    I don't know why but since installing Leopard my 2.33ghz MBP it seems to be a lot heavier on the fans. Before I could sleep comfortably with my MBP on but now I really notice the fans whirring almost to the point that it keeps me awake.

    Am I the only one with this problem?

    Seems to be an issue in the iMac as well.

    I guess Apple wants a cooler machine?

    My fans were crankin' for about fifteen minutes after installing Leopard. The processor was running at about 70-75 Celsius. Since then I'm back in my normal computing patterns and I have noticed nothing out of the ordinary. Temps and fan speeds seem the same when I computed under Tiger.

    Have you checked to see if there's a process using lots of CPU?

    Mine has gotten like 5-6degrees warmer since I installed Leopard, but I installed smcFanControl and increased the lowest speed of the fans to 3300rpm, so now It's ok again :)

    mine was really noisy for a few days, and the fans get a little over-zealous every now and again, but they seem to have calmed down a bit now - only problem I'm getting is erratic behaviour when awaking from sleep :(

    Im getting random fan changes atm./

    44C usually = 2000-2500RPM fan speeds using Fan Control Software, now its 46C and 4280 :S increased all the way up to 6000 and slowly dropped back down..

    Its weird. Leopard has broken something unless the eSATA card/USB 2 powered eSATA 2.5" is doing something it shouldn't.

    For all of you who noticed immediate fan activity that then subsided after a while, it is Spotlight indexing your drive. And every time you plug a new external drive into it, it will index that as well.... which will make the fan turn on again.

    quick looking also seems to take up a lot of cpu, especially if its an avi you're trying to look at.

    No noticeable difference on my C2D/X1600 MBP.
