    Can anyone tell me at what cpu temps the fan's rpm increases? Reason I ask, is I am running smcFan control and have noticed that when it's running, the fan speed doesn't seem to go above the threshold I have set - even when there is an extreme spike in temps. I am wondering if since I am running it, I will need to manually adjust the fan speed, or just not run it and have the fan self regulate.

    Thanks, in advance

    Mine in my Black MacBook starts up at 70 degrees. For some reason, that's starting up the computer and watching Youtube vids... Time for an upgrade methinks.
