    so i got my 2.2 blackbook yesterday and installed the smcFanControl. after messing around with it all night, i decided to wipe the hdd. so i set the fan control to the max (6000) and put in the discs. now after the wipe when i run the fancontrol it says the default is 6000rpm and i cant lower it.

    any ideas on how to reset the fan speed back to normal (~1600). any advice would help alot!

    i had the same problem with my mbp. i copied the .plist file from a friends mbp and it went back to normal. not sure how to change it without doing it this way.

    the file is com.eidac.smcfancontrol2.plist and it is located in users/(youraccount)/library/prefences/. just copy it in and replace the original. you may want to keep the original some where just in case something happens. make sure smcFancontrol is quit before you replace it.

    i believe you can add it as an attachment and email it to me. the file is com.eidac.smcfancontrol2.plist and it is located in users/(youraccount)/library/preferences/

    my email is 45jimmy@gmail.com

    thanks in advance
