I'm having the same problem (got a GE72 2QE) and the other requirements are correct. (also installed with Admin Rights)

Post by: eltucanero on 28-May-15, 15:34:25
Thanks for your information.  Please check the system requirment we added on the topic.
I reinstalled with admin right and got the same problem.
The PDF says that GE 60 2PE APACHE PRO is compatible with the software, so why isnt working?
Also Framework 4.5 is installed in my computer.

Kind regards.

I hope you fix problems because it seems like that application will be very useful since sometimes I'm in the library and I would like that my laptop would be quieter.

Hi everyone,
Thanks for your test and information.  We are studying the problem root cause.

If your model is GT72, GE60 2Qx/2Px or GS60 2Qx, and encounter any problem, you can try this "SilentOptionCleaner"
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B1oSMeecH6wcRWwyMlI3eXpFVE0/view?usp=sharing

Double click SilentOptionCleaner.exe to execute, and it will reset EC FAN table.  Restart OS and execute Silent Option again.

Your feedback can help MSI improve this FAN utility.
Thank you.

No not working. I explain what is happening. I did follow al your steps also the new on with "SilentOptionCleaner". When I restart my msi after install the program only I see is the frame from the app with nothing showing inside the app. So it doesn't work but the strange thing is I cant exit the app? I can only do it with task manager? Then the program exits. So thats my update, but anyway thanks for your support I hope it will work on off these days!  :biggthumbsup:

Greetings,

I'd just like to confirm that Win 7 users need .Net 4.0 rather than a later version. I'd like to try Silent Option but my GT80 has .Net 4.5.2 rather than 4.0.

Kind regards, David

THANK YOU

Being able to set the fan curve is a great feature that has improved my laptops performance in games.

By adjusting the fan curve the max temperature hangs around 79-85c. Before it was always around 90+ and throttling.

Would be nice if you were able to set the fan curve the change at set temperatures as opposed to 6 different performance levels.

If the above was added this would be perfect software.

System Requirement:
1. MSI SCM application must be installed.
2. For Windows 7, please install .NET Framework 4.0.
    For Windows 8/8.1, please install .NET Framework 4.0 or newer version.
    Currently Windows 10 not supported.
3. Require administrator privilege during the installation.
4. Only supports on some models.

Simple Introductions:
1. Download and extract the installer to your local disk, right-click setup.exe, and select "Run as administrator" to install.

I Have an MSI GE60 2PE APACHE PRO with Windows 8.1 x64, have all of the system requirements installed, did all the simple instructions, rebooted laptop.

Silent option has created a shortcut, but didn´t create the resident process in the System Tray.

I click on the silent option shortcut, nothing happens, the program doesn´t open. I went to programs and features and the program is there.

I did the process 3 times.

So, i did give up, waiting for a final version that works instead a beta.

Thank you.

I'm curious to know, is it possible to reduce the CPU fan speed of a GS60 2QE below the 44% (~2700rpm) that is mentioned in other threads?
This is the only thing that is annoying with the GS60 in idle mode. Would be great when the fan speed could be reduced to 2000rpm or below.

Currently I get the same error as tropicalflower or Wazabi so I can't test it.

@pito4all:
These two points are only the release news/changes for the new version.

Application crashes on startup. I opened an instance of Visual Studio Debugger. The exact error is:

"An unhandled exception of type 'System.InvalidOperationException' occurred in PresentationCore.dll

Additional information: Cannot call Arrange on a UIElement with infinite size or NaN. Parent of type 'System.Windows.Controls.Grid' invokes the UIElement. Arrange called on element of type 'System.Windows.Shapes.Rectangle'."

Seems some value used directly by the interface (?!) isn't being read correctly. If i'm correct this would qualify as bad programming style :-)

My System is an MSI GS60 2PE. All required software as listed is installed.

I'm Happy now !

Changed in program to advanced, changed lowest value's to 0% and now during idle, web-browsing - Fans are switched off !
CPU fan - is always switched off, GPU fan from time-to time is switching on.
Temps are around 38-50''; with ambient temp 20-22'' !!!

Little question/thought -
1. is it safe, when fan from ~2000 rpm - immediately switching to 0 rpm (with-out some slowing down period) !?
2. is it possible to write real temperatures - in advanced mode instead of, or together with temp graph (blue to red stripe)
3. is it possible to make some bigger threshold(?) - for example ->now at 50" GPU fan is switching on and cooling aprox. till 47"; but to make so it would cool for at least 45" plus after reaching 45" - to keep it working for at least ~10-20 sec more !!!!!!  (because now it keeps switching on and off too very often, if in advanced mode, lowest values are set to 0%)

Have GT72 2QD-651NE

Silent option installs easy in win8 but when it starts Windows close it and say some problem prevent it to start.
Also it bugs dragon gaming center so it will crash when trying to open user interface.  :gg:

After uninstall of silent option and complete shutdown and boot dragon gaming center Works Again.

Any idea what gives?

I'm using Dragon Center version 1.0.1501.2801 and today i had the most  X-(( restart ever....!!!!
I was having CPU fan set to -5% in simple mode, i was using OriginPro and i also open Dragon Center to monitor Temperature. In 30 minutes i get a message about net-framework and then the screen resolution start to downscale from 1080p to 720p then 800x600 and then BOOM restart!!!! in less than a minute.... i have remove silent fan for safety reasons........

Hi, just tried on Windows 10 and it works (but I had to change my region to UK).

But I have a newbie question : why change the fan speed? I mean, if you slow it, the temperature will increase and you will damage your computer. If you speed it, it will not change anything, but you will have more noise.

