    Fan control for G4 15" aluminum PowerBook
    I'm looking for a fan control for G4 15" aluminum PowerBook. I have one for Intel but it won't work on a PPC Mac. Does any one know where I can get one?

    Read the following thread in the Mac Rumors forum, especially post #3. It's an old thread from 2008 but it should offer you some help. Good luck with it and let us know if that works for you. LINK

    Fan control programs are generally psychosomatic aids (at best) and mask genuine problems, making them worse (at worst).

    They are not recommended around here.

    Thanks for the link it worked fine. I lowered mine 12deg by subtracting 3072 from all the numbers. It's easy to save the list and then just copy and paste to other machines.

    <integer>8</integer>
