Cool off your Macbook with smcFanControl

Make 362

Previously Dale had mentioned his Macbook was getting hot, here’s a tool to manually control the fan to cool that puppy down…

  • Let’s you set the minimum speed for each fan individually.
  • Adjust fan speed until the Macbook(Pro) is finally comfortable on your legs again
  • Auto apply mode to set the new fan-speeds after a restart
  • Sourcecode included! Extend it and change it to your needs

Updated version, smcFanControl 2.0 – Link.