I am really curious about that, please, explain me what's the purpose of this utility :D

Thanks.

i can´t find the edit button, sry
i tried uninstalling net framework 4.5 and installing 4.0 but it still doesnt work.

i´m having the problem that my cpu fan keeps ramping up and down constantly for a few weeks now. it goes completely off 1 second and ramping up to mid load for 3 seconds, constantly. i tried reinstalling intel cpu drivers and msi bios but nothing works.
anyone got an idea how to fix this?

Works like a charm on my gs70 2qe !
Note that I already had a custom fw for the fan speed and it's working as if it was the original fw !
Only got one question : Anyone tested 110% or more fan speed ?

Two things could improve this tool imo : Temperature on the bars (already asked earlier in this thread) and of course all region unlocked ! It's really a no go for me in daily use if it's not available for other than us or uk :/
But i guess that's due to the beta status !

Still, good work and thanks for this awesome and essential tool !  :biggthumbsup:

Post by: amasokin on 08-July-15, 10:30:47
Fantastic application, working great on my GS60! I was previously using a custom EC but I had to flash the EC each time I changed the temp curve. It's great to be able to do it on the fly now!

One request though (as many have already requested): please add the real temperature values to the graph in advanced mode so we know precisely what are the different tresholds. It makes it much easier to be able to set your custom temp curve when monitoring with Dragon Gaming Center for example which gives the temperatures and the fan speed.

If you don't want to add the real temp values in the app for whatever reason, could you please give them to us in this thread? What are FANCPUT1-T6 corresponding to? I would also like to know the default hysteresis value for the CPU fan!

Thanks :)

I just returned an Asus ROG g501 to the store, because it was brimming with problems and asus techs were dead silent.
My only concern with buying the MSI Ghost pro was the fan noise, but bought it anyway.
And now I find this thread, and the app works! My nb is silent under low pressure!

Thanks for this great app. Works flawlessly on my GE60 20E.

I would like to know that what happens if I reduce fan speed so much? will it works on just low Cpu performance or same Cpu but high temperature?

One more thing how to I get the Gaming Center program? It doesn't exist on my notebook's download page.

In my test, Silent Option still has its protection mechanism, it doesn't allow you stop FAN completely, FAN would still work when the temperature reach the point.
And for Gaming center, I can find it in WIN8.1 utility, http://www.msi.com/support/nb/GE60-2OE.html#down-utility&Win8.1 64,
if you want newer version, you can try to find it in newer laptop download page, such as GT80, GT72.

Hi everyone,
Thanks for your test and information.  We are studying the problem root cause.

If your model is GT72, GE60 2Qx/2Px or GS60 2Qx, and encounter any problem, you can try this "SilentOptionCleaner"
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B1oSMeecH6wcRWwyMlI3eXpFVE0/view?usp=sharing

Double click SilentOptionCleaner.exe to execute, and it will reset EC FAN table.  Restart OS and execute Silent Option again.

Your feedback can help MSI improve this FAN utility.
Thank you.

First off thanks ALOT for this software, its just what i needed for my GS60!
Is it safe to use the "SilentOptionCleaner" for GS60 2PE?

Oh, it is not the touch pad. GX70 has one touch panel for turbo cooling booster along with Keyboard backlit on/off . 

You can check this website, scroll down to 'Exclusive Cooler Boost Technology'. http://www.msi.com/product/nb/GX70-3BEGX70.html#hero-overview

Check out the keyboard layout. at the top of the keyboard is the touch panel. That is the touch panel I'm talking about.

Need some help guys. So, I tested this program on GE60 2QE Apache Pro, Windows 10.
So messing around setting and the Fan speed really changed. So I can see this work with windows 10 (Maybe not fully)
1st things i notice is if i go anywhere beyond -16%. My fan speed will drop to 0rpm and then boost to 3300rpm continuously until i reset the speed profile.
The reason I want to use this program because during gaming, the fan speed reached until 5400-5500 rpm which is the speed when cooler boost button is pressed. But then what's the point of the button? I don't want to game with such loud fan. I expected without the button pressed the speed should be 4800 - 5000 rpm. Problem is with or without button pressed, during gaming it gonna ramp up to 5500rpm anyway.
So i started using this program and use the advanced option to reduce fan speed at high temp. But my issue it even thou i changed from 85% to 70%, whenever i game, the fan will ignore this program setting and ramp up to 5500rpm.
Anyone have any idea? My only most troubled issue for this laptop at the moment.
Thanks.

In my observation, in order to prevent the overheat problem, actually MSI didn't open the lowest and highest FAN control right to users.  When system temperature reaches top level, FAN would still run in full speed, and that's exactly what you saw in gaming mode.

My power plan and in gaming center is balanced actually. Not gaming mode. But somehow, no difference in performace and fan still go full speed. Is sad that they dont allow the decrease in maximum fan speed thou. Too damn loud.

I have MSI GS60 2QE 638CZ , i am using this SILENT OPTION Utility and i set advanced mode on CPU FAN and configure percentages the minimum possible fan speed is 2800 at every percent.. but when I configure 0 percent the fan speed is 0 RPM, Is any possibility to have circa 1500 - 2000 rpm when idle, at low CPU temperature?

Msi GP60 Leopard 2PE
i like the utility however in the settings i can only go to -15% before the fan shuts down to 0 and then spikes it to 3000 rpm
with -15% i get a base ~2370 rpm but i would like it to go below that (idle that is)
on the advanced settings the lowest fan % i can do is 40%

is it because of the fan minimum voltage? or can it be configured?

