I’m waiting arrival of European 8100Y/8GB Minibook, have downloaded this fan patch/flashing instructions, and was wondering if a veteran user could confirm if this is still a viable solution for a noisy fan.
Thank you for any advice–and thank you, minih4x, for your great work.
Thank you for posting your positive results. My Minibook arrived a couple of days ago and I’m putting it through its paces. In Win10, my unpatched fan is on at all times, but at a very low level. Only when the machine is taxed does the fan really wind up, and then I can see why users have complained.
That said, I use computers for general work–not gaming, etc–and I took the advice of another user here and set the machine to “Best Battery Life” which makes the fan spin at a constant, but low rate.
It’s noticeable but not obnoxious. Still, I’m considering the SEPA fan replacement that others have suggested, if only for an even less detectable noise of constant fan.
As an aside–for battery and cpu monitoring, Serious Samurize still works on Win10. I usually run at 40C. If somebody needs my Samurize script for the Minibook, please post.
