There are two different fan control softwares available. smcFanControl and FanControl. FanControl will allow you to set your minimum fan speed at 1000 rpm.I was under the impression that smcFanControl couldn't go below the stock speed set by Apple. Mine starts at 1800RPM.
this might sound quite silly to someone with more intelligence than me, but are drivers PowerPC/Intel binaries, or are they just files controlled by the OS. Beacause if youve got PowerPC Drivers, that may cause the fans to run. When i run PowerPC apps on my macbook the fans run, but apart from that, its almost silent.Mine is almost always silent, as in dead silent.
The exceptions are when I play games, open Aperture or when I print.
Does anyone know why my fans go crazy whenever I print a document?
