Dell G7 Fan Controller

Hi,

I bought a Dell G7 15 a while ago from Best Buy. I'd like to know if there are any options for fan control? I tried using the built-in utility in MSI afterburner, but for some reason it would not work. Also, is there a way to up the 30 FPS limit to 60? I don't think it should be locked to 30 FPS for every game, especially not old source games which can easily run on this modern hardware. If I can get rid of these two issues, this would be the perfect laptop for me. Thank you for your time.

There is one option for manually controlling the fan speed that I have found. And it is using a proram called Hwinfo. You just click on the fan in the lower right hand corner. Just make to change the fan re spin to 0 seconds,.

its unneeded there is a conflict of interest in the OS that I found and fixed. there is a preinstalled program from intel that monitors and controls the fan as well as what ever dell is doing to try and fix this. after un installing it the fans kicked right back on.

Please let us know what you uninstalled in order to make it better.

The forum is pretty much exploding with g4/g5/g7 fan control demands since everyone is having issues with them (the two links below are similar to this thread)

I don't know if you are still having a 30 fps issue, but if you plug your laptop into a wall. I have noticed, that the laptop disables the Nvidia gpu when on battery power in order to preserve battery life.

Alienware Command Centre allows you to control the Fan speed.
