Hey guys,
I have a 13inch mid 2011 MacBook Air that is still under 3year Apple warranty for about 30 more days. Over the last 6 months or so the fan has really started kicking up, I get tons of memory leaks in safari, firefox and chrome, and my CPU temp sits 50-60 and can kick up over 80C. The high temps come from streaming video and memory leaks which can happen during routine web browsing (4-8 tabs, usually only half have ad content).

Should I try and get Apple to replace something while my Air is still under warranty? If yes, what should I ask them to replace?

Hmm my macbook air doesn't have a fan vent… Do you think a clean install would help? I don't even know how to do that on a mac.
