NOTE: If your system
does not support thermal settings, then the Thermal Management feature
is not available.
Command | Power Manager
allows you to
manage your system’s processor and cooling fan settings so that you
can manage performance, system surface temperature, and fan noise.
Each option represents a different balance of these three elements.
Choose the configuration that best suits the way you use your system.
CAUTION: If a fan has failed, the Thermal Management feature
Balances performance, noise, and temperature.
Cooling fan speed is raised to maintain a cooler
system surface temperature. Your system may produce more noise and
experience reduced performance.
Cooling fan and processor speeds are lowered to
reduce fan noise. This configuration may also reduce system performance
and raise system surface temperature.
Both processor and cooling fan speeds are increased
to produce higher system performance. This configuration may also
produce more noise and higher system surface temperature.
Additional thermal setting options may be available
through your operating system. Click
Control Panel in the
Operating System Power Plan box in
the upper right of the
Thermal Management page.
