    I run smcFanControl sometimes and think it is great. Everyone has an opinion on this, but I like it. It will not void your warranty.

    just running fcp and exporting video and the smart fan seems to be working its not as hot as it is,

    i think its best for stuff like fcp but when using normally then its fine without. but thats my view.

    cheers guys
