Fan Control on Clevo W230

Post by kurut »


I am running Linux Mint Cinnamon 18.3 on Clevo W230 and finally after trying tens of different linux flavors, I am totally satisfied and happy with a Linux distro. The only problem is that fan makes a lot of noise, starts and stops again and again in every few seconds, annoying and distracting me during the work.

I tried thinkfan and lm-sensors but had no results by far now. The weird thing is when I use Ubuntu, I have no fan noise issues, it only happens on Linux Mint Cinnamon. I would like to share my system details but don't know how to do, if needed, please guide me. The motherboard is American Megatrends, bt.w

Also, a program I found below looks like what I need but unfortunately I couldn't run it on LM:

I am desperately in need of your kind help, because after years of trying Linux and failing each time, LM looks like the last and best resort that I can stay and this is my one and only problem with LM.
