    On some models we take the Clevo stock fan response curves and modify them - for example we may want a higher fan speed to kick in at a lower or higher temperature than the Clevo design, or we might not want the fans to ramp up as quickly - for that matter we might not want them to ramp down as quickly either if there is repeated ramping in the stock profile.

    do you also customize idle fan profiles? for ex p775dm3 and p870km1?

    cause I find both to be crazy loud when idle for nothing really.

    Not sure what you mean - using different speaker units?

    Only for the BGA models AFAIK these days, if there is an EC with a "TR" suffix it's one of ours. The more fans in a laptop, the more fan profiles in CCC theat are added the more complicated and time consuming it gets.

    @sicily428 Ah ok, there's no choice. The audio chips are integrated and speakers are all standard - Clevo won't and can't change these for individual customers.

    Yup, have seen (rather heard) what he did - easier to do when you have a 4 year old laptop though and no worries about warranty and so on :) Definitely possible I guess on the newer models, though the speakers are much better especially on the larger chassis than they were back in 2013. Plus in a previous life I was a pro audio engineer, so would be a fun project - but for mass production I don't know if the quality increase could be justified from a cost and time POV.

    Half decent pair of headphones or connect to external audio system will give much better results.
