    Is there any videos that give a overview of all the options of this control center? Is there any better programs to I could use to control the fans and the rpms?

    Right now on Automatic- Fans are hitting high RPM's when gaming at low temps.

    I don't know of any other third party utilities that have exclusive access to the OEMs EC firmware (the firmware that controls fan behavior). I think CCC is as good as it gets.

    Just an overview video here, but for a different system. No in-depth reviews or tutorials as far as I've searched.

    Is it normal for the laptop to override the Custom fan profile in CCC and switch to the automatic profile- after playing games it would switch by itself.

    Depends on what the temps are.

    Temps are low..

    Sucks that there's no way to control them, going to return it.

    Same problem - it hits the fans at pretty high speed which is very noisy when the temperature hits around 55C. Custom profile does not seem to overwrite this - they keep running every minute or two for a few seconds until it drops to 43C. I am not sure which sensor temperature it shows - I have AID64 installed and the closest one to that in CCC is the CPU temperature. I've tried updating from Clevo's website but the 1.0.0.72 version is not working and the 1.0.0.68 still has the same problem(CPU Memory OC is not working). My original one was 1.0.0.56 I think which came preinstalled with the laptop(Clevo P775TM). The only solution for now seems just to uninstal the CCC.

    I have the exact opposite problem. My temps are reaching 60c and fans won't spin at all. Unless it hits around 70c then the fans will start spinning.

    Yes, CCC is very buggy. I just tried v70 - it does not work there too...

    Idk what model you have, but I'm pretty sure mine is worse than yours :'D

    The closest thing I've found in CCC to fan "control" is to set GPU overclocking to ON, even if you're not using a GPU overclock. Then, use the Fan Scaling slider to get to the temperature range you're trying to achieve.

    If you want to lower the overall heat and noise of the laptop while not gaming, set your power state in Windows to a low power state. You will see that frequency and power consumption go down on both the CPU and GPU(s), and the laptop will run cooler and quieter.

    Ambient room temperature makes a difference.

    My P870KM1's bottom panel is one big mesh screen, and under that is a huge copper heat sink, and so a laptop cooler helps lower temperatures pretty significantly. On my old Alienware, the heat sinks for the CPU and GPUs were all on top of the motherboard, so a laptop cooler didn't make much of a difference. I made a cooler pad with three 120mm fans, and the laptop doesn't make much noise at all even under full load. GPUs and CPU are all at about 72° or so. Your Clevo PA71HS will benefit from a cooler since all of the heat sinks are on the bottom.

    And finally, there's the FN+1 method of forcing the fans to full speed (I don't know what models this works on). If your laptop still gets too hot under load with the fans forced to full speed, then there is a problem with thermals. This is pretty damn loud though.
