smcFanControl lets the user set a minimum speed for built-in fans. It allows you to increase your minimum fan speed to make your Intel Mac run cooler. In order to not damage your machine, smcFanControl does not let you set a minimum speed to a value below Apple's defaults.

Installing it using Homebrew & Cask

Make sure you have both Homebrew and Cask installed. You'll find intructions to install both tools on their respective websites.

After installing Homebrew and Cask, run:

$ brew cask install smcfancontrol

After that you'll be able to use Spotlight to launch smcFanControl normally. :-)
