NAME

pwmconfig - tests the PWM outputs of sensors and configures fancontrol

SYNOPSIS

pwmconfig

DESCRIPTION

pwmconfig searches your sensors for pulse width modulation (PWM) controls, and test each one to see if it controls a fan on your motherboard. Note that many motherboards do not have PWM circuitry installed, even if your sensor chip supports PWM.

It attempts to briefly stop each fan using the PWM controls. It then attempts to restore each fan to full speed after testing. However, it is very important that you physically verify that the fans have been returned to full speed after the program has completed.

WARNING

This program will stop your fans, one at a time, for approximately 5 seconds each. This may cause your processor temperature to rise. Verify that all fans are running at normal speed after this program has exited.
