    I'm hearing a buzzing noise with my laptop, and my cpu is at 40 and fan speed is at 1798rpm. Is that normal? If not, how should i fix it?

    Hi and welcome. The search function is your friend. Google smcFanControl.

    When I open smcFanControl it tells me that the basic speed is 1800, so you are ok... I keep mine running at 2000; using smcFanControl.

    thanks! I think I will let the mac determine the fan speed...
