    What are the default fans speeds in a MP 1,1? Do you stick with the default values, or do you run your fans at higher speeds?

    Power Supply 599rpm.
    Exhaust 599rpm.
    CPU 499rpm.
    HDD 499rpm.

    Ambient temperature is 22ºC, CPU's 32 and 35ºC respectively.So here no need to increase fan speed.

    smcFanControl will let you control the fan speed to keep your Mac cooler than Apple's default fan speed settings.

    Give smcFanControl a wide miss and let the default settings manage the fans.

    I use smcFanControl, and I must have inadvertently saved higher speed setting into the default profile when playing around with it. The machine sounded too loud, but I didn't want to reduce the speeds at random, without knowing the actual default values. Hence my question. The room my MP is in gets pretty hot in the summer (no AC), so I like to have the ability to speed the fans up when CPU temps etc. get too high.
