E5430 Fan Control Problem

Jump to solution

well, after reading all the E5430 models that had CPU fan control problems and overheating, i solved it for my issue. had A18 updated to A21 bios (no help), but I did find a trick with FanSpeed. 

It worked... low and behold.. it worked.. if you need screenshots and a little help.. no worries.. ps. don't overdue the adjustments. just add a fan control and enable auto fan and you can see the CPU temps drop by 20 degrees C and average 30-40 instead of 55-60... 

DELL - laptop cpu fan control - when fans don't seem to work Published: Monday, April 29, 2019 written by Drew Jackson (0)

 

it works!! so here is the trick,
 
install the updated BIOS
install the Chipset
install the Management Info Packages
 
then install Speed Fan. if you have all the chipset and management info installed, then Speed Fan can identify the motherboard and CPU and other thermals and figure out how to help you control the CPU and other fans on the computer. 
 
it took me a while to get it to work until I realized the chipset info and management info files had to be installed so speed fan can sense the motherboard and cpu, and other sensors on the unit.
 
once installed, go to configure  and fan control, add a fan, select Pmw1 on the CPU, and then let the auto fan setting just do its job. you can feel the fan start to pulse, and then you don't have to change much after that. it was a bit tricky to figure out, but my CPU core temps dropped 20 degrees Celsius.
 
 
use to be under Mountain Computers handle, but last year closed my Dell DFS account and that shut down everything, so had to start a new account to share a few things learned..
