    What speed are you running your fans at? I just installed smcFanControl to help keep my 09 27" iMac cooler.

    I have an early 08 24", and I'm running my fans with smc at around 1850.
    Temps dropped from the upper 70's without smc to the mid-50's ºC.

    For starters I bumped all three up 50%. Temps were in the 32-35c range.
