Is there any way to control the fans on my new Satellite L775 ? I'm trying to get them at full speed in order to cool more efficently my CPU and (most importantly) my GPU, which overheats quite a lot after some Crysis or another game.
I also would like to know: does opening my laptop in order to replace the thermal paste (I did this on my old Dell, and it helped a lot) would void my warranty or something like that ?
Thanks for you answers,
EDIT: renamed question: i forgot to type what was the problem.
As Dr.Lamp wrote you can change the cooling method in Windows power management. You can change between battery optimized and maximum performance. Latter offers best cooling performance for applications with high CPU usage. If you use high performance power plan always maximum cooling performance will be set.
If you replace the thermal grease yourself you will lose the warranty so don’t do it on your own. Not every thermal grease can be used for every cooling module. So this should only be done from an authorized service provider but you have a new notebook model and on new models it’s not necessary to renew the thermal grease.
Thanks to both of you. I wanted to replace thermal grease in order to have a better cooling of my computer, on my old Dell the temps were even better than with the default ones. I'm not going to try that until at least the end of the warranty.
