    Hi John, thanks for this great tool. I have a Clevo P775DM3 on Windows 10 Creators Update, it is version 5.0001.1.04 which is the latest version for my laptop.

    The thing is, the CCC used to startup automatically and suddenly I noticed it's not in the taskbar icons. So what I did is I uninstalled it using Geek Uninstaller which found a leftover of the Hotkey folder and got rid of that.

    Then I rebooted and downloaded it again using the OBSIDIAN Tool and reintalled, then rebooted, it's installed and CCC runs when I manually launch it but it's not starting up on startup automatically despite me seeing the the Hotkey entry is there in the Autoruns

    Mind you, I have no Killer garbage suite or the Intel PRO/SET for the Wireless drivers which we know can sometimes prevent certain apps from starting up.

    How can I fix this?

    I haven't the newer Clevo DM2/3 models or installed the Crematory Edition. But I have seen other brands own proprietary software struggle with working correctly with the newest Windows build. Maybe try this FIX
    I myself as @bloodhawk have uninstalled the CCC software for many months ago. Not a useful software for me.

    I use either automatic fans or maxed fans with Fn+1. + my mod U3 cooler.
    There isn't any 3rd party software for fan control for Clevo's.

    If I uninstall the CCC, will the fan still work automatically if temperature reach high values?

    Yes.
    Fans are controlled by the EC Firmware.

    What are the rpm's of the fans when controlled by the EC Firmware? Will they be around 3500 max? just wondering.

    They are "automatic" so they change RPM based on the temperature readings. Actually i think newer models use more values then just temperatures to set the speed, stuff like power draw and loads should come into play, not sure.

    Max RPM is not the same on all models, since they use different fan models.

    Automatic mode will never speed the fans to max like when you do FN+1 but still they will spin high enough.

    Thank you. For me the automatic settings in CCC gave 3500 rpm, with OC fan profile and fn+1 it was +4200 rpm max. I was just wondering if the CCC I had was buggy and therefore caused the throttling in my laptop. Hard to say, but I have returned it now to the place I bought it from.
