    The fan in my Premiere has been loud upon startup since I got it used a number of years ago. I upgraded to a Bolt a year ago and stopped using the Premiere. I need to start using the Premiere again, and wanted to know if the fan is only loud upon startup, should I be concerned about replacing the fan? If yes, please recommend one on Amazon, preferably with Prime, so I can take care of this fast. Thanks!

    What you can do in the meantime, is to open up the case and dust out the interior including the fan. See if that helps.

    It is my belief that the fan has a (fairly) short period where it runs at full speed during startup. Pretty quickly after startup the fan runs at a slower speed.

    YMMV.
