never posted at a forum like this but I need help. I have a Dell E7440 with Fedora 25 on it and the fan does not throttle down. The output form
[$] sensors coretemp-isa-0000 Adapter: ISA adapter Physical id 0: +53.0°C (high = +100.0°C, crit = +100.0°C) Core 0: +52.0°C (high = +100.0°C, crit = +100.0°C) Core 1: +53.0°C (high = +100.0°C, crit = +100.0°C) acpitz-virtual-0 Adapter: Virtual device temp1: +25.0°C (crit = +107.0°C) dell_smm-virtual-0 Adapter: Virtual device Processor Fan: 6687 RPM CPU: +52.0°C Ambient: +42.0°C SODIMM: +43.0°C
It is silent when the notebook starts. It turns up correctly when there is higher load. But when the load decreases it does not throttle down until the sensor dellssmvirutal-0 CPU is below +50.0°C. I have read that there is the i8k module and utils to do that manually, but not in f25 anymore.
Question: How do I get my notebook silent?
