    I downloaded the fan control thing, and I don't know how to make it work. I have a temperature gauge at the top, and the rpms, but I don't know how to set it up to run at will. Right now, my mbp is 111 degrees, and it feels hot, but I can't get the fan to come on.

    Seriously? 75 views, and nobody can be bothered to answer?

    Here goes.

    111F is not very hot at all. But anyways, you select a lower temperature at which point you want your fans to come on, and the upper temperature sets the rate at which the fans will accelerate to cool down your system (actually, the 2 in combo do this). Depending on your macbook model, you may have 2 fans, and there is a modified version of fan control out there that allows you to set the fans independently. Grab that one if appropriate.

    It's that simple.

    And really, 75 views is not a lot. :)
