    Not what I know. Ask the OEM. They have the dialog with Intel.

    I have since learned that the CPU has many instructions and registers to set power profiles all documented in the manuals, that the Dell BIOS implements various power policies that are difficult/impossible to overcome. I suspect fan control would be implemented by some peripheral controller.

    i think the fans are controlled completely by the EC sensor. when you disable the EC sensor, it does not report the fan speeds anymore in HWINFO.
