    I caught the video on my iphone.  I already removed istat to show that the issue doesnt stem from the tool itself (and because we have another video if it with the istat readout)

    @rodog101 "It seems like this can surely be fixed with software...."


    ... or they will have to replace many machines.

  • peppie55 Level 1 Level 1

    But it must be software related, because of the normal temperatures..


    I will wait till tomorrow for Oyinko2 till he gets called back, if not? I'm going to call apple care again for the third time (went to the Apple store twice) to ask them to take some action, because the genius's in the apple store agreed this problem is not normal, so they have to solve it...

    downloaded the song and was able to reproduce the problem everytime that last all the way from the 2 minute mark till the end of the song.



    Here's a vid of one of the attemps:

    I see i'm not the only one with this problem. Just purchased the new 2013 macbook pro 15 and the fan goes crazy sometimes. I hope they resolve this, called apple care and the lady said i should return it. No point in exchanging the laptop if they're all affected.

    My fans was ok when I played OVERWERK song in ITunes at first time.


    On second it happened) at 0:28

  • OzCreations Level 1 Level 1

    I just got my wife a 15" 256GB 8GB rMBP, it's totally fresh, it does not even have adobe flash installed (as previosuly mentioned). One of the first apps I installed was firefox, my wide was setting next to me and I noticed that for no apparent reason they spun up to what I can assume is full speed, then eventually spun back down (maybe 1-2mins). she was not doing anything at the time other than using FF with 4 tabs open, so I check CPU load, and browser contents, time machine etc, nothing that I could see to cause it to do what it did, after that it did it again about 5 mins later. After that it seemed ok, but it did get me curious because even my 2011 i7 MBP would not do that even under extreme load. I would have to be rendering a video in iMovie to 1080p etc to cause the fans to be slightly audible. My thinking is it may be somthing to do with an algorythm they use for thermal runaway etc, i.e.if the system has some large jumps in temp consistantly it may kick in the fans as a precaution, which I could see occuring when using the macbook from cold then bringing it up to "normal operating" temp, this may also cause inconsistant temps accross the chassie prior to the body comming up to temp etc. i.e. CPU starts at 25, jumps to 40, HDD stays at 25, even though eventually the system may operate with the CPU at 35-40 and the HDD at 35, once the temp is distributed correctly under normal operation. I It may be just freaking out because it perceaves the difference to be to great?

    Either way, NOT ideal... and very annoying, ironically, one of the reason I brought it was becuase I got sick of hearing her HP blasting in my ear constantly....


    From a production point of view this is fundemental to a laptops design, elementaty stuff, we simply should be not hearing about this. We are IMO buying one of if not the best laptop avaliable on the market. It's simply not good enough.

    Jeez, guys - From the issues that many users are experiencing with SSD MBPs (including myself - ridiculous reboot times and just overall plain bugginess) and reading about all the issues with the rMBPs, I wouldn't count on anything being fixed in the near future, especially with 10.8.3 or an impending firmware update.  Apple just doesn't seem to be capable lately of integrating hardware and software.

  • OzCreations Level 1 Level 1

    I think the most frustrating thing is no one at a tech bar / apple store will have a clue, I've had some luck in the past with iphones etc where apple tech over the phone has some idea, as they may have been seeing a trend globally, local to a single store, not likly unless they do some searching and really follow it up, but there more than likly going to run a diagnostic, give it a bill of clean health and say it's normal. As people have mentioned without a recignised and diagnosed and solved problem were all in limbo land.

  • Kirawang Level 1 Level 1

    Hi there! hope this would be helpful. Like what I have posted before,  the fan issue may have something to do with the Sandisk SSDs. And just now, I have just read  a post from another forum. He claims that a Genies from Apple Store in Chengdu,China told him that this batch of Sandisk SSD have been installed a wrong version of firmware by the time it was manufactured. To solve this issue, apple will change his rMBPS SSD and logic board. But those two things weren't currently available, it will be shipped in on two weeks. So he will give further information after the replacement.  I'll be keep posted!

  • Habsuno Level 1 Level 1

    Good thing i found this Thread!


    I also have this issue, and everytime it happened i couldn't find any clues why the fans were getting crazy like this. The CPU was almost idleing, i was just doing some basic browsing.


    It's almost ironical, i was the least person to buy an Apple product. Now that i bought such a substandard product i feel like an idiot.

  • peppie55 Level 1 Level 1

    Why they need to replace the logic board? If the SSD is wrong?

  • ultraspiracle Level 1 Level 1

    OzCreations - I agree and sympathize.  However, that's not the grand issue.  The problem is that there is little attention being paid to hardware/software integration.  Your fan issue is an example of that and there's absolutely no fix for it currently.  Of course the Genius Bar people can't fix it - there is no fix.  The Apple team is throwing spaghetti at a wall and seeing what sticks - that's what gets incorporated into OS X and nevermind that it doesn't work or screws up hardware or other software.


    There seems to be no desire to refine the OS in ways that solve problems to enhance productivity or stability, but rather to incorporate iOS features that are not important to most of us who use our Macs as serious work machines.  Further, these ill-integrated OS X features seem to negatively affect everything else in the system.

    2013 MBP 15" 256GB (APPLE SSD SD256E Media). Downloaded the song and right around the 1:47 mark the fans started going crazy :\


    This also happened to me after I purchased the MBP and started it for the first time, about an hour in. Out of nowhere it just started spinning the fans to the max. Has been over a month without it happening, but this song made it do the same every time.
