Hi gang!


I have a late 2012 Retina Macbook  Pro.  As of this writing, my fans are running at about 8500 rpms.  I can reset the computer and it will go back to normal, but this happens with some regularity.  Anyone else having this problem?



MacBook Pro with Retina display, OS X Mavericks (10.9), 13", 8gb RAM, 256gb HD (late 2012)

    Have you tried a SMC reset?

    I have a mid-2012 retina MBP and I have noticed the same problem after upgrading to Mavericks. For no reason whatsoever the fan goes into overdrive and will not stop even if I close down tractically all the apps. However, if I put the MBP to sleep and wake it up after the fan stops everything is fine.


    Once I noticed a coreaudiod daemon process taking a ton of CPU and killing this helped. But in other instances there seems to be minimal CPU activity reported in the the Activity Monitor yet the fan s going crazy.


    Did the SMC reset help?

    I haven't been able to tell yet if the SMC reset helped.  I did it yesterday and haven't been at my computer much today.  But I will report back soon!
