    Thanks Oyinko2 for your diligent reporting, keeping us up to date.


    Another thought to share, in the engineering lab I work in there are 6...15" MBP retina's, none of which have this issue. So while that is but a very small sampling, it is thought provoking.


    I will wait patiently, placing my faith in Apple. Let's hope they do the right thing and get this resolved as soon as possible.

    Of course! It's too bad I didn't stumble across this forum when doing research for the laptop. I can't believe this could be a problem with the latest model, and with so many people switching not only to apple but to apple laptops to do professional home recording I'm surprised I didn't hear about this. I'm remaining optimistic but I'm very concerned, let me tell say for people who aren't experiencing this when we say the fan is loud we mean it is disconcertingly loud.

    Oh brother, roughtly translated as "Yes we understand there is an issue, but we have no idea"....

  • peppie55 Level 1 (0 points)

    They already know the SSD could (must) be the problem?

    Hey wireless,


    Do they all have samsung drives?

    The most we can do is return and wait.  I plan on returning next week (not yet 14 days)

  • nonchalance Level 1 (5 points)

    Do they have the SD512E hard drives?

  • wirelessmacbookpro Level 1 (0 points)

    Oops... wrote that is haste. Yes they all have Samsung SSD's.


    Myself and four other engineers have SanDisk SSD's.


    I came in early with permission to test theirs and each one displays the fan speed spike when playing the song and at other random times, just like we all seem to be experiencing.


    To those of you who are within 14 days, I would return it for a refund. But that's just my thoughts NOT a suggestion. If I could, I would be thrilled to return mine and wait for the next gen.

    So I decided not to even buy logic before I played around with the computer a bit and saw what the fan issue was like. I tried recording a single track through garage band using the computer microphone (i.e. the most bare bones software with nothing hard for the computer to process) and thirty seconds into the recording the fans literally drown out the acoustic guitar. I'll be taking the computer in tomorrow for a refund or to see if I can exchange it for... what? An earlier retina model? This is absurd.

    Just for anyone concerned that this is an issue related to anything other than the SSD. I can confirm, that having just bought and fitted a 512GB Sandisk SSD into my 2.3 GHz retina MBP, previously fitted with the 256GB Samsung branded model, this issue has occurred three times in the past day, where previously it had occurred on zero occasions in six months.


    I am positive, if anyone wasn't convinced already, that this is purely an issue stemming from the Sandisk model of SSD.

  • OzCreations Level 1 (0 points)

    What other models are shipping with the sandisk SSD? could it affect non retina models? Air?

    I've got the same problem when plaing online radio throught ITunes.

  • mi0772 Level 1 (0 points)

    In my opinion, We need to inform as much as possible the various blogs and magazines specialized in apple products about this issue, so as to give greater emphasis to the problem.

    I can contact blogs in Italy, it would be nice if all the blogs in the world gave prominence to this problem, Apple would take little to solve it.

  • peppie55 Level 1 (0 points)

    I tested it for 20 mins, no fans kicked in!

  • christopherfrommidlothian Level 1 (0 points)

    Peppie55: you tested what?


    The radio? Yeah I don't think streaming causes me any issues.
