I've just set up lm-sensors and can detect my cpu temp. I've got an amd64 system and i'm wondering how i can reduce my fans speed manually from inside linux?

Also is there a daemon that can do it for me based to the cpus temp?

I am also trying to find a solution to fan speed adjustment, but in my case I want to crank the fan speed up.

This is for an AMD64 notebook.

Theres a script called "fancontrol" included in the lmsensors package.

Run pwmconfig first to generate a config file (it sets up stuff like min and max temps and the corresponding fan speeds). After that you can tweak the /etc/fancontrol file, but that's probably not neccesary.

I put this in my /etc/conf.d/local.start:

Code:
/usr/sbin/fancontrol & > /dev/null


Which makes it run on startup and not stop until I kill it ;)

fancontrol works beautifully on my machine. My fans(CPU and PS) are quiet and only kick in under heavy load. I added following init script (/etc/init.d/fancontrol)
Code:

start() {
        ebegin "Starting fancontrol"
        start-stop-daemon --start  --background --pidfile /var/run/fancontrol.pid --exec /usr/sbin/fancontrol
        eend $? "Failed to start fancontrol"
}

stop() {
        ebegin "Stopping fancontrol"
        start-stop-daemon --stop --pidfile /var/run/fancontrol.pid
        eend $? "Failed to stop fancontrol"
}

Code:

rc-update add fancontrol default

Here is the my /etc/fancontrol configuration file
Code:

INTERVAL=10
FCTEMPS=*-0290/pwm2=*-0290/temp2_input *-0290/pwm1=*-0290/temp3_input
FCFANS=*-0290/pwm2=*-0290/fan1_input *-0290/pwm1=*-0290/fan2_input
MINTEMP=*-0290/pwm2=45 *-0290/pwm1=45
MAXTEMP=*-0290/pwm2=60 *-0290/pwm1=55
MINSTART=*-0290/pwm2=0 *-0290/pwm1=0
MINSTOP=*-0290/pwm2=0 *-0290/pwm1=0

That is minimum CPU fan speed at 45 degree CPU temperature, maximum CPU fan speed at 60 degree CPU temperature. Similarly minumum Power Supply (PS) fan speed at 45 degree main board temperature, maximum PS fan speed at 55 degree main board temperature.
you can also manually set the fan speeds.
Code:

echo 255 > /sys/bus/i2c/devices/1-0290/pwm1

echo 0 for minimum fan speed, echo 255 for full fan speed. pwm1(first fan) pwm2(second fan).....etc. the above path and configuration file is machine depended.

If you set CPU fan speed to a lower value manually, Cooling may not be enough, resulting overheated and burned CPU. Better use fancontrol script

I don't have the /sys/bus/i2c directory. How can I get that? Is it something that needs to be enabled in the kernel?

Yes, You need to enable
Code:

Device Drivers -->
  I2C Support -->
    <*> I2C Support
    <*> I2C DeviceInterface
      I2C Hardware Bus Support ->
         (Enable Your Bus system)
      Hardware Sensors Chip Support -->
         (Enable whatever sensor chip you have)


You can also enable those as modules for all the chips listed in there if you don't know what chip you have. Then try loading them one at a time to see if it works. lm_sensors does it automatically for you.
Code:

sensors-detect

I just installed lm_sensors but am surprised, that i don't have pwm functionality on my new SN95G5/3.5AMD64/and my GeForce. The thing is, i have to absolutly turn down the GeForce Fan. It is driving me crazy. On full speed all the time. I think it is the Temp3 indicator. But how can i throttle the fan speed now?

Code:
it87-isa-0290
Adapter: ISA adapter
VCore 1:   +1.07 V  (min =  +1.42 V, max =  +1.57 V)   ALARM
VCore 2:   +1.46 V  (min =  +2.40 V, max =  +2.61 V)   ALARM
+3.3V:     +6.53 V  (min =  +3.14 V, max =  +3.46 V)   ALARM
+5V:       +4.87 V  (min =  +4.76 V, max =  +5.24 V)   
+12V:     +11.84 V  (min = +11.39 V, max = +12.61 V)   
-12V:     -20.36 V  (min = -12.63 V, max = -11.41 V)   ALARM
-5V:       -2.56 V  (min =  -5.26 V, max =  -4.77 V)   ALARM
Stdby:     +4.81 V  (min =  +4.76 V, max =  +5.24 V)   
VBat:      +3.04 V
fan1:      907 RPM  (min =    0 RPM, div = 16)         
fan2:        0 RPM  (min =  332 RPM, div = 16)         
fan3:     4963 RPM  (min =  664 RPM, div = 8)         
M/B Temp:    +49 C  (low  =   +15 C, high =   +40 C)   sensor = thermistor   
CPU Temp:    +22 C  (low  =   +15 C, high =   +45 C)   sensor = diode   
Temp3:       +47 C  (low  =   +15 C, high =   +45 C)   sensor = thermistor


Then im asking myself why i cant "modprobe ic2-isa". Maybe this is the problem, that changing Fanspeed doesn't work?

