In the past, the fan would kick it up a notch (from the default/base 2000rpm) as early as 60C and for for sure by 70C. Now I'm noticing that it doesn't kick in until around 95C, and even then, it only goes to ~3000rpm.

Is this normal? Did Apple change the temperature threshold settings in the last few updates?

EDIT: I have the Mid-2009 MacBook Pro 13" -- 2.26GHz C2D

I noticed the same thing after upgrading to SL, the fans do kick in much later than before. I use a fan controller to keep the fans running around 3000rpm, and it doesn't get very hot that often as a result.

Thanks. What do you use? SMCfanControl? 'Fan Control'?

I noticed my iMac spins a lot more and stalls sometimes. It also started when I upgraded to snow leopard...
