    There is a configuration file where Control Station is installed in "cpuprofiles" folder. Go to 8750H.cfg and try manually setting the values?

    Do you have Clevo Control Center installed?
    Are you able to successfully change the clocks in Intel XTU?
    Maybe your clocks were set in the BIOS by your reseller?


    "unpaid version" ? Why would you use that? It only allows you to switch from MAX to AUTO, something which you can already do with FN1 keys.
    Never seen a case of "Stuck" fan when going from Max to Auto, not sure it´s related to being an unregistered version.
    What is your laptop model anyway?

    I do have the Clevo Control Center mainly because I can't turn off the keyboard without it. I don't use the Intel XTU, also the problem seems to have gone away for now. If the problem comes back I will set them manually in 8750H.cfg.

    Laptop is Eurocom Q5 P957HR. The stuck fan issue is persistent and repeatable. Normally, the NVIDIA GPU is not in use, and Fan Control shows it as disabled. In an idle state, if I click the Max speed button, all 3 fans go to max speed. However, if I now click the Auto button, the CPU fan slows down as expected, but the GPU fans stay at full speed. Only if I launch some app that actually uses the GPU, like a 3D game or even a media player (configured in settings to use the GPU), only then does the GPU fan go quiet.

    Note: This only happens if I use the max and auto buttons in Fan Control. This does NOT happen if I use the Fn+1 key combination, which does the job normally, as expected.

    What BIOS and EC are you in? Did you try updating both to see if it has the same behavior?

    BIOS 1.05.09 and EC 1.05.06 These are the latest Eurocom had about a year ago.
    I don't know how to update to a non-EUROCOM BIOS and EC.

    I remember reporting it a few times earlier. He made a fix for me which worked at the time.

    Yes same on Clevo's e-channel! Same BIOS and EC. No updates from Clevo

    The link is dead for Clevoservice but i'm sure @John@OBSIDIAN-PC can repost it in his server

    That was several months ago. Many things might have changed since then... would it still be usable?
    He had said he'd add that service to the next update. Might have forgotten.

    As for why I'm bothering with this and not just using Fn+1 like any sane person would, the reason is this: if Fan Control unregistered has issues on my system, who is to say the registered version won't have similar issues? I don't like asking for my money back, and I'm pretty sure John doesn't like giving it back either. He he.
    (besides, I don't like the speed control algorithms he's using)