I assume it is a typo, you should modprobe i2c-isa (not ic2-isa)

Well, if your hardware doesn't support PWM. There is no easy way to speed down the fan. You can buy a quiter fan.

I remember seeing a script which emulates the PWM by turning on-off the fan very quickly (which is what PWM does). But can't remember where and what was the name. If you have the functionalty of turning the fan on and off, you can write a simple script to do that.

While this is exactly what PWM does - I would *seriously* advice against implementing this in a script. If your script stops (for whatever reason - and sometimes they do), you could leave a system in a fan off state. Bad move - game over.

To be fair, working with a lot of PWM based robot transmissions, it is always something better implemented in a dedicated controller, which I would hope there is somewhere in the chipset...

Yeah, i never intended to do this. The sad thing is, that the fan can be controlled. I use a utility in Windows to do so. So i know that it could work. I also think, that this regulation of fan speeds belongs into the bios of the mainboard/graphic card and not into a piece of software running on an OS.

It has the same risks as IO chips with built-in PWM (widely used today). your driver or script stops (for whatever reason), you could leave a system in a fan PWM value 0 or not enough for cooling - game over again.

Many of the recent systems (even old systems) uses an IO chip to handle fan speeds and to read-in various sensors. Speed or status of the fan is controlled by the OS throught the ACPI. There are security measures can be taken (like set them to the max when driver stops, lm_sensors's fancontrol script does that). I have been using my system for 3 years now (linux and windoz) without single failure.

I agree a dedicated hardware would be rock-solid but it wouldn't be as customizable. That's why there is ACPI, to manage the hardware more efficiently (especially when power consumption of chips are going sky-rocket). A dedicated hardware can be a backup system on top of the software power management.

An example to the customization is my system. My PS fan sits on top of CPU, So When CPU fan is not enough, I rev-up the PS fan to help cool the CPU. Or If the ambient temperature is already high I don't force the fans as hard. I use an advandced PID feedback system to manage the hardware I have. The program I've written in C++ reads in various sensors such as temperatures, system load..., accept some paramaters such as capacity of the fans, cooling coefficients..., after some calculations it adjusts fan speeds, does CPU throttling..., in an intelligent way such that if There is nothing runing, it slows the CPU, otherwise rev-up fans and even turn-off some hardware not in use. If I am working on the computer or it is night (I am sleeping in the same room) it switches to the quiet mode and so on. It is overkill, but it was a project for just learning things.

Very nice solution guys...

btw, for those who aren't aware, there are mechanical solutions which take up a pci slot's space on the back of your system, and in my case, control the rear chassis fans.

The one I use has three speeds, which I run either on max while compiling, or on low normally. It makes listening to music that much more enjoyable.. ;-)

Okay, a quick tip, something I noticed myself... I kept my box closed, and the fans were running @ 5000RPM, 50/40C (CPU/MB temp). opening up the case and intensive use (HL2, NFSU2), made the temp go up to 45, fans at 4000. Normal use: 35/30 @ 3200 RPM. On a cold day, i got it down to 28/24 C, 3000 RPM. Less noise :wink:

I have brand new Chaintech VNF4 Ultra board with NForce4 Ultra chipset.
In window$ I've tried "SpeedFan" and I was able to control speed of two fans connected to the board. Other two (there's four fan connectors on the board) can not be controled.

But, in gentoo I can't control fans... :cry:

I've done sensors-detect and detected IT8712F, the same one "SpeedFand" detected in window$:
Code:

Maybe, this problem can be solved by using lm_sensors-2.9.1, which you probably have to compile and install by yourself (no ebuild for my arch).

hi all

i have this i2c modules build in the kernel: eeprom i2c-isa it87 i2c-viapro, so i don't modpbore anything!

sensors version 2.9.0 with libsensors version 2.9.0
2.6.11 kernel
CoolerMaster ASBV83 JET 7 with fan control knob that controls fan speeds from my frontal plate

now i want to configure dynamic fan speed so i do:

Code:

omega root # pwmconfig
This program will search your sensors for pulse width modulation (pwm)
controls, and test each one to see if it controls a fan on
your motherboard. Note that many motherboards do not have pwm
circuitry installed, even if your sensor chip supports pwm.

