at the bottom.
    5. Take a screen shot of the entire Activity Monitor window, then scroll down to see the rest of the list, take another screen shot
    6. Post your screenshots.

    If you're browsing websites with Adobe Flash content, your computer is going to heat up and the fan will go nuts. I use click to flash to avoid this.

    Your iStat temps are pretty low. Right now I've got Safari, itunes and Messages open and my "Heatsink B" temp is 60c. Yours is 39c.

    but why my fan is so loud? it just suddenly became noisy from 2 weeks ago, and I have no idea about that. Or i need to do a maintenance just for that fan? but this mac is brand new.

    I'm not sure what is going on. Your iStat also shows the fan is spinning at about 2000RPM, which is the normal low speed. Maybe something was pulled into the fan and that is what is making the noise?

    There is nothing in your screen shots that point to increased demand on your system or high temps or fan speeds. As already stated, your fans are at the minimum speed and your temps are normal. You may want to change your iStat Pro preferences to included your CPU and GPU in your temp readings, as they are not visible. I agree you should have Apple inspect your computer to diagnose the problem.
