Hi. I just installed the 3705 Cooling fan on my VIM3 and I’m using it in auto mode. Apparently, auto mode keeps the temperature at 50 °C. But i want to keep it at 40 C. How can i do this? I also want to change the fan speed for low mode. Is this possible?

P.S: I tried to set trigger temperature by following the instructions on [VIM3/3L Cooling Fan [Khadas Docs]] and i tried to run this command:
echo 40 | sudo tee /sys/class/fan/trigger_temp_low
but I realized that I don’t have a directory called ‘fan’ in /sys/class/.

Thank you in advance.

Hi there @whxper ,

Which kernel version are you using ? showing the outputs of uname -a and lsb_release -a would be helpful.

for setting low fan speed by default, you can modify /boot/env.txt
and set this parameter:

fan_mode=auto → fan_mode=low



Thank you for your reply!
This should be helpful i think.
