    As we all know , Aorus took away the ability for Max fan in the new update. Since i live in a tropical country, this has created a multitude of problems for me as the auto fan control is inadequate.
    My idle CPU temps are 60 C. Hence i will be very very grateful if one of you guys could provide me the CnC that allowed Max fan control.

    Hi John,

    Just to let you know, the AORUS team is aware of these issues and are working on re-adding the Max Control setting in Command and Control.

    Thanks,

    GIGABYTE NB

    Any update on the expected availability of the new driver? I am scared to play any games these days as the cpu goes straight to 90C and that is after i thoroughly cleaned the laptop. I understand the option was removed to prevent fan damage but i would rather replace my fans than to suffer thermal degradation in the long run.

    As an intermediate solution you could clip the blue (and/or yellow) wire of the fan cable. With most designs that will result in no rpm report to the embedded controller and, in turn, causes it to run at 100% all the time. When the driver is fixed you can re-connect the wire(s), either by twining or soldering.

    It's perfectly safe to clip the wires when the system is running. That's also easier. See, the problem is that you can't be certain which colour does what; red and black are commonly voltage and ground, so that's good. But either yellow or blue can be tachometer (rpm report) or pwm (which controls fan speed). Sadly, there's no standard for colour coding with these things. Ah, and clipping pwm may work too, but only if it uses an interrupt/off signal (rather than an active/on type).
