Smc Fan Control for Macbook

Hi dudes,

I was wondering if anyone else who is currently using Smc FanControl for Mac are finding it not to be working sometimes, watching a video on Youtube these days sends my laptop up to 60 degrees, needless to say if im streaming something online or watching an episode of something, it can easliy go up to 70 and above (usually peaks at around 70-74 degrees) this even happens if i up the FanControl to 3000-4000 rpm.

I just wanted to see if anyone else was expierencing this. Or if anyone had any other similar programs.


Cheers.

Re: Smc Fan Control for Macbook

How old is your Macbook? I had a 2007-era MBP for work that did that all the time and there was nothing the fan could do to bring it down. When they upgraded me to a 2011-built model, all that went away though. Also, I noticed that some OSX updates would cause it to run hotter than others, have you updated recently?

As for Smc FanControl, can't help you there. Sorry.

I have one from the same period and I have the same issue, it really gets very hot, very quickly.

I booked an appointment with a "mac guru" and he basically explained it is normal on certain models and it's not an issue as long as it doesn't switch itself off for the heat. He run some test to overheat and he couldn't do it.

He also mentioned that there's a reason why they're not allowed to call them laptops anymore...
