    I have too been having these issues where the software just disables the Fan control for the GPU, what am I to make of it?

    This is normal. You have two GPUs - one bundled with the Intel CPU (integrated), and one discrete NVIDIA GPU. You are using Optimus technology, where the low power integrated GPU is the default, and the the system automatically switches to the NVIDIA GPU when it is needed, eg. for 3D games or heavy apps like Photoshop. When you are running on the integrated GPU, the discrete GPU is powered down to save power, and that is why the status is shown as disabled.

    In the NVIDIA control panel, look for the file menu item desktop>display gpu activity icon in the notification area. If you select this, you'll see a colour change in the icon when the NVIDIA GPU is in use.

    From his sig "System: Clevo P870KM1, i9-9900K, 32GB RAM, GTX 1070, 2x 2TB NVME, 2x 4TB 2,5" SSD"

    If this is the system... iGPU not possible for this Clevo machine.

    Yes this is the system. It must be software related because the graphics card is working. even tho it instantly thermal throttles because fan control is actually a great solution to the cooling problems.

    In my mind the Clevo P870 Models, any of those models is like a Dual Turbocharged Mazda RX7FD that has heat pouring through its transmission tunnel and anything with reliability has to do with heat management.

    Has anyone a guide what the best normal mode fan control option for a P870 System is? one where the system is kept cool but not too loud?

    Just had the same issue. I'm worrying that this software is no longer stable and will damage my work laptop.

    For me, since I set up the scheduled task to kill and restart clevoservice, I haven't had these problems. I think the 'stops responding' message is generally due to the insane amount of memory being accumulated. I use a batch file in the scheduled task to simply :


    net stop ClevoService
    net start ClevoService


    every 10-15 minutes.

    I've upgraded to a new laptop and want to move over my licenses for Fan Control and Updater - how do I do this?

    Edit: I purchased another license, got the confirmation email but when I enter the order number into the application I just get a message saying "not a valid license"...
