    Hmm.. using this actually worsened my temperatures. It seems that the brief moment the fan stops actually causes the heatsink to accumulate too much heat, and the subsequent fan blast (dust mode) isn't enough to take it all out.

    Playing Witcher 3 with this, I'd game at around 90 celsius, with bursts to 93 when fan stops, while without it, it'd be at around 85~87. I set Ideafan to start at 80 Celsius

    Maybe if I set the auto interval to something like 85 or 86 celsius, it'd just give the initial fan blast to hold it below 85, then it would return to normal mode... I'll be trying this

    Just thought Id give an update to OpenHardwareMonitor for sensor data and also some bugfixes to show temps. Here you go: IdeaFan 2.0
