Hi,

I'm using 'tpfan-admin' on a Lenovo R500 ThinkPad. I would like to compare/discuss the fan control config with other users. I'm happy to post more details of my config and experience if there are any takers...

ThinkPad R500 spec:
Code:
- Intel Core 2 Duo P8700 2.53 GHz / 1066 MHz Front Side Bus / 3 MB-L2-Cache
- 4 GB PC3-8500 DDR3-SDRAM 1066 MHz
- 320 GB SATA, 5.400U/min
- ATI Mobility Radeon 3470 mit 128MB RAM
'tpfand.conf':
Code:
#
# tp-fancontrol configuration file
#
# Options:
# enabled = [True / False]
# override_profile = [True / False]
# hysteresis = [hysteresis temperature difference]
# interval_speed = [fan speed for interval mode]
# interval_duration = [duration of fan rotation in interval mode]
# interval_delay = [delay between fan rotations in interval mode]
#
# Trigger point syntax:
# [sensor-id]. [human readable sensor name] = [temperature]:[fan level] ...
# [fan level] = 0: fan off
# [fan level] = 1: interval cooling mode
# [fan level] = 255: hardware controlled cooling mode
# default rule is used for all unspecified sensors
#
# override_profile = True has to be specified before profile parameters
# or trigger points are changed in the configuration file.
# tpfand may regenerate this file at any time. Custom comments will be lost.
#

enabled = False
override_profile = True
