Not sure if this was the case with 13.04 as well but I've only noticed it since a week ago or so. The fans aren't terribly loud and when I have my headphones on I don't even notice but it's really weird and can't possibly be right like that.

Every minute or so (sometimes more frequently) the fans turn up for around 10-15 seconds or so and then off again.

Without me doing anything that would require that. Any idea what to do?

Do you have tlp installed? –  mreq Nov 25 '13 at 21:16
I have after you wrote this comment. Didn't seem to change anything though. Still getting the same symptoms. –  cruxfilm Nov 26 '13 at 19:54
I had the same issue, it was really annoying. The only help I can give you is to go back to 12.04 LTS. My Zenbook is now most of the time silent. –  nikercan Jan 10 at 19:31
