    Courtesy of BOINC, my MBPro, after two months of being on continuously, has developed an odd low-frequency "thudder". When the fan speeds up with the high-end video, it's more like a loud low-frequency buzz.

    Is this in indication of dust clogging the fan? Is there an "intake" to blow compressed air in to clean the fan, or is this one of those "disassembly" things that might void the warranty?
