    I haven't heard of anything... But if anyone does have a solution, I'd love to hear it as well.

    Seeing as the MBP goes "RAWWR" when upgrading firmware, clearly some degree of control over the fans is possible. Knowing people's ingenuity I'm fairly certain we'll see a fan speed adjuster.

    Why would you want to? I don't know how but there probably is some kind of terminal command that will do it.

    AH. Less Heat you probably just want to re-apply the thermal grease. Those fans are Loud.
