    Yep, I tried the new KBC, but I had to flash back to the stock one. Why? Because the fan would rotate much more often.

    Up until about 56C the fan will not turn on and that is great. But if I do anything on the computer, the CPU heats up by a few degrees and fan turns on low. It can't cool down CPU by much and it just keeps running for a long time until about 54C, then it turns off. It keeps turning on/off very frequently. There seems to be a small temperature difference between fan on high and fan on low. It keeps oscillating between those two speeds too.

    I think we should still play with temperature thresholds.

    As for GPU, i have ATI 5470 and max temp I ever seen was 65C. The fan is very quiet and it doesn't bother me at all.

    Yes. If you need more smooth speed changing - you definitely need to play with temp thresholds, because now only 2 of them are in "working" range.
    As for me - my i5-460 is completely silent when surfing and running at lowest speed for video playback: actually that is all what I want. But for any, even short, 100% load (eg. antivirus bases update) - it almost instantly goes >66. And then few seconds after load gone it goes back <60.

    Two. One for the GPU and one for the CPU.

    Edit: The T model has only one.

    Yeah but 3820T doesn't have a dedicated GPU so it probably has one fan.

    Hi all, is there currently a modded bios that could turn a 5650 into a 6550?

    works really good so far. but the note becomes a bit warm !

    can you make a version with the following values ?

    TZ0<52 - 0% speed
    52-66 - fan is running at lowest possible speed F0 (lower that is used in original BIOS)
    >66 - not modified.

    this would be nize tia