Did anyone change the CPU fan for a lower RPM one? 

Whats a safe silent control settings for the CPU - at which temps should the fan starts cooling down the CPU?

I was using a version of silent option that was working fine with my msi ge40 (760m version) which randomly stopped working.

Tried installing both the versions  this thread and get the same error: firmware communication failed.

Tried updating bios and ec firmware. Tried resetting the ec chip (battery out for 5 mins). Tried updating .net framework to 4.5.2. No ball :(

Used to like using it with the fan speed raised so gaming it runs at around 70 degrees and I don't get the annoying issue is the fan spinning up and down every few minutes (much rather prefer consistent noise) and runs at about 80 degrees :(

Was there ever discovered a fix for this? Or is there any older versions anywhere I can try? :(

Thanks a lot!

i tried installing "silent option" on my new GE62 6QF(i7-6700HQ / GTX 970M)

but i am using Windows 7 Pro 64 bit

and it gives me the error:

"Incompatible Application"

i tried installing .NET 4.0.3830 (could not find precise 4.0 only)

but it doesn´t work.

any help? or is it not possible to run it on Win 7 ?

by the way,

i just discovered that when you turn your battery profile to POWER SAVER (even while you are plugged in)

it actually TURNS OFF the fan for 70% of the time
(which is great for all those times that you´re doing any writing / Office Work or Browsing or any other non-intensive work)

and when you start doing something more intensive,
the fans will automatically get turned on and start

but during those times when you want to do the heavy stuff
then just quick manually switch back to the HIGH PERFORMANCE profile
(and i am talking the regular windows battery profiles, not the MSI Shift Mode,
which of course also helps if you switch to COMFORT instead of SPORT,
to give your laptop even less a chance to turn on the fans)

and an EASY way to do this fanless + fan-ciful switching
is simply to do it via the WINDOWS KEY + X
which brings up the so called "Mobility Center" of Windows
(in Windows 7 which i use at least) and then just PIN that to the taskbar for the quick switching.

using this method you don`t need any special MSI software
and have the same problem likewise solved PERFECTLY

and no worry, the CPU does NOT overheat or anything (managed by Windows)
but keeps nicely under 50 degrees Celsius
and the power consumption around just 30 watt only
and as long as you don`t do anything CPU heavy
the Fans will NOT be turning on !!! :-)
 

at least on my GE62 6QF (i7-6700 / GTX 970M)
this method works great!

hope this helped someone
to bring more
PEACE AND QUIETNESS
into your life :-)

This is a user forum. MSI almost never interacts here. The most they do is what I call "drive-by posting" where they post an announcement but don't stay around to reply to user posts. If you want a response from MSI, you need to contact them directly using the contact points they provide on their website. I recommend starting with MSI Support (click the "Support" link at the top of this webpage).

As a side note I do have Visual Studio Installed so I might have additional vcredit and .net stuff installed. Also this is a clean install of Windows 10 from .ISO. I have SCM version 13.015.09115.

(Cross-posted from the other thread of the same name (https://forum-en.msi.com/index.php?topic=256233.0), since this one seems to be more active)

I think what's really needed (aside from, obviously, Windows 10 support), is a command-line interface. This would be really easy to do, and would make it possible to bind keyboard shortcuts to control the fan.

It would also allow independent programmers (like me!) to create other fan-control applications, if, for example, we didn't like the Silent Option UI.

The command-line version could be really simple. Just something like:

SilentOption --less

to decrease the Simple Mode slider,

SilentOption --more

to increase it,

SilentOption --set 5

to set the slider to 5 (range would be -20 to +20, same as the GUI), or

SilentOption --advanced settings.txt

to switch to Advanced Mode and import a settings file called settings.txt.

Also, shouldn't the minimum setting (-20) for simple mode let the fan turn off at low temperatures? It is called Silent Option, after all.

As it is, changing the settings takes far too many clicks, especially if you're using Advanced mode. It would help a bit if the Apply button was removed, and it just applied the settings when you change them. Having a way to open the window from the keyboard would be helpful too.

Hi Ddhdd,

Silent Option already provides this via its "Advanced mode". The settings for the CPU and GPU are separate. For example, to create a custom fan speed profile for the CPU, click on its "Advanced mode" button to turn on the advanced mode. Then click on its settings button (the small gear to the right of the "Advanced mode" button). An Advanced Mode settings window will open so you can configure six different fan power levels for various temperatures from cool to hot.

Unfortunately, the advanced mode controls are rather crude. Instead of displaying the actual temperature trigger for each setting, it displays a "Temperature" bar that uses color to indicate relative temperature. I wish it used the same kind of graph that MSI's Afterburner software uses. Unfortunately, the fan control feature of Afterburner is not active for notebooks because Afterburner is focused solely on the GPU whereas the fans in our notebooks must also cool the CPU---hence the need for a Silent Option program for notebooks.


@msiTechNB -- Some suggestions:

1 - How about implementing the same kind of fan speed control graphs in Silent Option for its advanced mode as are used in Afterburner? I think they would be much better. Also, it would be nice if Afterburner could control the fan speed of our notebooks (including a CPU fan speed profile)---then notebook overclockers wouldn't need to run two separate programs.

2 - Please reduce the size of Silent Option's user interface when used on a 4K display (3840 x 2160 pixels). It is way too big. I recommend splitting the difference and using a size that is half-way between the regular and large sizes that the program currently has.

Kind regards, David

The cool to hot bar is just a bit... imprecise.

