    What does your macbook retina 15's sound like at high rpms.. like 5000+ ? Can anyone play me a sound clip? The noise mine is producing is really annoying and I'm wondering if others have the noise as mine..

    HSF noise or HDD noise?

    AFAIK rMBPros do not have HDDs but SSDs.

    I can try to record it later on so you can hear mine. The sound doesn't bother me though, it's still at a decent noise level at 5000-ish rpm. like a constant "wooosh" or something. :p

    Damn, I've never had my RPM that high on my rMBP.

    Anyway, it sounds like "whooooooooshhhhhhhhh".
    Just like air rushing through the chassis. I can't separate motor-noise from it, it's just a whooshing noise, as of a strong wind blowing through a forest on a blustery Autumn's day.

    It sounds less annoying than my post 2012MBA.

    Mine's totally silent. I thought all rMBPs has SSD drives?

    Try playing a graphically intensive game. You'll hear it in no time.

    It's sounds exactly like being inside an airbus a320 climbing up thru 15,000 feet.
