    Default amdgpu fan speed

    In a cool room both my cpu and gpu will idle mid to low 30s but tonight I saw my gpu at 75 when I came out of a game that is heavy for my system. I'm not sure but that's pretty scary to me. When I was using the old Catalyst drivers from Amd my fan speeds(Two fans on the card) would increase when I went into a game like that. I could hear them, but not with radeon or amdgpu. I can't use the newer Crimson drivers as my card is too old. Is there any way I can make the open source drivers increase my gpu fan speeds when it's under load?

    How do I do that? Will this activate fan control and keep the settings across reboots?

    Um.. As nearly as I can tell amd_gpu_power_profile seems to control power but not fan speed?

    I found this: https://github.com/chestm007/amdgpu-fan. It's just what I need and it works beautifully but it only runs as root. I put it in autostart but It won't run on boot and login.

    I'm looking around net no joy yet. Apparently it makes a difference that it's a python program though.

    Hi
    Does the system support pwmconfig command if you run that?

    The amdgpu profile should control the fan speed.

    Yeah I have it but I don't see how to configure it here. Let me go back through your posts. As I remember I don't think I quite got how the percentages worked.

    Got amdgpu-fan running on boot. It was supposed to become a service but apparently didn't copy unit file to appropriate place. Looking around all day gave me clue and I found it in /etc/systemd/system/amdgpu-fan.service.

    Thanks for all your help guys.


    It works! Woo Hoo!