I guess I'll be the odd-man-out on this thread. I don't mind my fan curves at all, and when things really get going, I just push the button, and crank 'em to high anyway. Doesn't bother me a bit.

On the flip side of that, what I would like to see, is something like a MINI version. A little fan icon in the notification area that turns green when you click it, and all it does is turn on (both) the fan(s) at a very minimal speed (pop-up slider adjustable, maybe 10-30%?). Barely audible, but running all the time, just enough to keep the dead air cleared out of the case cavity. The 3k first step speed can be a bit disruptive when it's constantly kicking in and out, and I'd rather have a very quiet continuous fan running, than just letting it cook by deactivating the fans at less-than-high temps, like with the current program.

This looks like a pretty cool toy to play with, but seems way over complicated for the bottom end of the spectrum. I realize what I'm pointing out is really the opposite of what this is designed for, but that's kinda the point. A K.I.S.S. model, just for the lower end (that would still be overridden by the automatic settings) with a minimal interface GUI. There's a button to kick the fans on MAX, just asking for a button to kick them on MIN.

Well anyway, that's my input.... :-)

Just tried this on our GE72 2QC Windows 10 64 bit laptop thinking Silent Option App would not work and to my surprise its fully working.
I can change both CPU and GPU fan speeds using either simple or Advanced options I can visibly see the RPM alter as I do so.

So it does work on our Windows 10 laptop. Guess I am one of the lucky ones.

Now just need to do some testing to find the optimal settings.

Hi all,

I registered only to bring good news. Here's a reply I've received from MSI customer support (my laptop is the GS-60 Ghost with Skylake processor ) :

Thanks for your response.
We want to deliver a good news, it's been confirmed that there will be a MSI software released for the Skylake models which lets the user adjusting the fan speed (this application is similar to the Silent Option). The estimated time for the application release is at 2016 Q1.

If you're not in a hurry finding a new one, you may wait for the application and with this application, the fan speed and nose you concerned can be resolved.


HURRAY!

Hi to all

I've searched the thread a little but I was unable to find info about this: When I set a custom Fan table in the advanced mode, it will be setted for all the eco mode available for the system control manager? Correct me if I am wrong, but what until now i thought that every eco settings of the SCM have a particular FAN speed table associated. For example, i have experienced that the Office mode is much more permissive with the cpu temperature and raise up the fan later than for example the Gaming mode, leaving the pc a little hotter but quiter. So, if i set a modified fan table through the Silent Option fan app, will it be applied to all the eco mode? Or just works with eco off mode? And then my second question is: If It will be applied to all the eco modes, there is not a way to switch between two or more fan table, such as, for example, between a quiter one for office and an aggressive and louder one for gaming? 

Thanks for the attention

I'd just like to be able the run the actual program which quite oddly doesn't work for its own hardware. :biggthumbsdown: 

But would be nice to have the app have profiles so the fans come on dynamically based on system/package or CPU temps as that would allow for a lot more headroom in terms of OC scalability.

Hi VerbalKint,

Question 1: It should be easy enough to test the Silent Option fan profiles vs Eco mode. Why don't you create a profile that turns the fans on full or something easy to recognize. Then try the different Eco modes and see what happens. Personally, I don't use Eco and keep it turned off.

Question 2: As for different fan profiles, the advanced mode of the Silent Option already offers this via its "export" and "import" feature. You can save (export) different profiles for the CPU and GPU so you have what you need now to create separate "quiet" and "aggressive" profiles. Then load (import) the one you want for an activity.

-------------------------------------

Personally, I'd like to see MSI combine the Dragon Gaming Center, SCM, Afterburner and Silent Option and add a full CPU overclocking capability. Then we would have one cohesive program to control our gaming notebooks and assign comprehensive configurations to various games and applications. The display (True Color) and sound effects (Nahimic) programs could also be integrated into this "uber" program---but only if these modules could be disabled by the user. For example, some users (like me) employ a more accurate color calibration system for the display and prefer a clean audio path with lower distortion in the sound system. This could be a sort of "bypass" setting for the True Color and Nahimic portions.

This comprehensive program would be designed only for notebooks (and possibly all-in-one computers). That way, unsupported desktop features would not be present (as they are now in Afterburner). It's the only approach that truly makes sense because these systems in our notebooks are so inter-dependent. The CPU, GPU and fans must be configured as a system. When launching a game or program, we need to configure all of the features controlled by the Dragon Gaming Center, SCM, Afterburner, Intel XCU, Silent Option, True Color and Nahimic. Some users may also want to add the NVidia Control Panel, SSE3 and Killer Network Manager to this list. As it stands now, MSI and its component manufacturers are creating too many smaller, fragmented programs when what we need for a powerhouse gaming notebook is a system-wide approach.

But this would be a mammoth programming job and would require some of the best programmers with deep hardware savvy. It may be too big for MSI, alone. So the second best approach may be for MSI to create a framework into which component manufacturers provide modules to control their portion of the hardware. The MSI framework would provide the cohesion and system-level control. And this would create a new problem: the component manufacturers may be unwilling to make the effort for a single computer manufacturer like MSI. So this may need to be a larger open-source effort that MSI convinces its competitors to join in for the good of us users. Yay! Happy world! Cooperation and high-quality systems-level engineering ushers in a new breathtaking era of gaming. Game software developers could distribute "configuration packs" with their games that will pre-configure the computer for optimal performance of the game. Wow! Gamers would no longer have to study into the arcane minutia of computer tech to know how to optimize their rig for winning game play.

