    I purchased CoolBook in the hopes of trying to shut the noisy fan up. I did not care much about my core shut down issue, only happened with high intense activity which is rare for me. The core stopped shutting down after I installed CoolBook but the fan problem remained.

    Now I am trying to get a replacement from Apple and I want the core shutdown problem to return. But now even with CoolBook uninstalled the core won't shutdown!!! WTF? Please help me reproduce the core shutdown issue!

    Why the need for a replacement if you problem has been solved?

    Apparently the problem is too much thermal compound. You could unscrew the bottom and fix it yourself. Once fixed with the proper amount of Arctic Silver 5 thermal paste fans are almost silent and your core wouldn't shutdown because of overheating. As long as everything is done properly and you don't break something, Apple would never know ... and if they did why would they care if you didn't break anything?

    Be gone. Noisy Macbook Air!

    So you want your computer to start having problems, when it's working just fine?

    Do something intense, ike play a game or watch a 720p movie or a high def stream. The key is, do it on your bed.

    I dunno about post coolbook, but pre, it worked every time.
