    I have lan party tomorrow and I think it would be wise to control the fans of my SR MBP as I actually think they currently are not running at all in Windows XP. Can anybody recommend a good win32 app?

    Thanks :)

    If you run this program in OSX (its called smcFanControl) and set the fans to maximum (6000 RPM, I believe), when you boot into Windows XP the settings will stay locked at 6000 RPM until you boot back into OSX and change the settings back to normal. Its a good idea to do this when gaming heavily in XP or Vista because you are right, Windows is not quite as intelligent sometimes with the fan speeds.