Oh! Did I just fall asleep? Was I dreaming again? It's time to wake up. Sorry... ;-D

Kind regards, David

Well thanks for the extensive answer :biggthumbsup:

Actually I've already made a test just like you sad, I just want to check if anyone else had another version of the story and could give some info or directly from msi or from any other kind of "official" knowledge about this. And yes, my tests says that when you set a custom Fan table via Silent Option program, it will be set for all the eco mode without difference. In my opinion this is sad, if Silent Option works obligatory coupled with SCM as in the installation description is reported, it should be differenced the fan table for each of every eco mode, giving this way at the same time a good personalization service and an easy way to switch between fan profiles.
As for the second question, I know we chan import and export profiles, but i just don't see it as good way to switch between them.
I hope that maybe in a future actualization of the application this thigs should be taken in account, to link it really al least with SCM and limiting the fan profile created to the current eco mode activated permitting this way personalization and fast switch between profiles (with just a key on the keyboard).

I see your point about the integration of all the system component control app in one major hub, and actually it should be the way to follow in my opinion too, moreover to close the gap with other manufacurer such Asus and Alienware that, and this is only my opinion, sell less performant components pc's for an higher price than MSI but maybe care more about the software integration of coustom-app for hardware control and diagnostic. 

In any case for the moment a real integration between SCM and Silent Option will be enough for me.

Are you sure you didn't set Fan Control in the BIOS so it always runs at max? Sounds like its set to always be on rather than dynamically come on when the GPU approaches 80c.

No it's not on full speed all the time. :) That would have been so bad! 
It turns on every now and then at a maximum of 3,200 rpm. Still would appreciate it if it were silent all the time. Is why I'm waiting for this software.

Post by: edwin.carter on 04-December-15, 19:29:02
Err.. but its supposed to ramp up to 3.2K rpms when it detects the GPU over 80c.. I would believe that would be quite dangerous to not have the system fans come on at those temps UNLESS the fans are coming on far sooner? Otherwise, no man its working-as-designed.

Are you absolutely sure the Fan Control in the OC section of your comp's BIOS is NOT set on? Thats the exact cause of what you are experiencing: the main fan is always ON since it was set as such in the BIOS. Otherwise, did you check your Dragon Gaming Center profile? For me, I want a far more aggressive fan for both CPU and GPU so they go near full strength and 70-80c... earlier the better so venting happens sooner to keep the temps down quicker. ;)

I guess that makes sense as few MSI laptops apart from their high end models have OC abilities.

So nothing on changing anything to do with Fan Control in the BIOS? Maybe an MSI TSR is coming up on startup auto-turning the fans on then setting them to HIGH?

Checked the Gaming Center to see what fan profile you are set to? Also in Win 8.x/10 under your Power Settings check what Cooling tweaks you have set: either Active or Passive. Mine is Active but maybe for you, Passive as a test?

I am also waiting for W10 support...
Microsoft is almost forcing everyone to move to their new OS, it is time that MSI thinks about supporting it.

As EJMSI897 I can't stand having my CPU fan going crazy every minute as I am only browsing or doing some Word.
The temperature limit to activate the fan is too low and the minimum speed of the fan is too high !
I need to be able to control this.

It is my first try with a MSI laptop and for the moment I am very desapointed.

When will this be available for you GE62-6QD? The boost is way to loud, but without boost my computer sometimes gets a little warm. Being able to put the fanboost at 33% or something would be perfect.

I am waiting as well.  As for the response above I believe people, including myself, are having troubles with the software in the GS60 6QE which has the combination of Win10 and the Skylake processor.  Maybe the issue lies with that hardware/software combo, I don't know myself.  I check here often in case they rolled out with a recent update to the 'silent option' software.

For those of you waiting for Win10 support for Skylake, have any of you tried using Svet's Tools?
I have not yet received my rig, but I think if the Silent Option Utility does not perform as desired when I get it, I think I would use Svet's Tools to create an optimal Fan Curve. From the looks of the tool, it seems that it performs quite nicely.
Title: Re: "Silent Option" Fan Control Application for MSI Laptops
Post by: Monk on 20-December-15, 06:37:50
Ill search for the post and check out svets tools as I do recall people suggesting it. The ability to make a custom fan curve is simply what I am after.  I can also wait for the official msi software because of the cooler temps where I am currently so no rush there.  I am usually in comfort mode or even downshift to green during light use to avoid any real fan annoyances like others have reported. To me this thing still slays games in comfort mode I know some like to run sport all-day everyday so experiences can vary.

Hello MSI users, I'm having some troubles with my MSI GS60 2PL, the symptom is the fan going at 0rpm - 4k rpm - 0rpm like when we use a too low rpm value in MSI Silent option and I think it started after W10 update.

At the begining everything was fine, I was on windows 8.1 and my lowest fan speed was round 2900rpm at coolest temps. I also thought that this was a little bit noisy for an idle notebook and I found this utility.
I set the lowest fan speed from 48% (stock) to 44%, it was the lowest speed my CPU fan could go before turning off (43% made the fan go 0-4k-0-4k rpm like the problem I'm experiencing today)
It was acceptable noise reduction without any side effects. My EC was up to date with the one and only EC firmware provided by MSI on gs60 2pl support page...

