Should mention this is for doing fan profiles, but, you can just change the fan, check box to apply at windows startup, click save, click apply and then click ok, click ok to exit Enjoy!
Doesn't a fan actually automaticly load to 100% if it is needed? And if no, can it not hurt the laptop if it does?

You can up it to 100% if you like. I would expect it to be loud. In terms of hurting the laptop, well, it's really hard to tell. I usually go for 65-70% or so for fan speed, because, I find temps are good but depending on your temps and issue at hand, you might need to go higher than that

If it helps and you don't mind the noise, go for it!

Guys, relax. True, had he downloaded AB, he would've seen the fan controls and he should've mentioned the temps in the first place, however, he also asked about RV in the title, so, should've stuck to that until finding more information. I think you guys should agree to disagree

YOU COMPLAINED ABOUT STUTTERING AND "SMOOTHNESS" NOT A HEAT ISSUE.

I was trouble shooting for you.

Plus, if you had downloaded afterburner, like i told you in the first place you would had seen the VERY OBVIOUS fan control on it.
You did not explain me how to get it to work or what to do with it, unlike Bigfan did with Riva Tuner.

A simple, "thank you but it's not what i'm looking for" would have easily sufficed.

But no apparently all the trouble shooting, which I did for HIM, makes my advice useless...

That's the only reason im even remotely angry.

You wanted to know about "smoothness" and "stuttering issues". I was helping with those, you didn't even say anything about heat problems in your OP.

Lol at REMOTELY angry. But listen my dear, my topic had actually another meaning than occured. I wanted to have very good Riva tuner settings for things like pixel version and mipmap. Besides, I said on page 1 that it was an heat issue.
