Re: Automatically adjust Nvidia GPU fan speed

Genius solution. A Conky script could be used as a visual indicator.

Thanks,

Re: Automatically adjust Nvidia GPU fan speed

I was working on an G-15 LCD readout for it too.

Re: Automatically adjust Nvidia GPU fan speed

Hi.
I like what u did here. Most of it is just fine but the nvautoadjust script isnt. You'v put a curent temp variable outside the while loop so it basicly fix the fan speed on a first value.

#!/bin/bash
interval=10
while true; do
    current_temp=`nvidia-settings -t -q [GPU:0]/GPUCoreTemp`
    if [ "$current_temp" -gt "70" ]; then
        nvfanspeedadjust max
    elif [ "$current_temp" -le "70" -a "$current_temp" -gt "60" ]; then
        nvfanspeedadjust mid
    elif [ "$current_temp" -le "60" ]; then
        nvfanspeedadjust min
    fi
    sleep "$interval"
done

Re: Automatically adjust Nvidia GPU fan speed

As I discovered the hard way, coolbits and nvclock do not work with newer nvidia cards, including the 500, 600, and possibly the 400 series. Buyer beware.

Re: Automatically adjust Nvidia GPU fan speed

Hello, followed your little tutorial and works great except for one thing, there is a minimus fan speed setting of 40%, the problem is the fan is too loud at that setting, cant set it to less then that either from the terminal nor from nvidia settings application, anyone knows how to set a different minimum fan speed or a speed lower then 40%?

Thanks