Before updating to W10, I went back to stock fan settings and uninstalled the Silent Option utility. After updating, I experienced the "on and off fan symptom" at lowest temps when idle. Because I knew this symptom from the silent option utility, I got the idea to install it back and raise my minimum fan speed from 48 to 52%, this is the lowest "minimal fan speed" to not reproduce the symptom and this is where I am today, with an already noisy notebook + a raised minimal fan speed to avoid a more anoying on-off symptom and possible damage of the fan?
It seems like the windows 10 update, or something else, raised the minimal speed my cpu fan could spin before shuting off, weird !

I tried reseting EC with the gs60 method (off, unplugged, push pin hole) and nothing changed. I have no more solutions, maybe re-applying the only EC firmware update MSI gave us? But it's a window 8.1 EC firmware update and I don't know if it's compatible. I don't know much about MSI notebooks...

Thank you for your help and sorry for my English, not my first language.

Title: Re: "Silent Option" Fan Control Application for MSI Laptops
Post by: graneri.fabien on 01-January-16, 21:00:41
I have an issue with my fan and this tool.
In simple mode, when I put the value to -20%, if the computer is cold, the fan pass from 0 to 3000 RPM then back to 0 then 3000 RPM and it can last forever. I found that the exact limit to avoid this problem is not going under -17%. At -17% or more it stabilizes around a low value (~2400 RPM). It seems that if I chose -20%, it tries to go under 2400 RPM and does not success, that shut down the fan, so it goes to 0, and 0 is to low, the temperature goes up so it suddenly go back to a normal value and that makes a lot of noise, it's really disturbing.
I have the same issue in advanced mode, but I can't say which value for the fan is the limit for this phenomenon.
My laptop : GE60 2PL.

On my sons laptop when he logs in the silent option app is asking for administrator login before it runs. This is due to him having a child account under Windows 10. If he cancels the login Silent Option doesnt run. If I put my admin account in it runs.

How can I get the app to run with administrator access ? I have tried changing the shortcut to run as administrator but this didnt work.

Hi MSI,

I paid 1400 euros for this thing so it would be nice to get some proper support and the normal Fan Boost sounds like a vacuum cleaner.

Hi,
I have a GS60-2QE (Intel core i7-4720HQ - GeForce 970m). OS: Windows 10.

Silent Option works, but not flawlessly: in fact several times apps have "graphics" crashes (problems with the integrated Intel video card) and the app's window becomes totally black (only such windows). When it happens, if I minimize each program and click again, it works without the app totally crashing. It usually happens with Firefox and Outlook.

MSI: please support Windows 10 ASAP!!!

Please note that after a BIOS update, the GS60-2QE became noiser (they raised the minimum default RPM fan rate) and thus Silent Options is really useful...

Hello, I have an msi ge62 2qd, and I just installed this software.

It shows the sliders but I don´t know if they do anything at all. I set the fans to the minimum allowed and it is still so noisy that I just cannot be at the library, and it is really annoying. 

Is there a way to use the laptop just in a low power mode low enough not to need the fan running?? As it is now, with every option to save energy activated, the laptop unplugged and this software running, it still sounds too much to be in a library.

This is terrible!! Any option?

Excellent, it's working.
Usually the GPU fan kicks in when I start to watch a video and recently the GPU fan started to make a clicking noise. Haven't figured out if the fan vibrates and hits against the laptops chassis.
At least it's quiet now when I work.

Hi together and aspecially the Silent Option Team, 

I just bought a MSI PX60 2QD. It's a great Machine and I like it, but the fans are so noisy (although the temperatures are very low. (30 degrees Celcius)). So this would be the reason to send this great laptop back and buy an other one. Fortunately the Silent Option Fan Controll work and I can reduce the fanspeed using the advanced mode. I will test further more the next few days to get the best setting, because the fans are accelerating for a few seconds and reducing the speed moments after this. 

But my Question is: 

Will this App be available for Win10 on my machine PX60 2QD? Because if not I unfortunately have to buy an other Laptop for working. It's not tolerable for me to have this noise just working with office or surfing the web. I hope the software comes for win10 because I would like to keep this PC. It's all great but the noise is a no go! 

Nevertheless, thx for this great APP!

Greetings Sven

PS: Maybe sometimes a BIOS Upgrade would solve the Problems. this would be the best solution.

Just routine checking if they released the updated app yet, again. :hypocrite:

I believe that the issue isnt purely a win10 thing as people using win10 (with 4th/5th gen cpu)  have no problem.  But people tend to report non-functionality with the combination of the later 6th gen cpus (6700+) while running on win10. Whether that is the issue or its something else I do not know.

I am sure I am not the only one checking back on this specific thread for updates on the supposed release of the updated (working) app.  A few have emailed msi support on the issue and their collective response was that an updated app is to be released Q2-2016. But there was a more recent post narrowing the time between Mar/Apr.

Title: Re: "Silent Option" Fan Control Application for MSI Laptops
Post by: Monk on 15-March-16, 20:44:25
Thanks for the info. I am currently testing the Dragon Center App from this Vortex Support Download (Utility Section) (https://www.msi.com/product/vortex/support/Vortex-G65-6QD-SLI.html#down-utility&Win10 64).  I am on the GS60 6QE Skylake/x64 W10 combo.  I can confirm fan settings do in fact work with both cpu/gpu.  *sidenote* The fn f7 ('Shift' Shortcut) doesnt work. That is the only issue I have come across so far. Maybe someone has resolved this or knows how to but I have no problem manually selecting shift mode within the Dragon Center App. Then again this was made for a different platform with small similarities (skylake/win10).

