MBP 2011

Upgraded with Mountain Lion and now the fan in constantly running.  I've checked the activity monitor and there is no application taking over a few %. 


I don't have anything running other than Chrome, finder, activity monitor, drop box.


I tried the the SMC reset suggested in other posts but that didn't solve the problem.


After shutdown and power up, the fan is off but then it slowly builds to full speed


Any help would be appreciated, thanks
