I have new lenovo P52 which suffers from serious overheating. The rule of thumb for this laptop is, that fan start very late and when eventually, then inadequately. ‘fancontrol’ or manually setting max spin speed fixes the issue for CPU fan, but GPU fan isn’t detected by fancontrol and probably is controlled by nvidia drivers. The fan speed/response to load for GPU is even worse then for CPU, and I’d really like to fix 75°C and higher temperatures.
I’m total GPU configuration newbie, I was able to instal nvidia drivers, but everything after that does not work for me. I read your nvidia documentation I was able to found, but I cannot see a way how to control fans. Enable coolbits does nothing, calling nvidia-settings -q fans prints nothing, and CLI of this is totally incomprehensible for me. How is this used? Or how to anyhow raise sensitivity to templerature or manually control fans? Since even without any intensive work my left leg is 36°C and right leg 45°C, which is not especially comfy :)