You dont get numerical values for temp just a blue/red bar on the temp vs rpm fan curve.  The app controls the fan fine but there was something that was mentioned in some previous post I had read. On this platform (gs60 6qe) I have found a dead spot between 1% fan and ~48% I observed no real difference in the fan rpms within that bracket. Beyond 48% the fan is adjusted accordingly as well at 0% the fan is turned off.  *sidenote* The adjustment is not instantaneous, ie if you want to test and set fan to whatever increment it gradually ramps up or down within a few seconds maybe I am just not used to this.

 I apparently have never experienced the system kicking on at such a high fan speeds I tried 80-90%.. WOW thats loud. Now when both gpu/cpu go up high it sounds like a wind tunnel.

Last thoughts: 1)Hopefully there will be a dragon center or dragon gaming center that is updated to include fan controls for the GS60 6QE platform because we don't need to see other options for the led configurations and other little things that differ on the vortex. Ill keep on checking this forum and driver/utility downloads in hopes for this.. 2)I would also like the 'shift' hotkey to work but in terms of fan control I am happy for now.

I asked the support before. I have the MSI GS60 6QE with 970M in it, they said that because of the laptop is so thin, the fan has to be running at speed of 2900rpm minimum in order to keep it cool and not burning any thing inside the laptop. So yes, its normal and that's why we are all here waiting for silent option to be updated to support skylake CPUs.

I am currently testing the Dragon Center App from this Vortex Support Download (Utility Section) (https://www.msi.com/product/vortex/support/Vortex-G65-6QD-SLI.html#down-utility&Win10 64).  I am on the GS60 6QE Skylake/x64 W10 combo.  I can confirm fan settings do in fact work with both cpu/gpu.  *sidenote* The fn f7 ('Shift' Shortcut) doesnt work. That is the only issue I have come across so far. Maybe someone has resolved this or knows how to but I have no problem manually selecting shift mode within the Dragon Center App. Then again this was made for a different platform with small similarities (skylake/win10).

You dont get numerical values for temp just a blue/red bar on the temp vs rpm fan curve.  The app controls the fan fine but there was something that was mentioned in some previous post I had read. On this platform (gs60 6qe) I have found a dead spot between 1% fan and ~48% I observed no real difference in the fan rpms within that bracket. Beyond 48% the fan is adjusted accordingly as well at 0% the fan is turned off.  *sidenote* The adjustment is not instantaneous, ie if you want to test and set fan to whatever increment it gradually ramps up or down within a few seconds maybe I am just not used to this.

 I apparently have never experienced the system kicking on at such a high fan speeds I tried 80-90%.. WOW thats loud. Now when both gpu/cpu go up high it sounds like a wind tunnel.

Last thoughts: 1)Hopefully there will be a dragon center or dragon gaming center that is updated to include fan controls for the GS60 6QE platform because we don't need to see other options for the led configurations and other little things that differ on the vortex. Ill keep on checking this forum and driver/utility downloads in hopes for this.. 2)I would also like the 'shift' hotkey to work but in terms of fan control I am happy for now.
This works perfectly! I have the same laptop except mine is 4k and it completely stops the fan! Now i dont have to suffer the loudness of the cpu anymore

Work well indeed ... Do you keep the first two sliders to 0 ? I noticed that the fan kicks in when it gets closer to 60 C. 

Mine (GS60 6QE 2k) idles around 55 C when surfing the internet ... is it safe to have the CPU at that temperature ? 

Very helpful forum 8-)) thks guys

Good to hear its working for others!  As far as cpu temps, I have read you can go up to 50-55 but for extended and long duration use the max should not exceed 60C where premature wear would eventually occur.  I could be wrong and others also might have different ideas on this.  

I did some more testing.  So I generally always have the cpu fan on its lowest settings (anywhere between 1%-48%) because I like the cpu to be as cool as possible load or not. For the past two days I have tried a new CPU fan curve. 0 50 65 70 80 80   While messing with the settings and watching temps the temp thresholds for the first 2 settings seem to be ~37C and 47C.  If the temp drops 2-3C the fan drops to the next lowest setting. *note* I am doing these tests in green mode. Right now normal browsing/simple usage (for 3+ hours now) with the  0 50 65... setting I am staying between 43 and 47C. I will admit I like the silent operation... But I might switch back to always running at ~50% fan just as a personal preference.

Seriously? Dragon Gaming Center is defacto on all mid/high end MSI laptops since the start. Thats not remotely whats at issue here for months upon months: its the fact the Silent Option s/w still to this day does not work on Skylake+Win10 even though those have been out for almost 8 months now. I am still waiting to have better control over both my laptop fans to more efficiently control their RPMs when certain temps are reached as right now its no where as dynamic as I want them to be.

It is DRAGON CENTER, not DRAGON GAMING CENTER. It is a upgraded version in some ways.

I just downloaded it and id have to say its pretty awesome. way better then the orig app or whatever. Don't understand why they don't release this one for other models, you can control CPU & GPU fans. Only thing that don't work right (haven't tested) is the shift mode within the newer Dragon center, as its made for the Vortex system, can still use stock Dragon center to control it tho. Neat
Title: Re: "Silent Option" Fan Control Application for MSI Laptops
Post by: edwin.carter on 01-April-16, 00:49:36
Wow that's EXACTLY what I was looking for especially the ability to dynamically increase both CPU and GPU fans so they provide about the same fan speeds even if CPU is at 100% utilization so that the entire laptop is given full air flow and not just the CPU (although its still not full linked the way I like it as you can have apps that only use the CPU and not the GPU so the GPU fan won't kick to max since its not used). Well.. its something.. not fully there but getting better. Everything else: nice! Why this isn't mentioned strongly anywhere else is really shocking! This is a must for any MSI laptop user.

