    I'm just curious. SMC fan control has kind of spoiled me and I always check it and try to keep it pretty cool. Fans are cheaper than motherboards. Anyways it's 68C now. Thanks!

    While you certainly may use smcFanControl, such 3rd party apps are not necessary to keep your Mac running properly. Your Mac will automatically manage temps and fan speeds to keep temps within a safe operating range.

    Though what you say is true, I still believe that less heat = less wear on more expensive parts.
