    Hi all this is my first post so sorry if this has been posted before but i have had a look and i can't seem to see it, the question i have is what are the standard pre set fan speeds for a intel core 2 duo 2GHz macbook running leopard version 10.5.5 ? The reason i ask is i downloaded smc fan control and accidently changed the presets without taking note of what they were originally :eek: The other question i have is would you recommend changing the fan speeds and does this effect your apple care warranty? i dont know if this helps but the macbook is a year old in january :/ thanks for all of your help :)

    I am pretty sure the default is 1800 RPM.

    Fan speed - you only have one ;) Default speed is 2000rpm I believe, although I don't have a MacBook to check (MacBook Pro's are 2000rpm).

    Changing the fan speed won't affect your warranty (but don't be daft and leave it running at 6000rpm constantly).
