    Not that I'm having problems with my Macbook's fan (mine doesn't moo), but I came across an app that throttles fan speed and tells you your cpu temperature. I'm at 4000 rpm, and 50 degrees celsius (116 farenheit) and I was wondering if that was, for lack of a better word, a suggestable number.

    Also, if left untouched, is the fan speed dynamic, changing on whim of the temperature?

    That sounds fine. Personally I'd have never installed the application - if it aint broke...

    Well, I ran my Macbook with a malfunctioning fan (it never revved up) for around 5 months and my computer got to around 90 degrees celcius before it started affecting performance. Its amazing how much cooler it runs now. :)

    Also, the fan will speed up when it is needed (i.e., the temperature is rising) you shouldn't have to worry about it at all.
