    if your computer controls this already, why would you want it?

    Better to let your computer control it's own fan speed. It's much smarter about what needs to be done to keep things running right then the user.

    Mac users don't want anything like this.

    I'm sorry, you must have me confused with a Mac user because I'm posting in the Mac forum, understandable mistake.

    I guess I am the only one that likes to have control over the temp of my computer. To each their own I guess.. Also, for anybody that has a snap on type case cover on their mac's might find this useful.

    I'd rather my fans only spin up when necessary.

    Typically, temperature monitoring/fan control goes hand in hand with overclocking and unconventional cooling methods. Which Mac users have no interest in, as they have no clue nor do they care about their computer except for the fact that they can get their iTunes onto their iPod and pretend that only Mac's have Photoshop and video editing suites.

    whatever

    The bolded part is true. I had all sorts of temperature monitoring and fan speed controls when I was into overclocking. Now that I have a Mac Pro with WAY more power than I need, I simply don't care if OS X handles my cooling behind the scenes.

    The reason Mac owners aren't interested in overclocking is because we aren't cheap faggots and buy what we actually need. :fawkd:

    I use it. its very good. with it you set a minimum fan speed and you mac can still set the fans higher if it gets hot.

    I use it with my MBP and you get different settings for battery, charing and charged. very good for keeping the mbp completely cool while charging.

    And if you have any issues which temperature / fan could have been the issue, this program may void your warranty.
