I just installed the TVicPortInstall41.exe, unchecked the boxes like you said, and ran the TPFanControl.exe, all from the TPFanControl4w520.zip. seems to work fine so far.
while using v0.62, I've noticed that the fan will randomly switch to smart mode even when at low temp from manual 7, so I got the w520 version today. I have a few questions if anyone could help me with answers:
- Does the w520 have no temp sensors on anything but CPU? my TPFC only shows a temperature for CUP and 0 for everything else. occasionally a random sensor report 11C, 80C or some random number for a sec, and more rarely 179C. the 179C hasn't occurred to the CPU yet (only seen 11C once), but i'm worried it might screw things up
I've never encountered this issue with the TPFC v0.62
- So I've seen the glitch with hibernate while on battery. Does using BIOS mode help prevent this issue? or do i just have to turn TPFC off?
- When i use manual mode, I always set it at 7 fanspeed, occationally 64 during intense gaming (cup temp never went over 78). doesn't this defeat the purpose of exiting to smart/bios mode at 80C as stated in the .ini? or should i just leave it alone and use smart mode cool?
i'm beginning to think maybe i should switch back to v0.62....
