    I saw a single post somewhere on these boards about something called "coolbook" which is a utility that undervoltages (is that even a word?) the chip to make it run cooler.

    It's $10 to give it a try. Wonder if anyone with fan issues would give this a try to see if it changes the heat/fans much?

    Google coolbook and you will find it.

    Just tried installing, but comes back with an error when you try to install it 'Could not install driver.'

    At first blush it would appear it won't work with the mutant Intel CPU in the MBA.

    Yeah, it's not compatible with MBA yet, otherwise it works (at least for previous MB/MBP).
    Hope developer would update it, he seems to catch-up eventually, although in very un-Mac'y way, he's not transparent at all, no blog, no real trial of software.

    I installed successfully but couldn't make ends of it, so I trashed it. I would like to know if it works as well.
