    hi there

    recently my 15-inch MBP Core i7 (early 2011) started to run its fans higher than before, even when the CPU is idle. I recall that it used to hover between 2000 to 2500 RPM. Now it's 6500 RPM and up.

    - reset SMC (i think it worked but nothing changed)
    - Here is the current reading from iStat Menu.
    - i cleaned coolers from inside

    => but only right cooler is on 6900 rpm (left one 2000 rpms)

    you have any tips to give?

    Does anyone have any insight or solutions? Is my MBA running hotter than usual? Can I reinstall the EFI or try reinstalling Lion? Thanks.
