I use windows vista ALOT on my macbook and mac pro, i've noticed on the mac pro, fans never seem to kick in. I'm sure its not to healthy to have ram and cpu temps be very hot.

does anyone know when fan speeds begin to rise on mac pros, and mac books

They should be automatically controlled, I only ever run windows through parallels so I've never noticed. But if your concerned, install Fan Speed, its a windows program. And you can watch temperatures and increase the speed as you see fit.

I'm surprised. When I run windows mine will very quickly start running like a blender.

What software are you running.... rendering video is my main windows job and it sets the fans on crazy in less than 5 minutes... so it may be that whatever your doing just isn't that intensive.
