I'm not surprised the fan can kick up when using emulators. They can be very demanding. My pro 3 may be a powerful device, but it cant even emulate a 13 year old PS2 game.

I noticed on another thread that some were saying their Defender was the cause of their fan running more. They said they switched to another virus application & the fan running dropped off precipitously along with the heating. Don't know if this will do the trick or not, but some said, "Yes!"

I do know for certain that after the May firmware update my SP3 started immediately running warmer and the fan began running more. I hadn't changed my use of the SP3 so I'm certain that particular firmware update caused it.
