some of you may have read my post about overclocking a 366mhz clamshell ibook...well i loved that machine so much that when my old laptop kicked the bucket i went out and bought a brand new 1.33ghz ibook g4 :P . i'm a bit paranoid more than anything else, but i dont like how hot the book runs even on reduced processor speed setting (my last laptop died due to a temperature spike up to 120*C :blink: ). is there any utility that will control the ibook's fan? I'd like it to turn on before the 70*C (i think) that its set to turn on at out of the box...i'm pretty good with linux, so if it happens to involve recompiling a module or something of the sort i may be able to get it done...anyone know anything about this?
i dont care for changing the speed...just the temperature at which the fan turns on...i know some dell laptops' fans are controllable with a utility, i was just wondering if there was such a creature for the ibook. i've read about kernel modules for linux on the ibook, but i wanted something for os x
