Hi All, I have a 2011 13 base model ( upgraded to 8GB RAM) which I use at work. I use win7 with parallels 6 at my work (I configured parallels to use 3GB of RAM and 2 processors and it is a boot camp partition). The temperature idles at 70C with default fan speeds and when set default to 3000 using smc fan control it idles at 60C. So my question is : what are the effects of running fans at minimum 3000 rpm all the time(8-10hrs a day), I am sure It wont damage anything besides the fan , but inputs are appreciated. Or Should I just leave at default fan speeds. If I leave it at default speeds it is warm to touch on the left side of the keyboard. And what is the lifespan of fans in these notebooks? Thanks..
