    Does OS X control system fans based on heat or do we really have to use 3rd party apps like smcfancontrol?

    The fans are throttled up when the hardware gets hotter. Haven't you been experiencing this already? :confused:

    Not really, hence I asked; I notice the high temp and then I run smc to cool it down... so I wondered if I was just neurotic about the temp. I figure Apple should know better then smc. The only time I notice fan noise is when I start up smc.

    On which Mac are you experiencing this? Are you monitoring the temperature as well? Can you give some numbers?
