I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions for settings for SMC Fan Control for a mac pro. I've got an early 2008 2.8 8-core and I've been encoding movies for a while now with Handbrake and my temperatures skyrocketed. I jacked my fans up pretty high and it seems to have help, but I wonder if there is a maximum setting for the fans? Here's what I have the fans set at right now using SMC: CPU_MEM: 1075 IO: 1200 EXHAUST: 1000 PS: 900 I have to admit, I forgot to take a snapshot of the temps I had before I increased the preset fan settings. I think my memory modules were in the mid-70's Celsius and I wanted them more in the low-60's. What temps do you have? And what settings? Also, what temps are too hot?
