I like to keep my machines fairly cool, especially the hard drives. I found my iMac and particularly my MBP ran hotter than I liked. I am using a utility called 'smcFanControl' to bump up the minimum speed on my fans so they keep things a bit cooler.

This does mean a bit more noise, there's always a tradeoff... They are still very quiet, but I can just hear the difference in a quiet room.

Do be careful with things like that, of course. Don't want to accidentally go the OTHER way...
