    Are there any way to have the Clevos have better fan control than default? As it is now, the fans ramp up very high very fast when gaming, and can barely sit in the room with the computer on.

    Which model do you have? There are some software options depending on that. By and large, the fan behavior is controlled by the EC firmware, there's not a lot of room for fine tuning.

    You might want to check the interior if you haven't already, too (clean out debris and/or repaste if needed).

    It's a Clevo P870TM1-G (with 8700K & GTX 1080). Bought from ClevoCenter with Prema BIOS. It's delidded, lapped and prepped with LM.

    It's not dusty whatsoever.

    check your clevo control center, is the fan curve set to automatic or overclock? also, what kind of temps are you hitting on cpu and gpu?

    We all has this issue, you have to get used to it, this is a small price for the performance. I got use to it after few weeks and my wife the same. If you have a good cooling pad it will reduce the fans spinning speed and the noise.

    Or he can try Obsidian fan tool. Sometimes it’s out as short time beta. Otherwise you have to pay for it.

    I tried to download CC2 yesterday, but I constantly got .NET error when trying to launch it. Not sure how to solve it. :-(

    Also bought and tried OBSIDIANS tools, and while they are far better, I'm having trouble to settle on a nice profile.

    If I were to trade fan noise for heat, what are the critical temps for GPU/CPU to throttle?

    for GPU since Pascal: basically room temp :D ull need to keep the GPU below 40ish iirc to avoid throttling altogether, otherwise it will slowly downclock incrementally. aside from that, anything below 90C for short term and below 80C for long term is fine.

    for CPU standard throttle point is at or above 95C, but on 9th gen u can adjust up to 119C shutoff with 115C throttle temp :)
