Hai again,

I have an iMac, and it gets Uber hot when I do renders with Lightwave. I found an application called SMC Fan Control, but it didn't work. So then I downloaded iMacFanControl, and that worked, TO MUCH. It made my fans go nuts, it said they were at 3000 rpm, and my usual is 999. It wouldn't stop, so I uninstalled, and my problems went away. Is there any other way to keep my iMac cool? I can literally heat up my hand on the top of my Mac.

... If one falls flat on their face, at least they were moving in the right direction...

QUOTE Thanks
