I had the same problem. I noticed the fans were always running at high speed.
What I did to correct this problem was to remove both fans (be very careful with the very small screws)and vacuum the dust out of the intake and output vents, the fans and the item that had the most dust on/in it was the heat exchangers (looks like little radiator fins). These were so bad I couldn't even see the fins. After startup, my lap is quite as a mouse. After only 2 months, I see I should probably do it again very soon.