We will attempt to briefly stop each fan using the pwm controls.
The program will attempt to restore each fan to full speed
after testing. However, it is ** very important ** that you
physically verify that the fans have been to full speed
after the program has completed.

Found the following PWM controls:
   0-0290/pwm1
   0-0290/pwm2
   0-0290/pwm3

Found the following fan sensors:
   0-0290/fan1_input     current speed: 3668 RPM
   0-0290/fan2_input     current speed: 3276 RPM
   0-0290/fan3_input     current speed: 0 ... skipping!

Warning!!! This program will stop your fans, one at a time,
for approximately 5 seconds each!!!
This may cause your processor temperature to rise!!!
If you do not want to do this hit control-C now!!!
Hit return to continue:

Testing pwm control 0-0290/pwm1 ...
  0-0290/fan1_input ... speed was 3668 now 3668
    no correlation
  0-0290/fan2_input ... speed was 3276 now 3276
    no correlation

No correlations were detected.
There is either no fan connected to the output of 0-0290/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)? n
...


yes.. i didn't hear anything...

Code:

same...

Code:

....
Testing pwm control 0-0290/pwm3 ...
  0-0290/fan1_input ... speed was 3668 now 3668
    no correlation
  0-0290/fan2_input ... speed was 3276 now 3308
    no correlation

No correlations were detected.
There is either no fan connected to the output of 0-0290/pwm3,
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,

Testing is complete.
Please verify that all fans have returned to their normal speed.

The fancontrol script can automatically respond to temperature changes
of your system by changing fanspeeds.
Do you want to set up its configuration file now (y)? y
What should be the path to your fancontrol config file (/etc/fancontrol)?
/etc/fancontrol does not exist, shall I create it now (y)? y
chown: `root.root' syntax is obsolete; use `:' since this will be removed in the future
Loading configuration from /etc/fancontrol ...

Select fan output to configure, or other action:
1) Change INTERVAL     3) Save and quit
2) Just quit           4) Show configuration
select (1-n): 4

Common Settings:
INTERVAL=10

select (1-n):

omega root #


WTF?? my config is 1 line????

so i decided to make my own config...
here it is:
Code:

omega root # cat /etc/fancontrol
INTERVAL=10
FCTEMPS=*-0290/pwm2=*-0290/temp2_input *-0290/pwm1=*-0290/temp1_input
FCFANS=*-0290/pwm2=*-0290/fan2_input *-0290/pwm1=*-0290/fan1_input
MINTEMP=*-0290/pwm2=38 *-0290/pwm1=40
MAXTEMP=*-0290/pwm2=50 *-0290/pwm1=55
MINSTART=*-0290/pwm2=0 *-0290/pwm1=0
MINSTOP=*-0290/pwm2=0 *-0290/pwm1=0


but running fancontrol doesn't produce any effect on my fans :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :(

Code:

omega root # fancontrol
Loading configuration from /etc/fancontrol ...

Common settings:
  INTERVAL=10

Settings for *-0290/pwm2:
  Depends on *-0290/temp2_input
  Controls *-0290/fan2_input
  MINTEMP=38
  MAXTEMP=50
  MINSTART=0
  MINSTOP=0

Settings for *-0290/pwm1:
  Depends on *-0290/temp1_input
  Controls *-0290/fan1_input
  MINTEMP=40
  MAXTEMP=55
  MINSTART=0
  MINSTOP=0

Enabling PWM on fans...
Starting automatic fan control...


even if i force 0 in pwm1 or pwm2 nothing happened :cry:
Code:

omega root # cat /sys/bus/i2c/devices/0-0290/pwm1
255
omega root # echo 0 > /sys/bus/i2c/devices/0-0290/pwm1
omega root # sensors | grep fan1
fan1:     3590 RPM  (min =    0 RPM, div = 8)
omega root #


This is a campaign in favor of my ears.

Code:

rc-update add fancontrol default


Sorry for the newb question but I don't know how to get this init script working. I made a file called /etc/init.d/fancontrol and copied/pasted your code into that file then I did a
Code:

rc-update add fancontrol default


and I get this error
Code:
#rc-update add fancontrol default
 * fancontrol not executable; skipping
can someone tell me what this means?

To make it executable:

I don't get it... The init script don't work. If I try to start it nothing happens, no error messages, nothing. But if I run /usr/sbin/fancontrol fancontrol starts and works great.

Any hints?

Thnx!
