Re: Fan control (and power-saving in general) on Dell Inspiron Studio 153x
I used earlier a HP laptop with a powerful (and old) amd processor.
If it was on many hours, it overheated so that the inner control mechanism
suddenly shut off the whole thing...
I think that it is better if the fan is used too much than too little.
