Default Fan speed is apparently always at 30%? - 12-28-2012, 14:05 | posts: 95

I use an HP DV6. And am on Leshcat's 12.11 Enduro drivers :V

Something I noticed while using GPU-Z to check temps, is that my fan speed is always 30%?

I am asking because if this IS actually true, I would like to increase the speed so as to reduce temperatures, which is usually around 80* above in games like Far Cry 3 and Dishonored, which causes quite a bit of noise, and makes the laptop really hot to touch >>;
I am guessing this is untrue because I can definitely hear the fan speed increasing while playing games, then decreasing as I quit the game.
