This is due to a spec of the adm1030 chip. To avoid switching on and off
the fan, it does not stop before reaching 5 degrees below its starting
point. That's why I use 52. On my ibook it's quite easy to go below 47.
Unfortunately, this is not accessible in the chip parameters.

On osx, I guess they use software control of the chip and stop the fan
earlier. This should be possible here (on the model of Colin's
therm_adt7...), but I prefer not to use my cpu for this.
