Fan Control v2.0b6 64bit
I updated the Fan Control a little because I'm a big fan of it myself.
2. Refactored some deprecated code.
3. Added Ambient Temperature
4. Updated the project to use the modern stuff (LLVM)
Someone else needs to put it in the installer packager though
PS: did build it for yosemite, but should work with older OSX versions.

I've set up a public repository on Github with the initial v2 release from Concorde Rules to open up collaboration on the project:
It would be great to get your project update committed to the public repo.
*** A BIG thanks to Concorde Rules for opening up the source.

thought i'd try out the new version. as far as installing, where does the fan control daemon file go?

We need to make a bigger step here. The old way FanControl started itself with the help of /Library/StartupItems will no longer work in Yosemite. So I changed the way doing it like it was supposed to be since MacOSX 10.3 (launchd).
In the archive you will find a script called install.sh. This script will copy the binary to /usr/local/libexec and a plist to /Library/LaunchDaemons.
With these files in place launchd will start the FanControlDaemon on every restart. It will even restart it if it crashes. The plist will make sure that only MacPro4,1 and MacPro5,1 will start this Daemon.
Since the normal user is not allowed to write to these places you need to start the script with sudo like this "sudo ./install.sh" if you are inside the directory.
PS: make sure there is nothing evil inside the script or binary. you should not simply start anything from strangers with sudo!

This new version works very well.
And I found that the CPU fan speed is still base on the CPU temperature, but the intake / exhaust fan speed is now base on the heatsink temperature.
Anyway, is there anyone can make another version that both fan speed base on the heatsink temperature? I prefer this is because it will allow me to run the CPU at a little bit higher temperature but little bit lower fan speed (and quieter).

Thanks for the update ! Works on 10.10 as older version didn't.
I use that nice tool for presetting minimum fan speeds to SMC and during runtime I use "Macs Fan Control".
