    Ok, pressing this combination, and then FN+R on my E6510 brings up the BIOS Thermal Options, allowing me turn off BIOS thermal management and run speedfan.

    On the E6520, the first combination seems to work, the CAPS LOCK key blinks for a second, but then FN+R does not work. Nothing seems to work actually.

    Any help, I need to use speedfan as it's constantly getting too hot!

    Not when you're running LOTRo or something - my temp according to speedfan hits 80oC !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I want thermal control too, but speedfan can only monitor, no adjustments work.

    ...and that key combination does *NOT* work on the E6520, as Dreamliner said. What is the key combination????
