This Mac Mini is about three months old and until yesterday, temperature had been fine and fan had been quiet. Yesterday I noticed the temperature reported by "Temperature Monitor" software ( showed more than 60 degrees C (normal is about 42 degrees C). I shut down and reset SMC. The result is high fan speed, but temperature about normal. I reset SMC again, but no change. What's up with this high fan speed?

Mac mini, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)
