    Follow up:

    Macs Fan Control is now mature, runs great on both the Mac OS and Win (bootcamp side) and is still free. And, it supports EVERY model! Get it, use it, love it.

    I use it on Macs that are under heavy load, so I can keep temps lower than default Apple settings....at the cost of a bit of fan noise.

    I have used it several times. Useful to have in your toolbox, just in case. Thanks for mentioning it Unc.

    SMC is great....as long as your heat sensors are still working correctly. If not....last time I checked.....it won't slow over-speed fans down.


    FYI.
