this is just it, the fan speed is controlled completely by the os
if you install an os that has no fan support at all, the fans work at
full speed, and now that's FRIGHTENING!
it happens when you boot from the apple diagnostics disc - the fans
spins frighteningly fast
perhaps you're right though - in cpu intensive tasks i wonder if both
cpu's actually go full bull (?)
