smcFanControl – Control Your Fans

My Mac runs hot, its a MacBook Pro, and it can cook eggs when its pushing out the CPU cycles on a big Photoshop job or video edit. As a result I do get a bit concerned about its temperature. Using iStat Menus in my menu bar I have seen the temperature run up to 70 degrees Celsius before the fans begin to start kicking in from there idle speed. Idle speed, by the way, is the normal speed the fans are running at when your computer is doing nothing. At 70 degrees this surely isn’t right. But since I haven’t seen any melted laptops yet it must be ok but still concerning.
