    Hi,
    I can't figure out why people keep using the "multiple fan profile" trick in order to set the fan speed according to the core temp.
    There's an "auto" option, managed by a rule, the "auto fan speed control rule"
    Unfortunatelly, i don"t know how to set this rule.
    Tried several things, none worked :/
    I searched for tips but i found nothing :(
    Any help?
    Am i wrong, is that "auto" thing not working?

    Regards,
    Fred.

    Try to read context help for auto rule parameters window. It is locked by default to prevent noobs ignoring documentation from editing it blindly.

    yes, i did set autofanspeedcontrol to 3
    But when i tried to modify the rule, it's not working.
    I mean i don't know how to set the " t min, t range, t operating, t low limit and t high limit"

    Restart RT after setting AutoFanSpeedControl to 3, enable low-level fan control (if it is not enabled yet) and select auto fan speed control mode. After that the parameters can be edited by double clicking them.

    I've small note to

    You can. Just keep in mind that these are degrees C are read from different temperature sensor comparing to one you see in RivaTuner and nTune by default. ADT uses external fan sensor as input for temperature based fan speed control. But you may switch RivaTuner to display core temperqature using this sensor by selecting ADT7473 plugin as data provider of "Core temperature" graph.
