I just installed this update. Once the system restarted, I didn't see any noticeable change in system fan speeds or any new options to control fan speeds by temperature or RPM's.

If you are looking to control the four individual fan speeds for the MAC PRO's CPU/HDD/CASE/and Power Supply go to:

http://homepage.mac.com/holtmann/eidac/

search for a utility called smcFanControl.app

Once installed, you can easily adjust the fan speeds to keep your system cool.

I apologize, I see that you do have 2.1.2, after following your link.

The last line of your comment "(8/8/07 version 1.1)" is misleading.

What does the "version 1.1" refer to?

1.1 is the version of Apple Mac Pro SMC Firmware Update, we are posting to the reviews to that software, of course.

And the date and version number are posted in just the same way to your posts as well, not just mine. This is normal and a matter of course, so that people can see when the post was made and to what version of the software they were posting about.

Question: this firmware update installs a piece of software in Applications>Utility. Why? Once the patch has been applied, is it necessary to keep this software, or can it safely be trashed?

Yeah you can just throw out that piece of software once it's successfully updated the firmware. Verify this by going to System Profiler.

But seriously... 1.2MB hanging around on your disk shouldn't be a big concern. ;)

"But seriously... 1.2MB hanging around on your disk shouldn't be a big concern. ;) (8/8/2007, Version: 1.1)"

Not the concern (I've got megabytes up the wazoo). I was thinking about what would happen if I managed to lose the appication (for inst. when I upgrade to Leopard) and whether that would screw my Mac. Guess not.

Yeah, once the firmware is upgraded it doesn't matter what you do with your hard disks (software). Firmware is permanent memory on the motherboard that contains code and instructions. So once it's updated it's permanent and independent of your OS/software.

yeah... um, I'd have to guess that the fans will make the MacBook Pro run cooler, but that would only be a guess since it doesn't actually say "what" fan behavior specifically would be modified.

Cripes! A new level of vagueness. Perhaps next time they won't even mention what the update is for.

Maybe next time it'll just say "Firmware." with no description at all?

It's for the Mac Pro, not the MacBook pro.
