Dell G3 3590 Fan Control

Is there a fan control utility for my laptop? Its a Dell G3 3590. I have tried fan-control-gui and it seems i8kutils doesn't support it because it has not been updated. On windows Dell provides their alienware software which allows me to ramp up the power limit on the cpu and increases fan speed. I cannot find a similar utility in linux.

If you do a search (below) there are threads to study.


If these don't help, someone will be along after you have exhausted them. :slightly_smiling_face:

Nothing on the forums or duckduckgo searches. Hence the question. Similar questions also have not received proper replies.

Had to check :wink:

I'll have a look online to try and help.

Edit: - Fan speed control - ArchWiki

Is this helpful?


No. I should clarify that I am not a complete noob when it comes to arch. I may not know everything there is to know about linux but I know enough to know what to do before asking a question. Namely check arch wiki and forums and interwebz first.

Edit: I just noticed that I already mentioned the package in the wiki article as well in my OP.
