comment Why can't I control the speed of my CPU fan?
@Breakthrough the difference is that you have feedback loop which controls the rpm of the fan. Setting the fan to 800 rpm may cause, in some cases, CPU overheating.

Nice and detailed answer. Thanks. I am familiar with electronics and your solution, I just think it is not a good idea to do that.

comment Why can't I control the speed of my CPU fan?
nope, all fan sockets are 4 pins. I think i got wrong fan, since PWM indicates that it can be controlled and thus it should have 4 pins.

Yes, the cpu_fan socket has 4 pin but the fan has only 3 wires.

The fan is connected to the mobo to the cpu_fan input and it has 3 wires. I can read actual rpm of the fan in BIOS and in the software, I just can't change the speed.

comment howto use external monitor without shutting down the lid
thx for the reply, but this does not seem to work for me. I did as you said. (0) both screen are on (1) turn on mirroring (2) press the keys to turn off the screen - at that point both screens are turned off and I wish to turn off only the lid.
