    My fans are stuck at 6200 rpm. I downloaded SMC Fan control and have my minimum speed set at 1500 rpm. I checked my activity monitor and there is nothing taking up a large amount of my cpu. My temp is around 60c-70c on average, which is normal. Please help.

    Not really, especially if your fans are already going at 6200 rpm

    Make sure you are viewing "All Processes" in the Activity Monitor.

    At that speed the noise must be awful.

    You will not believe how thankful I am to see this. I have been searching the internet for over 3 months trying to figure out what went wrong. I selected "All Processes" and I saw LexmarkCUPSDriver was taking up 95 to 98% of my CPU. I've been to the Apple store 3 times and they couldn't find the problem, and I just wanted to register to thank you!



    THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!
