Fan Control Software

Hi :slight_smile:,

just an info for all:
Tamtamhero wrote some code in his fan control software fw-fanctrl for the Framework 16 - see
Github PR Add AMD support by TamtamHero 路 Pull Request #21 路 TamtamHero/fw-fanctrl 路 GitHub
and the Github Issue [Feature] Support for Framework 16 路 Issue #20 路 TamtamHero/fw-fanctrl 路 GitHub
for more info.

We are in the last code testing phase and i assume the PR will get merged in the next couple days.

Also this brings in support for the Framework 13 AMD version.

Greetings

You guys may want to look into CrosEC, specifically this thread.
If you鈥檙e comfortable with working with the EC it won鈥檛 be too hard! Unfortunately, I don鈥檛 believe there鈥檚 any dedicated software on Win yet.

Those who must add the program are the framework team.

I don鈥檛 want to change the default fan curve, but I do want the ability to hit a button and toggle the fans to 100%. Is this something that software can do?

Sadly no.

But you could just make a keyboard shortcut in your Window Manager, which runs ectool fanduty 100. You need the tool ectool. Archbased Distros get it from AUR package fw-ectool-git.

You can also reset the fan setting with ectool autofanctrl on.
