    I am currently using the DELL Fan Utility manually with the GUI. Fans are controlled by Speed Fan.

    The only problem I have: Dell Fan utility only works in Windows Testmode. I have a little pogramm to remove the watermark on the desktop, but I am a little bit concerend, that testmode could be en entrance for malware/viruses etc.

    I share the tools and Speedfan settings I use with this link: https://www4.zippyshare.com/v/KtP3lO0S/file.html

    I've literally just registered to say this: thank you. me and many many other Dell G3/G5/G7 users are currently having issues with the fans being bad due to a recent BIOS update, plus our i7 8750H chip is one of the hotter ones too... So yeah, anyway, thank you again. I've finally tamed the fans on my laptop and it's a blessing to hear it breathe.

    Combination of -0.125V undervolting and "if t>=55°C then RPM=4900, else RPM=2200" logic kind of solves the problem for now.

    Cheers!

    Wish you could change its size. It is so so tiny on my 4k xps 9570, can't read anything to even try it! Anway to resize it?

    Nevermind got it!!!! Will test and report back!

    I have this working on Dell XPS 9570 4k - Thank you! The constant fan on/off noise was driving me insane!
    Does anyone have any recommended settings for the XPS 9570 running a Intel Core i7-8750H?
    I mean in terms of safe operating temps before the fans kick in? Right now they are set to kick in at 52°C but if I have Photoshop/Illustrator open it can bring back the on/off issue because it keeps hitting that 52 mark. I could solve this by setting that limit higher but having no fan kick in till it hits 60°C sounds like a bad idea lol
    Lastly, does anyone know if this can work without having to be in windows test mode?
    Thanks again - why Dell does not allow us to control the fan curve without these hacks is beyond me.

    Can you enable EC again if you don't like custom fans?
