CPU fan speed/Turning off APM
I have a linux box with a meaty cpu fan that does not need to run at full speed (especially since I'm underclocking), so I set it in the bios to 60% speed.
Problem is, as soon as I boot Fedora the speed shoots up to full again... very very loud.
I cant use any software to control the fan since the sensor wire is on its own on a seperate 3-pin plug to the power wires, and hence cannot connect to the motherboard (any suggestions here would be good as well...) .
So I figure the only option is to disable APM control in Fedora so the bios speed setting takes priority... but I dont have a clue where to start... anyone any ideas?
