  • Software solution to noise problems such as those caused by iMac HDD replacement, or overheating problems like those found on a MacBook Pro
  • Set any constant value to any fan (e.g., minimum)
  • Control fan speed in relation to a temperature sensor (e.g., 3rd party HDD)
  • Real-time monitoring of Mac's fans speed and temperature sensors including 3rd party HDD/SSD (using S.M.A.R.T.)

Saved my 2010 15-inch MacBook Pro! I was overheating to the point of shutdown, but my fans remained at idle speed at all times, even after SMC and NVRAM resets.. Macs Fan Control worked beautifully with High Sierra and Snow Leopard (dual-boot disk). The app lets you monitor the temperature of all sensors (MBP 6.2 has 12) and then control the fan speeds. The app allowed me to discover that the GPU diode temp sensor was only working intermittently, which likely explains why the SMC stopped controlling the fans. Now I can control each fan independently with a working sensor of your choosing or set them manually. The app also lets you revert to auto mode, which returns control to the SMC, which is of no use in my case. On a side-note, I also found that replacing the thermal grease on the GPU and CPUs helped a lot (used Arctic MX-4).

GREAT! App, works fine on my iMac, Bootcamp with Win10. But how can I control the fans on LINUX! Too? Perhaps, the programmer will bring a linux Version too, I Hope so, please. greets JOEL Kind

Fantastic, this is a godsend to my early 2008 MacBook Pro, keeps it running at a temperature that is manageable

Great for free, every diagnostic possible, will even change the speeds of your fan to see how much noise each fan makes. I used this software to ramp up all fans and see which one was making a ticking noise and failing. My optical drive fan was failing so I replaced it, after this software had told me which fan it was. Thanks saved me a lot of work

Great for monitoring temps and fan speeds, and blasting the fans at full speeds for a few seconds whenever my late-2013 15" MacBook Pro gets over 60˚C - which somehow isn't a reason for the fans to ramp up from idle.
