    When the temperature is too high (dangerously high) the fans should be running full blast. That should be a given - a non tamper-able override. Fan profiles should only be tweaking what happens at lower temperatures.

    For safety purposes you could have lower limits for the fan speeds at various temperatures - kind of like the SOA (safe operating area) we use for semiconductors.

    You could (and should) start beta testing whether fan speed detection works reliably on various models. Maybe some test speed buttons - like 500, 1000, 1500, max RPM, and users tell you if it works on their model. You don't have all the models, so this would be a nice way to get some data on the ones you don't. Please include instructions for how to give you feedback (contact info, EC dumps, etc.).

    I have packed my mom at the postal office, ready to ship off, also awaiting to pay 50$ to betatest the fan-control app at my own risk. Joke aside - I'm a developer/programmer and technician myself for 25 years, I am monitoring the cpu/gpu temps on a second and third alert-notification, so if your beta fails I wont burn either (the 50$ was no joke though).

    ULTRA ALPHA ONLY FOR TESTING

    - Please make sure you have latest MSV Runtimes: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=48145

    Download:
    http://obsidian-pc.com/LaptopTools.zip

    VERY IMPORTANT
    LaptopTools folder NEEDS to be moved to C:\Program Files\
    So from now on everything will be inside C:\Program Files\LaptopTools\

    Please Report - ALWAYS start report by saying "My laptop model is XXXXXX" and i have Control Center installed/Not Installed"
    Stuff i need feedback:

    - Uninstall Control Center first for better feedback
    - Tell me if your keyboard hotkeys still works
    - How does it look with scaled visualization and LCDs above 1080p
    - Does the Volume for headphones work?
    - Does your headphones work without Control Center (Even after a Windows Sleep/Wake) ?
    - I invite you to play around with the "Branding" contents and make the app look different (share your results)

    Stuff i DO NOT need feedback:
    - 3 TOP shortcuts are disabled (Updater / Fan Control / Keyboard LED) do not report about those
    - Wifi ON/OFF is not detecting current state --- still working on that --- do not report it
    - Even if you select "Start Hidden" it always popup! - I know, it was on purpose while on BETA

    Ok, so quick question cause the model numbers don't make things easy.
    PA71EP6 does this include PA71EP6-G? i can never easily find info on the differences. cool new UI btw.

    My laptop model is P750-DM2G and I have CC installed, but not running (all Clevo stuff is disabled).
    The volume slider did not initially affect the volume at all for me - it started working after I clicked 'sound settings'. I've not been able to reproduce this since.
    The headphones jack on my machine has never worked for me - not sure why; I tend to plug into the line out instead. As such, I don't find myself able to test this. I assume some part of the RealTek HD software is responsible for messing with me.
    The label for the headphones volume gets cut off at 'are' for me until I resize the panel to >890 pixels wide.
    Brightness slider is working.
    Display looks fine on the 4K panel in this unit.
    Nothing shown in the Power/Support/Widgets tabs.
    Keyboard hotkeys seem to be working for me.

    I'm not convinced that the '...' is a good label for the start/battery settings tabs.

    If I can, I'll test it tomorrow or the weekend.
