    SpeedFan 4.46 is out with "greatly improved DELL support" :)

    P.S. To control the fan you have to enable "DELL support" in options and restart SpeedFan.

    Sounds great.

    I just got the XPS 15 and became a little bit frustrated because I didn't know about manual fan control like for the Vostro 1500.

    It doesn't work for me on a L702x.
    Fan spins up for a seconds then stops again.

    Has anyone got Speedfan to work on their L702x/L502x? It would be class to get this working properly.

    fluffy, what you have to do is turn the fan control down, then back up, it did it to me too, now it's stuck at 100% again and it's bee like that for 15+mins now

    EDIT: It shut off again, i'm thinking it ran too cool (44C) and dell decided to override it and shut it off, i'm going to do a bit more testing at other %'s and see if it sticks longer (trying 95% now and so far it's sticking)

    Yes, it works, but it can't take advantage of the fan control completely to set it as you wish.

    Yeah, Mine's shut off again... a little frustrating =/

    Ohh well, it was awesome if u have time on ur hands n wanna see how cool your laptop can get, I got my m1330 to get down to 62C on the vid card, and about 42C on the CPU (20% load).

    On my L702x the lowest I've gotten was 39C CPU and 36C GPU.

    I might try the turning it down first see if it works better.
    It's still not much use if the laptop will override the settings after I set them, even if it takes a few minutes.

    What I'd love to do with this if it was working is turn the fan to 100% then overclock the GPU as high as I can go and turn off turboboost to help keep the heat down then see if it can get max settings on BF3 :p

    okay, i figured it out fluffy, try this... turn on speedfan, once it hits 100% fan, close the program right away, mine's been STUCK for a while now. If it doesn't work I can send you my whole speedfan profile and we'll test from there.

    EDIT:
    I started running prime95 and stopped the process after it hit ~80C, it went back off again. There goes my theory :( I read on the speedfan website, that for dells, if the bios is controlling the fan speeds and adjusting it, then there's little speedfan can do, so I guess truly there's no hope for us :(

    it wont work on dell xps l702x ,even with the unlocked bios, , someone need to set it internal in bios and add someoptions for the fan, i rather want to have manual controll or automatic with thse speeds

    Low 750~900rpm continue, (med) when hit 55-65c 1700-2200rpm, (max) when hit 79c 2200rpm+

    tobad this is no pwm fan if it was speedfan can take controll over it , but its a simple 3 pin fan

    let me know if its possible
