You can do that, but really there is no reason to. Not, unless you want to help Intel test their latest iasl.

Ok. I patched my new dsdt (update to F.30 BIOS) following your new guide step by step (avoided the iASL compiler update).
I will proceed to a fresh new install and I'll let you know the results.
Thanks!

It works, so it is safe. I've been testing this for more than a month.

I'm testing my new fresh clean install and I noticed that now the fan is very noisy and it starts with no reason.. for example I just stay in the desktop screen without doing anything and it starts.
It seems always powered on (it never stop).
In the DSDT patching procedure I selected the "All (standard screens, quiet fan)" section.
Suggestions, please?
Thanks!

Make sure you are using the DSDT that you think you are... Look at:
Code:
#in terminal
bdmesg | grep -y dsdt

Then compare your dsdt size as seen by Chimera (above) vs. the size of the one you patched.

This is the result:

Read HFS+ file: [hd(0,2)/Extra/DSDT.aml] 145914 bytes.
Read HFS+ file: [hd(0,2)/Extra/DSDT.aml] 145914 bytes.
FADT: Using custom DSDT!
FADT: Using custom DSDT!

And I checked, is the same size!

Is there a way to check that everything is gone ok?
Thanks!

You could look at the DSDT (in MaciASL) and see if you see the fan control stuff... (search for FTAB).
Also, you could look at your temperatures to see if it makes sense for the fan to be running (above 50C).
When you do a fresh install, the system is busy for a while (Spotlight indexing mostly).
Run Activity Monitor to see what the computer is doing...

CPU temperature is around 40 degrees and the fan is at 4200 rpm.
Is that ok?
Thanks!

Not really. What does this show?

Code:
# in terminal
ls -l /System/Library/Extensions | grep -y acpipoller

Also check to see ACPIPoller.kext is loaded in Kext Wizard -> Loaded (search for acpipoller).

Also check in Console to see if ACPIPoller.kext is loaded. Search for acpipoller... you should see:
Code:
Dec 21 19:28:41 localhost kernel[0]: ACPIPoller: Version 2012.1102 starting

Where time/date corresponds to when you last booted your laptop.
