ATI Fan Control



Score 69%
ATI Fan Control

Minimum required   KDE 3.5.x
Downloads:  2336
Submitted:  Oct 26 2008


This widget will display current ATI screen card fan speed and temperature.
It will also allow the modification of the fan speed in 5% increments.

This widget was born out of a need to easily monitor and control my 4870x2
card. I've found that the default idling fan speed is not sufficient enough to
control the temperature of the card. In a Q9550/Antec 900 system this card idles
at over 80C!! I've found a fan speed of 40% will maintain a card temp below 50C.

This theme can be used in SuperKaramba or as a KDE 4 plasmoid. The widget will
automatically save your last used fan speed setting. Next time the widget is
opened, the last saved setting will automatically be applied.

1) ATI Catalyst drivers. I've used ati-driver-installer-8-9-x86.x86_64.run
2) To install as a plasmoid, please ensure both superkaramba-kde4 and
libkrosspython0 is installed.

The SuperKaramba installation is straight forward but to install in KDE 4:
1) right click on your desktop and select Add Widgets
2) then click the Install New Widgets dropdown
3) then click Install from File
4) select SuperKaramba: Karamba Desktop Theme
5) select ATIFanCon.skz
6) if you receive a Kross related error, restart KDE after installing

Used in SuperKaramba, the widget must be locked (right click Locked Position)
else the widget will not capture click events on the increase and decrease

great idea, just what i needed, however, doesn't appear to work on my laptop: kubuntu 8.10 KDE 4 ATI radeon HD 2400.

guessing it must be something to do with the sensors etc.

We are Linux. Resistance is an indication you missed the point.

 Testing, testing...

Hi All

Yup, goes to show. I can only test on what I have. Radeon 4870x2 and latest Catalyst drivers. That is the magic combination, although I am sure the aticonfig commands I use to up and down the fan speed and get the card temperature will work on all new gen cards. That is 48xx.

Please make sure of your aticonfig version and play with the aticonfig commands below. Any feedback is appreciated and your help can get this theme working on a wider card range:

1) aticonfig --adapter=0 --od-gettemperature
2) aticonfig --pplib-cmd "get fanspeed 0"
3) aticonfig --pplib-cmd "set fanspeed 0 40" (make speed 40%)

The adapter values above can be changed from 0 to 1 or maybe 2. This would mainly be needed in multi GPU or X-Fire configs.

Since it uses AMD/ATi Overdrive, it'll work on whatever cards are supported by that. Which like you said is only the HD4k series (same on Windows, except you can use RivaTuner there). But anyway, I'm just wondering what all is needed in order to run this. When I put it on my desktop I get a warning about needing more Kross support. What's this written in, etc.?

Keep up the good work guys ^_^ Everyone who uses GUI appreciates nice themes :D

"6) if you receive a Kross related error, restart KDE after installing

Thanks a lot!

Btw, thanks a boatload for going to the trouble of creating this! I'm keeping it on my desktop even if my HD3870X2 doesn't have fan control support yet :D It's very nice!

 temperature sensor is broken

 by pseudonym on: Mar 24 2009

The temperature sensor does not display any value, probably relating to the error given by "aticonfig --odgt"
$ aticonfig --odgt
ERROR - Could not find library: libatiadlxx.so

$ LD_PRELOAD=libXinerama.so.1 aticonfig --odgt

Default Adapter - ATI Radeon HD 4800 Series
Sensor 0: Temperature - 41.50 C

$ aticonfig --pplib-cmd "get temperature 0"
Temperature for thermal controller 0 is 41.500000

I'm using version 8.12 on slackware 12.2

I figured out a workaround for anyone else who has this problem:

1. (as root) rename /usr/bin/aticonfig to /usr/bin/aticonfig-bin
# mv /usr/bin/aticonfig /usr/bin/aticonfig-bin

2. create a text file (as root) named "aticonfig" in /usr/bin/
# kwrite /usr/bin/aticonfig

3. paste this line into the file:
LD_PRELOAD=libXinerama.so.1 aticonfig-bin "$@"

4. save and exit

5. make the text file executable
# chmod +x /usr/bin/aticonfig

 nice app, but

 by wevah on: Jun 27 2009

I like your applet very much. It is usefull and good looking, but:

as long as the applet is running, the automatic fan control does not work - I had some overheating issues because of that

That is not a complaint - just a warning for other users: you might have to increase the fan speed before you start a 3d game...

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
