    It's not a house, it's a home.
    subject says it all. Right now I am hovering about 49-52C...

    I just put Fan Control on my comp and these are the settings I chose - how do they sound?

    Base: 2600RPM
    Low: 49C
    High: 80C

    thanks...My temp hasn't changed much since my last post, but I just want to make sure I am not working the fans too hard by having them set to a minimum of 2600RPM.

    Mine is at 61 right now, which is much hotter than I would like, with minimum programs running.. It does that after I run the computer for a while. Usually it is in the mid to high 50s... I have the fan control set to base at 1800, low at 58 and high at 78... All I'm trying to do is prevent the fans spinning at full speed, and it seems to do that.

    The fans will still go to full speed under any bit of strain...

    Mine is at 50-54ºC with safari, airport-wifi, itunes singing,messenger and word-excel-powerpoint. Fans runs at 1800-2000 no further, and I have been running my MBP for almost 5 hours.
