As my CPU cooler fan broke on a setup with older hardware, I had to replace it with a similar fan, which unfortunately is pretty noisy.
I am using the following system:
- Mainboard Gigabyte F2A88X-Up4
- CPU AMD A10-7850k radeon r7
- Debian GNU/Linux 9 (stretch) 64-bit
The fan is permanently running at 3770 RPM and I am looking for a way to manually reduce the speed.
There is an option in the BIOS to set the fan to a "silent" mode, but it does not have any effect.
I then installed
Running the sensors I get the following output:
Adapter: PCI adapter power1: N/A (crit = 95.09 W) it8620-isa-0228 Adapter: ISA adapter in0: +0.70 V (min = +0.00 V, max = +3.06 V) in1: +1.50 V (min = +0.00 V, max = +3.06 V) in2: +2.03 V (min = +0.00 V, max = +3.06 V) in3: +2.05 V (min = +0.00 V, max = +3.06 V) in4: +2.05 V (min = +0.00 V, max = +3.06 V) in5: +2.23 V (min = +0.00 V, max = +3.06 V) in6: +2.23 V (min = +0.00 V, max = +3.06 V) 3VSB: +3.29 V (min = +0.00 V, max = +6.12 V) Vbat: +2.69 V fan1: 3770 RPM (min = 0 RPM) fan2: 0 RPM (min = 0 RPM) fan3: 0 RPM (min = 0 RPM) fan4: 0 RPM (min = 0 RPM) fan5: 0 RPM (min = 0 RPM) temp1: +22.0°C (low = +127.0°C, high = +127.0°C) sensor = thermistor temp2: -8.0°C (low = +127.0°C, high = +127.0°C) sensor = thermistor temp3: +13.0°C (low = +127.0°C, high = +127.0°C) sensor = Intel PECI temp4: +45.0°C temp5: +45.0°C temp6: +45.0°C intrusion0: ALARM radeon-pci-0008 Adapter: PCI adapter temp1: -11.0°C (crit = +120.0°C, hyst = +90.0°C) k10temp-pci-00c3 Adapter: PCI adapter temp1: +0.0°C (high = +70.0°C) (crit = +80.0°C, hyst = +79.0°C)
I then ran the fancontrol configuration script with
hwmon0 is it8620 hwmon1 is k10temp hwmon2 is fam15h_power hwmon3 is radeon Found the following PWM controls: hwmon0/pwm1 current value: 0 hwmon0/pwm2 current value: 0 hwmon0/pwm3 current value: 0 hwmon0/pwm4 current value: 255 hwmon0/pwm5 current value: 255 Giving the fans some time to reach full speed... Found the following fan sensors: hwmon0/fan1_input current speed: 3792 RPM hwmon0/fan2_input current speed: 0 ... skipping! hwmon0/fan3_input current speed: 0 ... skipping! hwmon0/fan4_input current speed: 0 ... skipping! hwmon0/fan5_input current speed: 0 ... skipping!
So I am trying to reduce the speed of
Running the test, which did not stop my CPU fan, I got the following result:
hwmon0/fan1_input ... speed was 3792 now 3750 no correlation No correlations were detected. There is either no fan connected to the output of hwmon0/pwm1, or the connected fan has no rpm-signal connected to one of the tested fan sensors. (Note: not all motherboards have the pwm outputs connected to the fan connectors, check out the hardware database on http://www.almico.com/forumindex.php) Did you see/hear a fan stopping during the above test (n)?
Based on this result I assume that I cannot control my CPU fan with
Or is it possible to write a manual configuration for the fan in
/etc/fancontrol despite the previous output?
I would appreciate your feedback.
