Re: GPU fan always at 100%, can not change the thermal settings
I believe that I am experiencing the same issue, using Kubuntu 12.04. The fan is not on 100% of the time, but easily 80-90% of the time. Prior to upgrading to 12.04, the fan did not run nearly as much.
I have tried several different driver versions, and am currently using 302.11, with an onboard Ion2 (GT218 rev a2) GPU.
This is a HIGHLY annoying problem.
