    I recently purchased a 15" i7 mbp and downloaded smcfancontrol. I mainly used it to just monitor the cpu temp, but after playing several games, I decided to boost the rpm to 3300 for a few minutes to cool it down. For some unknown reason, I decided to uninstall it and later realized that I kind of missed it. However, now when I open it, instead of showing that the minimum rpm can be as low as the 2000s, the lowest it will go is the 3300 that I recently had it set as. I completely uninstalled it the first time so I don't understand why it would default on this number. Am I missing something? :(

    Where the fresh snow don't go.
    Can't you just set the default back at 2000RPM and save it? If not, just create another one that is 2000RPM

    No, that's the problem, the sliders won't go back down to 2000, the lowest that it shows them being able to go is 3300 and when I try to manually type the number in, it says to enter a valid number.
