• CPU Fan Not Working


    Sorry, I’m new here. But for some reason my CPU fan speed is not variable and does not respond to changes in CPU temp.

    Cheers! I don't know what I'm talking about!

  • Check you BIOS settings. There’re mobos where you can fix the fan speed, or set it to be controlled by the temperature fluctuations. I don’t think it’s OS dependant (but I might be wrong).

    Cheers!

  • @Fedorai-Zomakaja is it overheating? what are you using to check the temps?

    like karasu says check the bios make sure everything is set correctly.

  • @karasu I checked the BIOS and “Smart Fan Control” is turned on.

    @megaman Yes, it is overheating, and I am using:

    sensors
    

    to test the temps.

    Also, I have run the following to control my fan speed and make a /etc/fancontrol file

    pwmconfig
    

    and my /etc/fancontrol looks like

    Configuration file generated by pwmconfig, changes will be lost
    INTERVAL=10
    DEVPATH=hwmon1=devices/platform/it87.2576
    DEVNAME=hwmon1=it8720
    FCTEMPS=hwmon1/device/pwm1=hwmon1/device/temp1_input
    FCFANS=hwmon1/device/pwm1=hwmon1/device/fan1_input
    MINTEMP=hwmon1/device/pwm1=20
    MAXTEMP=hwmon1/device/pwm1=60
    MINSTART=hwmon1/device/pwm1=150
    MINSTOP=hwmon1/device/pwm1=0
    MAXPWM=hwmon1/device/pwm1=255
    

    But when I look at my hwmon folder I get a weird infinite loop and I wonder if this could be the problem. Example Video

    Thanks for any assistance!

  • @Fedorai-Zomakaja that is a interesting loop thing going on. maybe someone else who knows more can add to this but i dont think Antergos would be causing these issues. never had this reported before that i have seen and mine is running at regular temps.

    maybe check to see if your case is getting enough air or do like i do and just take the case side off :)

  • @megaman Thanks for your help.
    And will do. :)
