Debian/Linux fan control tools....

post #1 of 5

There doesn't seem to be much in the way of Linux OC tools, and I could really use a fan control utility. Ideally one the kicks in upon boot. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Hello:D

I got the bitfenix recon fan controller, it can take up to 5 fans and temp sence and it got really loog cables and they are black. It looks cool and never got any problems with it. One thing that is really awesome is you can remote your fans over your phone tablet or what you got. I think it's the best fan controller, i have got, before i bought the bitfenix recon i had the NZXT Sentry 2 LCD Fan Control. But i must say that, the Bitfenix recon is much better than the NZXT i think.

Hope you find the right one for you! thumb.gif

That looks pretty cool. I hadn't even considered using an installed component. I don't have the space for it, but maybe I can find a smaller one.

If anyone else needs Linux PWM control, LM-Sensors can work. I struggled with it for a weekend before giving up and contacting the lm-sensors guys. They were very helpful in getting me set up. Now my Linux/Mint machine runs silent until temps throw it into full throttle. One thing that threw me off was, that Asus 4pin fan headers are not PWM (thanks Asus), they are voltage controlled. Only the CPU header is actually PWM controlled, and will work with lm-sensors.
