to anyone with a dell dimension
right. i know what this thread could well turn into, so if you have nothing relavent to post, please dont.
has anyone with a dimension managed to get manual control over the cpu fan, or manage to get a reading on the cpu temp sensor? the fan speeds up of its own accord, when the system is under load for a while, so it is clearly possible.
also, in the 'dell diagnostics' thing that you can boot to, a test can change the speed, so there must be a way, but dell seem to have blocked it. on max, it pulls a LOT of air, so would be good while gaming to keep the whole system cool. (btx case)
anyone know how?
