    is Fan Control the only tool with a beta at the moment? I wouldn't mind a license in exchange for beta testing : P

    But really, didn't see any of the other tools listed as having betas but maybe I missed it. Would be glad to play around with one if they do indeed.

    Beta is now open, you can simply install Fan Control and it will work.
    Download the installer:
    https://code.obsidian-pc.com/FanControlSetup.zip
    (make sure it is working on your system)

    Then follow this instruction to test the latest BETA:

    Download the latest BETA: https://johnkeelnas.com/files/FanControl_2019_02_11.zip

    How to test:
    Exit Fan Control
    Do CTRL+ALT+DEL > Go to "Services Tab" > Search for ClevoService > Right Click it and "Stop" it > Dont close this window yet
    Extract downloaded files and replace the ones you have at C:\Program Files\FanControl\
    Go back to the Services Tab in the Task Manager and start "ClevoService" again
    Open FanControl.exe

    INFO ABOUT THE BETA:

    *RAMPING TAB:

    Instead of the old ramping tab you can now have 3 different ramping values according to temperature
    (More ramping = faster fan RPM increase or decrease)
    (More ramping = more "ping-pong" effect, you will notice the fan RPM jumps)
    So i recommend using a lower ramping value for lower temperatures, so that RPM transitions are smooth. Use a faster ramping on higher temperatures so that the RPM can quickly catch up to temperature rises.

    *FAN Amount Optimization
    By properly selecting the amount of fans that your system has we avoid unnecessary code routines

    *Advanced tab was reported in the previous BETA, i´m still waiting for feedback :(
    Basically it includes new options to increase fan RPM according to:
    - Device LOAD (use this as an anticipation option, by starting to increase the fan on load you can think of it as a prediction that the temperature will also rise).
    - Unified Cooling - For unified coolers you can now sync fans to the hottest device RPM or manually tune it to transfer a percentage to the other fan(s)

    When this beta ends it will be official released along with up to 4K scaling.

    Hi @John@OBSIDIAN-PC,
    1) Can I just reinstall from FanControlSetup.zip to rollback to stable version if I try Fan Control beta ?
    2) Do I need to rollback to stable version after Fan Control beta ends?

    You dont need to rollback, you can keep using that beta and it will autoupdate to latest stable when it´s out.
    The next version will be 2.1.7, codename "PinkButteflyProgressiveVibeKindaStuff"

    Hi John. ClevoService keeps starting, and shutting down, program constantly requests to restart it. Starting service through Services.msi also has it shutting down.

    Installed using installer, then replaced new files from beta zip.

    Did you maybe replace the whole "monitor" folder?
    The monitor folder needs to contain:
    -ClevoService.exe
    -OBSIDIANlib.dll
    -Qt5Core.dll
    -Qt5Network.dll

    So you basically only replace the ClevoService.exe
    Also, a reboot might be needed after installing FanControl.

    I now have the beta installed, and am not seeing the problems reported by Chastity.

    Here is my modified method for installing the beta files:

    Exit ALL Obsidian-PC Tools, including Fan Control
    CTRL+ALT+DEL > Select "Task Manager" > Go to "Services" Tab > Search for "ClevoService" > Right-Click on it and select "Stop"
    Rename C:\Program Files\FanControl\FanControl.exe and C:\Program Files\FanControl\monitor\ClevoService.exe so there is a fall-back option without needing to re-install
    Extract downloaded files and place them in C:\Program Files\FanControl\ and C:\Program Files\FanControl\monitor
    Reboot

    Will post if I encounter any problems with the FanControl beta.

    There is problem with 3rd fan (2nd gpu?) with max power. Also, there is DPC latency problem with other modes, so i'm kinda stuck with using only max power while laptop is on.
