    Hi all,

    i have been checking out the forums about how to keep the computer cool. so like many here, i downloaded SMC fan control to help control the fan speed. I play wow regularly and so i have seen my fan speed hitting up to 6200rpm regularly.

    Just today however, when i was about to adjust my fan speed, i noticed that my right fan's rpm is at 232 rpm while the left is at 2380 rpm. i set it such that both fans will at the same speed and thus, i am concerned if it is normal for the right fan to be at 232 rpm while the left is at 2380 rpm.

    Would appreciate any feedback as i am quite concern about my 3 month old mac. :(

    cheers and thanks in advance

    Call apple, sounds like you have a defective right fan.
