    IRL stuff, I apologize.

    There will be a setting in the BIOS where you can alter the fan trigger points.

    For my own personal Ranger , I cut the PWM wire for the GPU side and use the Compal EC to control the CPU fan within HWInfo. If you use the Compal EC you basically lose GPU fan speed altogether so under standard operation its not a viable solution. If the PWM wire is cut, then you are 100% all the time. Which is fine for me since I use headphones and dont hear it at all even with open ear headphones.

    Only one way to flash, instructions should be in the Readme file.

    Alright, so I just flashed using the .readme file, but when I try to POST I'm getting 8 beeps.

    Did I brick my Ranger?
