    SMCFanControl lets me set a higher minimum fan speed on my MacBook Pro (I like to keep it at about 3600rpm instead of 2000rpm minimum).

    Is there a way to do this with the MacBook Air? SMCFanControl doesn't seem to detect the MacBook Air properly.

    Essentially I want it to run at around 3600rpm and increase to 6200rpm as needed. It should never be running lower than 3600rpm.

    Says who?

    I've never had a machine after the pentium III die on me because of heat related issues. The fans will kick in when needed based on voltage/load.

    But to answer your question, I do not know :(.

    That's strange, I downloaded SMCFanControl last month and it detected my MBA just fine...

    I'm not saying that as a specification from Apple. I'm just saying that I would like it to run no lower than 3600rpm. This helps to keep temperatures down.
