Just a heads up, I own a PC and laptop repair and servicing company so I always make sure my machines are clean. ;-) Here's the latest after having been busy moving into a new place and working a bunch of hours...
I have a snippet from dmesg.
ACPI: Fan [FAN1] (off)
thermal LNXTHERM:01: registered as thermal_zone0
ACPI: Thermal Zone [THZN] (77 C)
acpi device:02: registered as cooling_device3
When I searched for 'fan' in the kernel config file I found:
# CONFIG_RCU_FANOUT_EXACT is not set
That's it. It would appear that it is built in. Btw, since I have installed ksensors and have both the acpitz and the k10 sensors set 'ideal' to 130 degrees and 'max' at 145 degrees. (obviously Fahrenheit) So far, so good but I was seeing temps up to 153 degrees before it appeared that the settings actually stuck. I will continue to monitor it and, if all continues to go well, I will set this thread as solved...
I appreciate the help.
