    Default iMac Retina 5k fan running loud

    I made a bootcamp partition and put Windows 7 pro on it to run some games that I enjoy. I particularly love playing a game called Rift. I noticed though, that after just a few minutes of playing the fan ramps up to an audible level and then usually within a few more minutes it will ramp up to what I would imagine to be it's top end rpm (even louder). I was just curious if this is accepatable behavior for the unit. I don't want to overheat anything but if that is normal behavior, I will continue to use it for gaming.

    Default Re: iMac Retina 5k fan running loud

    I don’t have a newer iMac, but mine has never been loud enough to even notice—regardless of what I was doing. . . . Maybe someone with a 5K iMac will have some additional input.
