Hello - just downloaded this new application to control my fan speed for my Macbook Pro as I noticed its temperature sky rocketing sometimes for seemingly no reason. My question is does smcFanControl update the temperature display at the top of the screen automatically on a Mac?

I sorted it myself - just quit the application and then relaunch it

what if you have to manually manage the fan speed?

Yes you can do that it goes like this (On a Mac) :

-> Open Preferences & select your fan
-> There's a scroll bar that allows you specify the speed of each fan
-> Select 'Save' to apply your changes.
