Mac & Boot Camp Fan Control
allows you to get detailed information about the fans that are used for cooling Macintosh devices. As the name suggests, it can be used only on the devices that run Windows.
The Macintosh computer owners who want to run Windows as a secondary operating system have the option to use Boot Camp to prepare the program for the OS deployment. This utility allows you to boot in Windows and access all the hardware in order to run apps that do not have Mac versions.
You can use the Fan Control utility when you need to optimize the sound or heat level of key system components. It allows you to control the fan speed directly from Windows and supports the fans from iMacs or MacBook Pro devices.
The interface allows you to view the current temperature for important hardware components such as the hard disk drives, processor and optical drive. The program also supports third party disks by using the Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology (SMART).
You can change the fan speed in order to reduce the generated noise. However, if the values are too low, the components might overheat which might lead to system instability. It is recommended to gradually reduce the speed while monitoring the temperatures.
The program offers the option to display the temperature and fan speed in the system tray in order to keep an eye on the current status of the CPU or hard drive. You can add it to the startup list if you need to run in the background and monitor the temperatures.
If you are running Windows on your Macintosh and need to change the fan speed, Mac & Boot Camp Fan Control can be a useful tool.
