I found a post on "How to control the fan speed on my laptop" but nothing about the same thing on a desktop. I'd like to replicate the same thing on my desktop but till now I had not such luck.
I tried to do the same thing on that post, so I followed every step. Unfortunately I got stack in "3. Configure fancontrol" when you execute the command
sudo pwmconfig. I get the following message:
# pwmconfig revision 5857 (2010-08-22) 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. /usr/sbin/pwmconfig: There are no pwm-capable sensor modules installed
So when at the point "4" I execute the command
sudo fancontrol I get:
Loading configuration from /etc/fancontrol ... Error: Can't read configuration file
Is what I'm trying to do even even possible on a desktop computer?
