Controling System Fans

Recommended Posts

I recently took the plunge into the mac universe by buying a MacBook Pro 2.16 GHz. While I love the machine and the OS it does get very, very hot. To the point it painful to touch the case anywhere above the keyboard. I was wondering if anyone know how to throtle the system fans to help ease this problem.


Thnaks in advance

There are a number of hacks and ways to do this; but honestly I wouldn't risk it.


An SMC Firmware Update was released June 27 for 17" MBPs for this reason so I doubt a 15" will be far behind.
