Controlling fan speed
I am really really sick with my dell inspiron 5160 with its noisy fans almost always turned on :mad: . The fans start kickin even if the cpu temp is 35c-50c range. Generally, when I am using the laptop, the cpu temp is around 55c. I am thinking of changing the fan setting manually so that it won't start until the cpu temp is 60c. Is this a bad idea? Upto what cpu temp its safe to use the laptop without turning on the fans ?
i dont know for laptops but my CPU temp right now is 35°F, it doesnt go above 50°F, ever after a few hours of gaming.
I would say its a bad idea but then again thats me.
Why would you want to do that anyway? Are the fans loud?
Look around the web for better fans. Stock fans are always loud and annoying. And I don't know how easy it would be to find, but for desktops you can get controllers for the fans so that you control their speed.
