Recently, the fan (at least I assume) has been making unusual noises, such as a churning sound. However, within recent days it has been making a very loud and horrific noise. The video below is what I recorded of it until I forced shut down.


I'm covered by Apple Care, and have booked an appointment to see them.

I just wanted to be sure that this is most likely the fan making the noise. The model of the Macbook is late 2011, running Mountain Lion.
