I'm using Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. I'm not sure if it is the CPU (i7) fan or the video card fan.
I've tried using lm-sensors & fancontrol
sudo sensors-detect Now follows a summary of the probes I have just done. Just press ENTER to continue: Driver `w83627ehf': * ISA bus, address 0x290 Chip `Nuvoton NCT6776F Super IO Sensors' (confidence: 9) Driver `coretemp': * Chip `Intel digital thermal sensor' (confidence: 9) To load everything that is needed, add this to /etc/modules: # Chip drivers coretemp w83627ehf
Like many people, I'm also getting error:
/usr/sbin/pwmconfig: There are no pwm-capable sensor modules installed
Here is the output of sensors:
# sensors radeon-pci-0100 Adapter: PCI adapter temp1: +71.0°C coretemp-isa-0000 Adapter: ISA adapter Physical id 0: +44.0°C (high = +80.0°C, crit = +98.0°C) Core 0: +44.0°C (high = +80.0°C, crit = +98.0°C) Core 1: +40.0°C (high = +80.0°C, crit = +98.0°C) Core 2: +43.0°C (high = +80.0°C, crit = +98.0°C) Core 3: +42.0°C (high = +80.0°C, crit = +98.0°C)
I'm hoping some-one has already solved this for my configuration because this seems to be a problem for many people and there are many different suggestions.
