    My iMac gets wayyyyy too hot while running Windows. It gets so hot that it hit the point where it needs to downclock/undervolt to keep it from overheating (which is really annoying while gaming). Does anyone know what tool to use to control the fan speed while in 7? Thanks!

    Input Remapper has a fan control option. I am not sure how well it works on windows 7, but it worked like a charm back when i was running XP x64 on my MBP.

    many threads on this

    for myself i run smcfancontrol from osx and the fan settings are retained when you reboot into windows. works well for me. (inputmapper as i understand was originally for laptop models so i never actually tried it)
