smcFanControl 1.12

Free (and open source) utility by Hendrik Holtmann that lets you manually adjust the fan controls on MacBooks and MacBook Pros. For safety’s sake, it only lets you make the fans more aggressive than Apple’s default settings — i.e. this is a utility for cooling down your MacBook by turning up the fan.
