    Late 2013 MBP 15" I7 2.3 Ghz 16 GB Ram 500 GB SSD Retina
    Modern MacBook Pro
    Hi everyone. My name is Pat and I am new to the forum and new to Mac's. I have a been a long time Intel user for many years. First Mac I have owned.

    I think I have a simple question that has probably been worked over so a simple yes no is probably in order. I purchased the MBP 13 inch machine with the 2.7 GHz I7 processor.

    Is is necessary to use a third party controller to manage the fan speed on this unit? Will doing so (REALLY) extend the life of the computer components?

    I wouldn't bother to install a third party controller. Your mac will take care of itself. It will shut off if it gets too hot.
