Fan/overheating

Questioner General

Hello, I purchased the iMac H12G5HLLPN7C online a few days ago. Last night after working on it for about 12 hours with videos, the fan kicked in with a loud noise.

Is this normal or should I take it for service?



Until a few days ago I used an iMac from late 2012 (El Capitain) with which I have always worked in this way and it never gave me overheating / fan problems, not even in summer.

Thank you
