Possible to set temp threshold for fan? (NP900X4B)

Postby isene » 08/09/2012, 8:51

I would like the fan to be turned off (silent) until the CPU temperature reaches 60 degrees C. Is this possible?

My current solution is to issue the command "samsung-tools -c silent" when the fan turns on (which it does pretty often.

I could write a cron job for a script that checks the temperature and issues that command unless the temperature is above the threshold. But is there a better, simpler, more permanent solution?

As for now, I run this script from my .xsession upon login:

Code: Select all

#!/bin/sh
while true; do
      if [ `cat /sys/class/thermal/thermal_zone0/temp` -lt 65000 ]; then
            samsung-tools -q -c silent
      fi
      sleep 5
done
