Fan Control on 2007 iMac

Postby bakere01 » Sat Nov 24, 2012 2:19 am

Hi all. Recently switched over to Mint and am having a blast working around as it has been nearly flawless. So that's great. Anyway, (doting aside) I was wondering if anyone knew of a way that I could control the internal fans in my iMac. It has a small problem with overheating. I would love to be able to keep it cool under the heavy load of my constant tinkering. Haha. Thanks in advance for any suggestions. (I hope this is the right place for this. My apologies if it isn't.)

[Edit] your original post and add [SOLVED] once your question is resolved.

“The people are my God” stressing the factor determining man’s destiny lies within man not in anything outside man, and thereby defining man as the dominator and remoulder of the world.

The above is unlikely to work due to Apple's proprietary fan hardware.

Maybe try these, which may or may not be maintained and may or may not work: ... ctel-utils
