UEFI 2703 & 0002 with SMU FW 46.34.00 for C7H & C7HWIFI in this post.
I believe I had just hit this problem where my CPU fan just stopped after a few hours of usage (not really super high load, but with 2 VM images running).
I am running on Linux and have a "while true" loop constantly monitoring the CPU temp every 5 seconds. When I came back from dinner just now, I just realized that the highest temp recorded was 128C, but it did not shutdown.
Does anyone know whether there's any settings in the BIOS/UEFI that I can use to force shutdown over a certain temperature?
C7HWIFI + 2703
95C is throttle point and 115C is OTP AFAIK.
ASUS WMI works by a 2 fold fix, apps access Super IO chip must use that and UEFI must have implementation that is not broken.
Someone did create a driver for use on Linux, link. From a vague recollection I recall someone saying it didn't actually access SIO correctly and still SIO could go nuts, leading to erratic behaviour. Dunno, though, this is what my vague recollection is.
I occasionally use Linux mint, bit of a noob to linux, so I can't really answer much on it. As I know how my system behaves based on data collected for a profile on WinOS I really do no monitoring in LM.
You can adjust throttle point, Precision Boost menu on Extreme Tweaker and or same menu in AMD CBS/AMD Overclocking has the settings. Allows reduction, but not increase.
Hi @gupsterg, thank you for always being so helpful!
So, I guess the fan fix of "002" will be introduced in the next official ASUS release?
