    i have a very strange problem and i dont know how to fix it
    i have installed SmcFanControl2 and updated it to 2.1.3.1 and my minimum is 4000rpm now instead of 2000. Is there anyway i could change this?

    p.s. i know i could just shut off and it'll reset back to 2000rpm if i dont have the program running but it is turning out to be quite a hassle.

    thanks

    I have the same version and by default the minimum RPM is 2000.

    Start the application, from the menubar, click on the SmcFanControl display and select "Preferences" and change the minimum fan speed to 2000 rpm. Hope it helps :)

    i cant change the minimum to 2000 because in the preferences 4000 is the new "minimum" and i cant type in the value 2000 either.

    Type in the value? Mine has a slider bar to change the value. 2.1.3.1 slider range is 2500-6200.

    yeah I have a slider bar too ... from where I can adjust the settings. Maybe a reinstall would help?

    Right click on smcFanControl/Contents/Resources/Machines.plist, edit it?
