I have a MacBook from a few years back. When I use it write some code and browse the internet, the fans go very fast and the noise is horrible. But the temp shows only 70 C.
So I used SMC to force the fans to 3000rpm. I really don't mind frying my MacBook as long as its quiet. Now instead of the temp rising to 90 C or more (what I want!), my MacBook decides to lower the cpu clock to 0.8 Ghz. And it becomes completely useless. I can't even use one program at a time. Even the mouse cursor lags.
What can I do? Can I force the CPU clock?
Model: A1286 i7 2.0 Ghz (High Sierra) Early 2011
edit: i don't even want a turbo boost or anything (would be nice). i just want to use the 2 Ghz and not only 0.8 Ghz.
