    Hello guys,
    I am not a fan of apple's automatic fan control, especially during rendering it speeds up the fans way too late. Then I can already cook something on my iMac for example.
    Can you recommend any good fan control app for my rMBP? I am not so sure, which one I should choose because I read that some remove the automatic settings and you have to reset your smc.
    Thanks,
    ViennaXP

    Use FanControl for Mac. It can increase fan speed automatically as the temperature increases (fan curve).

    I have attached the Application and files you need to change (instructions in ReadMe) which I found on another thread.

    I tried this and I don't really like it. I now see a FanControl thing in my Preferences pane. Is there a way to remove/uninstall this program?
