Is there any way to control the fans on a Precision M6500? - Page 2
No one knows of a way to control the System and CPU Fans in an M6500?
I've tried a ton of apps and the only one that can even detect the fans is Adia64 (Used to be Everest - http://www.aida64.com/product/aida64...ition/overview ).
I ran Aida's stress test (results attached) and IMHO it appears that the A04 bios fan cooling tune is FAR too agressive in it's attempt to reduce noise. My poor system run's at about 77C under full load while the CPU fan runs at 4000 RPM and the System/GPU Fan runs at 4500 RPM. I believe that both fans should be running wide open.
forget the name, try googling it on here
fangui is awesome
edit, foudnit, ready driver plus, see this old thread http://www.notebookforums.com/thread224117.html
I'm running a M6500 and it is running far too hot at about 72f upon bootup and now, as I watch a HD movie on itunes and type this, it's at 81f (verified with CoreTemp and RealTempGT). This is a work computer so our IT dept has an image they use to configure the system with. Aside from that, I use this for 3d work (modeling and rendering) so the cpu throttles back very quickly when rendering or modeling heavily which is, obviously, not desireable.

...any ideas on what is causing the crazy temperatures? I've even purchased a laptop cooler/stand with a fan but that helps only marginally.
Thank you for your time.
screwdriver to take the machine apart to better clean it. As far as I know, this has never been done.
I did hit the machine with compressed air and it seemed to help a little bit... but when rendering, i'm still hitting 100 and the cpu's still throttle out.
the machine is sitting right in front of an air conditioner and on a laptop stand with an 80mm fan that is moving quite a bit of air. Perhaps I'll pick up some Arctic Silver thermal and a different, and more robust laptop cooler...
Thanks for the help guys ...
