MacFan works very well here. Mac Pro 2008-ish, the first quad-core (2x2cores) generation. As per the readme file, the PSU doesn't work.
I noticed this bug:
Once set to a certain speed by MacFan, reverting the speed to something lower didn't work. The program displayed the positive message:
Setting Fan RPM to 500 OK!
however running the program with no options displayed current fan still at 2700(ish, max speed). This applies for all fan, except PSU, I didn't mess with PSU. As of writing, fans are still going fast, current speeds are
2257 2758 1983 597
Also noticed how fan 3 was set (like 1 and 2) at 500 yet is at 2000?
Waiting longer didn't change anything.
Of course rebooting would fix it, except I'm looking for an on-line solution. I don't particularily enjoy rebooting to fix simple things =/.
Speaking of PSU fan earlier…
Is the fix ready yet? :O
Quad-core Mac pro, 2008? 1st gen.
Using MacFan version .05 build 11.3.2009.4
By the way I'm impressed on how this program is simple and just works. I only need to fire a cmd line and change the settings I want and BOOM done! No slow GUI, no fetching far, just type in a few magic words and BOOM. Syntax is simple, good job.
Oh, yeah. Forgot. If you ever have the time and need some suggestions for future updates, here goes.
Display temperature as a 2 columns list instead of 1. The cmd line and my displays don't display well all the temps, but there's enough space for a 2 columns for sure.
Refreshing temps values a lil faster could be nice. 10 is a lil long. 3 or 5 seconds would be perfect.
I know you could get sued for it, but having the option to absolutely control the fans would be way awesome. Include a gigantic disclaimer and the need to manually enable this option and you should be fine. Remember those are suggestions only.
Possible minimalist GUI? As a stand-alone program (w/ exception of settings in a registry file).
That's it for now. Suggestions.
