    Hi

    Well the summer is upon us here in Europe and my iMac is starting to run a tad hotter today, just reached 55C, feels like I could fry eggs on it.

    Does anybody crank their fans up through the summer months, if so to what speeds ?

    Using smcFanControl mine are set to.......

    ODD 1500 Min
    HDD 2500 Min
    CPU 2000 Min

    yeah noticed mine is a bit hotter just b/c the ambient air is hotter (even w/ the a/c on). i cranked by HDD fan speed up to keep it at or under 52 deg C.... it's probably at abotu 3000 rpm in smcfancontrol
