  1. Fan going crazy . . .

    Hi: My ASUS laptop fan has gone crazy lately. It runs wide open for a half a minute or more then shuts down to an idle, then goes up full blast again after a half a minute or so. It never ramps up or down, it's either idling or wide open. A complete restart doesn't help.

    Machine is about 6 months old and runs fine otherwise.

    - Task manager shows nothing unusual
    - Vents are not blocked
    - I've not added or removed any software or changed any settings
    - W10, Firefox, etc. are all set to auto update
    - The fan cycles up and down even if there are NO PROGRAMS open at all
    - I've run numerous malware scans and have cleaned the registry and Firefox; WIndows security says all is good
    - Googling has come up with nothing but a lot of work-arounds that are not for the average person

    Win version: 18363.778

    My laptop fan is going crazy and won’t stop spinning

    I have had my laptop for abour two years now and it has been working fine until about two weeks ago when the fan started making grinding noises and was on all the time. All of a sudden though my laptop fan started going crazy, it is loud and seems like it
    is spinning really fast. The laptop doesn’t seem to be heating up. I turned off my laptop and left it over night but the next morning when i turned on my laptop the fan starts spinning right away and it still makes the loud noise.

  3. Device List going crazy

    I have Windows 7 Home Premium and the last couple of times I've needed to open my Device Manager the list of devices has been going crazy. It opens, closes, opens, closes, opens, closes and just keeps on doing that. It's kind of hard to find the device
    you're looking for when that is going on. Does anyone out there know how to make the list behave and stay open?

    Overclocking / Undervolting guide for Vega 56 or 64?

    Here's a quick laundry list:

    List of software to use for overclocking and testing
    Wattman (and how to find and use it, like an overview, including profiles)
    Unigine Valley or Heaven (use this for quick testing while changing settings in Wattman and checking for stability / artifacts) ...just suggesting this
    How to monitor cores / mem speeds and temps during testing (I've seen screen overlays, and others using GPUz)

    Step-by step overclocking in Wattman
    Fan speeds
    Power limit
    Temp limit
    Core speeds
    Memory speeds
