Is it possible to manually control the MBP fans? (I.e., turn them on sooner instead of waiting for 80C+?)
I’ve seen a lot of issues with overheating and thermal throttling and part failures due to heating, and I’d really like to know if there’s a utility or a command line tweak or *something* that would allow me to customize the fans in any way at all.
Ideally, I’d really like to have it set up where the fan turns on to its lowest speed when the computer is on – just to keep air moving – and then they crank up speed as the laptop gets hot.
The current setting, as tested by louis rossman, shows they don’t turn on until 81C/178F and that is just absurd
