smcFanControl 2.2.2 working fine on my 09 Mac Pro. What version were you trying?

smcFanControl 2.2.2 Does work on the 09 Mac Pro, however the PCI and PS fans are bumped to over 1000rpm as stated above. Removing the app and resetting the SMC does not seem to return the fans back to their original speed of around 650rpm. The only way round this issue that I have found is to reinstall OS X, are their any other ways besides this?

Did you guys solve this problem? If not here’s the solution. I was pretty pissed after reading your comments and having the same problem on my MP3,1/2008. So I searched for the plist-File which is located inside ./Library/Preferences (->com.lobotomo.MacProFan.plist). You can easily edit the base speed using a plist-editor like Apple’s Property List Editor or such. I reduced back to 600rpm and all was well ;)

I just installed smcFanContol 2.3 on my MacPro1,1 which I think was built around 2008 and is a 2 x 3 quad core intel xeon. Contrary to your statement, it DEFINITELY works on my Mac Pro tower and I’ve got the fans running now at 1,200 RPM and the temperature has reduced from 108ºF to 93ºF already! So I guess the version you were commenting on was earlier and perhaps didn’t work on MPs. But the app does now AND per the website, 2.3 works on Lion! I see your post was in 2009. It’s 2012 now so things have changed I guess.

Just installed SMC Fan control. It has successfully lowered the fan speed and noise on my early 2009 Mac Pro tower.
