Sounds like you need to open the system, clean the HSF unit, ensure all air intakes are clear of contamination, remove the HSF and clean off the old thermal paste (carefully) from both the CPU & HSF and apply a new layer of thermal paste. Over time, contamination such as dust will reduce the heatsink efficiency, and should be periodically cleaned - use ...

Look for the acer_ec.pl script it can control the fan through the register of the embedded controller. It works on other pc, too.

Ok so apparently I missed the blindingly obvious fact that my case's intake fan wasn't hooked up. The intake fan doesn't have the same small 3/4-pin connector, it only has a larger 4-pin molex connector (with both male and female ends), which I hooked up to a spare molex coming from my power supply. The intake fan also has a manual 3-position switch ...

These values will show ALARM even if you do not have any headers on you motherboard. The reason is that is most likely the default setting in the BIOS. Possibly a better version of you motherboard has intrusion detection headers available and there are resettable via the BIOS only. There is not much you can do to change the values.. as it would defy the ...

Long ago but it seems there's still no documentation at all, so this is what I've found out by testing (temp increases on load) so far: 0 - CPU 2 - GPU 3 - Unknown (really strange behaviour, values from 0 to 7 - any ideas?) 5 - Chipset 6 - Battery 8 - Chipset There is NO sensor for hard disk temperature

k10temp shows CPU temperature. depending on semiconductor and cooling technology maximum is between 50 and 150C (read the CPU spec sheet)

It doesn't actually report physical information at all. The physical sensors return a value from 0 to (say) 65535, and then this value is manipulated (multiplied, added to, etc.) to give the result you see. It may be that the software is miscalibrated or such, which would give strange values such as the ones you're seeing.

Have you upgraded your kernel lately? Unless you've been tinkering with system hardware to improve cooling, your change probably came as a result of a kernel upgrade. Either the new kernel's drivers don't quite work with your particular chipset, or they enumerate the sensors differently and the sensor you're watching isn't the one you were watching before. ...

I got sensors to work on mine (linux mint debian) by loading the coretemp module: sudo modprobe coretemp Then run sensors again.If that works, make it permanent by: sudo echo "coretemp" >> /etc/modules You can also install i8kutils, then load the i8k module and get the temp from /proc/i8k: sudo apt-get install i8kutils sudo modprobe i8k cat ...

Based on your answer to my comment, I think that the setting of ALARM after boot is bogus and should be ignored. As your chassis is not open, cold reboot from power-off should have cleared up the condition of intrusion alarm. The cause could be a hardware problem with your mainboard captors or simply the way that it was designed to work. If it bothers you, ...

It is fairly common for motherboard manufacturers to buy chips in bulk for several boards and not pin-out different functionalities per board to save cost and differentiate the models. That sounds like the case here. The generic answer to a chipset that has features that are not enabled is to "piggy-back" a connector directly to the chip (from intrusion ...

I had to do two things to monitor my FX 8350: turn on IOMMU in my BIOS and load the it87 module. I have an Asus board and it has the IOMMU options in the bios under Advanced --> Northbridge, I believe. sudo modprobe it87 should take care of the rest. Of course, you'll want to add a line to /etc/modules, so it87 will load on boot. If you run sudo ...

I've found this page http://www.parhelia.ch/blog/statics/k3_keys.html explaining vast majority of SMC keys. As for your question, I believe that TA0P and TA0p is the same thing. A0 means ambient sensor #0 and p means proximity. TC-- are sensors for CPU/logic board. Latest D means CPU die (sensor), and H refers to heatsink.

you can redirect the output of the sensors command to a file using the >> operator of the shell while [true] do sensors >> */your/file/here* sleep 1 done The >> operator redirects standard output of a command to a file so in this case it will write the output of sensors to the file you name. 1 second is pretty frequent so you'll want to ...
