Can you hear it spin to a higher RPM though?

When you turn your system on, the fan should kick up to a high RPM and be quite audible; when you are gaming, does the fan sound like it's spinning faster/higher RPM than when you're just sitting on the desktop doing nothing?

May be a good idea to update your BIOS as well, since it looked like you were several revisions behind according to Acer's website's listing for your laptop model.
