    I have read posts talking about using HWiNFO64 to make fan speed profiles. Is there a reason not to use the AWCC, Fusion's Thremal Profile, Advanced, Smooth Line in a custom profile to run the fans. Its been working great for me since 1.9.0 Bios update.

    I'm a victim of one of these old tales... All true. Dimwit tech bricked my laptop. Got a replacement for free, but took a month since I was in Japan at the time

    And regarding the DGFF GPU: Nvidia RTX 2080 (200w-180w): Dell use 150w card. The 200w-180w moniker is the added overclock allowed by Nvidia.
    The fan icon should be there with or without EC support checked. At least for the older AW models.
