Fan Control

Another prefpane that perfectly compliments iStat Pro's temperature monitor. Does what the title suggests.

I noticed this week that my macbook was about hot enough to light a cigarette on. It seems that the laptop's internal fans idle RPM was too low (around 899) while the casing burned to the touch. This little guy allows you to create a preset range of RPM correlated with temperature thresholds (bonus points for the handy graph)


Most CPU's will force shutdown when it hits about 110'C.

Average CPU temperature in Unibody MacBook Pro's: 48'C - 90'C.

10/10 because it saved me from buying a(nother fucking) new battery.
