    So I installed Parallels 8 on MBA late 2011 since Apple can't get Windows 8 bootcamp drivers out and the fans going all time? Seems to run OK but wow are the fans annoying.

    Open up Activity Monitor, what's your CPU usage?

    How much RAM do you have? I realize it's a different physical design but for comparison my base model i5 2.3Ghz mid-2011 Mac Mini upgraded to 16GB RAM is almost always silent when running Parallels 8 and Windows 8. I can only hear fan start up at times if I am playing graphical intensive games in Windows 8.
