    Just got a Rev.A MacBook Air and purchased CoolBook for it. So far, I've set frequencies at 600, 800, 1200, 1400 and 1600MHz to run at 0.9V. My fans, even without running any video, is at 6200RPM and 60 degrees celsius. My MacBook never went over 2400RPM so I'm a bit concerned. What exactly is the throttling level? Are there any other settings I should address?

    Can you post a screen shot of all of your settings?

    Also, I assume that CoolBook is always on?

    Send it back and beg for a rev B at no extra cost.

    I would say the laptop is bad not your coolbook settings.

    Common for an original MBA... it's too often the truth.

    What happens is that it'll stay constant at about 2500RPM and then about 5 minutes into any video(Youtube or Quicktime) and it'll jump to about 6600RPM. Even about an hour after I stopped watching the video, the fans stay consistent at over 6000RPM.

    What should I do?
