    I just got my MBP yesturday so i'm trying to figure it all out. I searched the forums a little but basically I was wondering if there is a way to alter a configuration file IN LEOPARD to change when the fans kick on. My MBP was pushing 200F and the fans weren't all the way kicked on. NO BUENO! Anywayz, i was thinking at 200F it should be at like 6000RPMs. I don't ever want it to reach that again so i was wondering if you guys could help me out without a 3rd party app.

    Why you do not want a 3rd Party App? Many of us use smcfancontroller. Its clean, helpful and does not require memory at all.

    Yeah--unless you feel like typing code into the Terminal, you're going to have to use a 3rd party app. Frankly, that would also be far safer than going Terminal commando.

    Smcfancontrol 2.1.2 keeps my SR MBP at 100F (not C :)) constantly using about 3500rpm speed.
