    Quick question... guys... playing around with SMC Fan Control a bit...


    And it seems that no matter what I do... the Power Supply Fan won't increase above 600RPM.

    A) Is this a software issue, or might I have a faulty fan?

    B) Is this something to be worried about?

    Thanks!:confused:

    I've had the exact same experience. I think it's a software issue.

    It's more likely that the power supply fan is self-regulating.

    I got a question about this too.

    I don't have it yet, but whenever I use iSight the fan always turns on. Would it be fine if I turned the fan down. I looked at iStat and my processor isn't hot at all
