Linux - Fan control


Recommended Posts



I owned a Microserver Gen8 2 years ago and since a few days I built in a Xeon E3-1270v2 (69W TDP)

When the CPU is under load (100%) it becomes hot! about 80°C. But the fan doesn't go faster then. 
Sometimes it spins up, but not continuously and not long enough. 

Is there a way to control the fan by some script? 

Something like:
<50°C               -> 10% Speed
50°C< x <65°C -> 50% Speed
>65°C               -> 100% Speed? 

Im running Linux Debian 8. 

pwmconfig doesn't find the standard fan.

>>> # pwmconfig 
/usr/sbin/pwmconfig: There are no pwm-capable sensor modules installed

Is there an other way to control the fan? 

I don't want to use the bios-settings:
- Increased cooling

- Maximum cooling


Best wishes:

PS: Sorry for bad english.
