Performance Control screen with Thermal Control option
  • Balanced: Suitable for common tasks. Fan speed and power to the computer is balanced depending on the requirements of the activity.

  • Performance: Suitable for gaming and content creation. Power is increased to the CPU and graphics to add maximum performance. Additional fan noise and heat is generated by increased fan speed.

  • Thermal Control:

    • MAX: The fan operates at maximum speed regardless of the load, cooling the system as quick as possible. Additional fan noise and heat is generated.

    • AUTO: The computer adjusts the fan speed depending on the load (amount of work it is performing). This is automatically controlled in the BIOS. This setting is the most efficient option for matching the required fan speed to the load on the system.

    • MANUAL: Setting Thermal Control to MANUAL enables the System Fan Speed slide bar. Move the slide bar to adjust the system fan speed to your preferred fan speed range, reducing or increasing the noise and heat generated. The computer automatically adjusts the power to the CPU and GPU to match your preferred fan speed.

      • If you need higher performance, adjust the slider to the right to increase the fan speed. Increased fan speed generates more noise and heat.

      • If you need a quieter environment, adjust the slider to the left to reduce fan speed. Reduced fan speed lowers the performance of the computer.
