    Hi,
    Is it audible without the stethoscope? Does it vibrates continuously? You could monitor the temperatures by installing HWmonitor and compare the fan behaviour at high temperatures, if the fan works continuously I would suggest  you to return for a replacement.

    the temps are normal,cpu is around 45 - 58 C at idle  and the roaring is not audible without stethoscope(or if you don't stick you ear in the laptop), but I can feel slight vibration at 2500 rpm up, and the higher the fan speed the more the vibration noticeable is. It is just very annoying ! is it normal? or should I return It?

    Hi,
    Yes, the vibration is not normal, it could be a manufacturing fault or some screw is not in place, so I would suggest you to return for a replacement while you can.
