How about doing a bit more digging to find out why the fan is racing here. I would install this great app: TG Pro for less than $20 you really can go wrong here.

Post a screenshot of the main screen so we can see where things are.

Update (01/18/2017)


6500 RPM is the Max!

If you are running something that CPU/GPU intensive you'll need to run it on something else as your system is not designed to run that hard that long.

You''ll cook the batteries, burnout the fan bearings & the logic board will crap out.
