Increasing Fan Speed On Advanced Dock

#1 Post by Thinkpads4Life » Fri May 16, 2014 4:10 pm

I'm interested in increasing the fan speed on my Advanced Dock (Not Advanced Mini Dock). I already have my t60s internal fans cranked up all the way and I'm not able to get down past 70 C when watching HD video in full screen. I wondered if there is a way to max out fan speed on the advanced dock to in turn lower my temps. FYI. I am running Linux Mint Debian Edition on it. On top of that, how many extra fans are in the advanced dock?

There is 1: to cool the PSU that's inside the dock. Letting it make even more noise won't get your T60 any cooler.

Why would you want to get temperature down below 70° C? The processors in these notebooks will stand higher temperatures. Check the specs for your processor on the Intel web site. There you can see how warm it's allowed to get.

I've just checked and the temp range for the t2500 in mine is 0c to 100c according to Intel's website.
