Windows 7: Should I always keep my laptop fan running ?

01 Nov 2010   #11

Windows 7 baby ! : D

Actually I did find this version that seems to work with my card Download Gainward Expertool v.4.0 for ATI | techPowerUp

However it's an old version I wonder If there's an updated version around ?

it won't do anything to your cpu fan.

if however, you wish to tweak your ati graphics card, try ati tray tools instead.

Cooling fans are also great air cleaners they suck in dirty air and deposit it on the fan and components and exhaust hot clean air. I would clean your laptop with compressed air on a regular basis either way but if you leave the fans on high then clean much more often. My thinking is to let the laptop choose it's fan speed to keep cool and if you notice the fans running longer and harder for a given task then it's a good bet it's time for a cleaning.