Edit: So now how about we have a LINK option for the fans so when either CPU or GPU Utilization goes up, both fans go up also regardless if used or not. Why? To promote FULL laptop venting to encourage better airflow. I'd love to just have the option! This would mean far faster overall dynamic cooling.

I also noticed that on top of the 'shift' fn key not working that settings tend to reset after restart.  I came up on a random post stating MSI said CC is used for temporary changes.  If you want settings to hold you need to go through Bios... But at least we have some functionality?! haha.  Still hoping for a simpler updated silent option.

Hi there !
It seems like, for the skylake laptop now, the only option is using the Dragon center from Vortex Support Download (Utility Section) (https://www.msi.com/product/vortex/support/Vortex-G65-6QD-SLI.html#down-utility&Win10 64).

Yep.. broken record here: waiting since Nov with my specs below (Skylake) for it to work.

Must take months and month to figure out how Skylake Processors work.. :undecided:

Would be also nice to have that bad issue with the SuperPort + true USB3.1 devices plugged in also.. running latest Win10 Pro .164 version and still.. tada.. even after TB3 port firmware update.. many months of waiting for a fix.

There should be a whole thread on the Thunderbolt 3 (TB3) Tech.
You mentioned that you updated the firmware in the BIOS for the Thunderbolt 3 controller. There is a help PDF file that has instructions saying that the Thunderbolt 3 update tool needs a 'Thunderbolt 3' device attached before it can be applied.
https://www.msi.com/files/pdf/Thunderbolt_update_en.pdf

It seems TB3 is like this Silent Option app. Its a long time in the making, the same as most new upcoming TB3 Docks are still in USB-IF certification processes, you can pre-order, but they won't be ready for sale until mid 2016. So from May 2015 there is still very little TB3 devices etc, simply because its a major change to industry standards.
Some light reading..

Hmmm...There is one question with that. Do you see any download link on your model download page? So far I only see Dragon Gaming Center and I do not know if they would release it for your model since it only offered for Vortex.

skylake/win10 owner here. Using Dragon Center for the Vortex and it works great.  Seems like having the cpu fans kick in at 65C is the way to go (4th vertical line from left to right)?

Also, under System Monitor -> Power Consumption I get a W value which seems fine. But sometimes it changes to AC and then back to a number value like 77W. Anyone know why?

I'm also disappointed after buy ge72 6qd for over 1.5k euro, about while ago. First an major problem is heat on left side just under keyboard where my hand stay nearly all the time when I play and work, this place was really hot and my fan dot kick to faster speed, I guess this coming from 1tb Hdd, I change this hdd to sdd, after that is a little better but still is very warm.
I give some times w8 for release new version off silent fan option this should fix my problem, any other software for controlling fan don't work on this laptop, but looks like this never happen, for now only way to reduce this temperature is kick fan on maximum, and sit front of hover all day.

Why do you need a TB3 device actually connected to the port in order to update its firmware. That seems quite backward. :biggthumbsdown: No one seems to know what's going on to fix all those SuperPort issues with many connected devices like true USB3.1 devices (failure to copy one way but works the other) or disk controller errors when a USB3.0 docking station is connected.

I haven't yet so both Dragon Center and Dragon Gaming Center still reside together. I have noticed Dragon Center offering high overclock options than the Gaming one.

I have noticed that after coming out of sleep that the laptop does not auto-engage the fans dynamically: I have to first launch Dragon Center (it is always loaded btw in the tray and on startup) then close it then the dynamic fans work as I set them in the profile. :undecided:  Whats the deal with that?

Many of us are still waiting for this software. What happened to supporting the new model laptops? Your fan complaints are in the highs, I can do a simple google search with thousands of people complaining about your crappy fans. I've been patient....Been 6 months I had the GS60 6QE, and still no support?...Let's not even get to the customer support.

Get your stuff together MSI, you've been falling off. Most people I know with MSI notebooks have already RMA'd them once or twice within the first two years they owned them.

Need to control it because I purchased the notebook is not 100% for gaming, even so, that noise is also bad.

The notebook need THIS! The customer need a silent environment to finish the job!

Also, the fan noise makes me hardly recognise the Sounds (Does dynaudio needed or you can just simply remove this cause i CAN'T heat IT any more under that stupid fan speed)

- You checked the BIOS is not forcing the High Power Options so fan is always on? Are the fans always on and at max?
- You have the latest Dragon Center running so you can control both CPU and GPU fans?
- You running processes maybe in the background with such high CPU utilization that its forcing the fans always on to compensate?
Title: Re: "Silent Option" Fan Control Application for MSI Laptops
Post by: luziyang on 28-April-16, 22:30:13
Haven't checked the BIOS yet, but it since the fan noise is a common problem for all MSI NB. In 

Also, the 3000rpm is not the max speed it is just the normal one. The max should be 6000rpm if you press the boost cooling it will force two fan to run at 6000 RPM.

Of course I got a latest Dragon Centre but I don't think it provide the fan control menu (for Window 10 - NO).
I mean, the fan noise, it doesn't make any sense cause an i7 processor need a 3000rpm fan speed to cool it down when I JUST read a PDF (nothing big running background).

It is just ridiculous.
Title: Re: "Silent Option" Fan Control Application for MSI Laptops
Post by: edwin.carter on 29-April-16, 00:16:38
Hmm no max fan speed is ~3600RPMs, bro... anything else would be insane. I have thoroughly tested the CPU and GPU fan speeds on my laptop and 6k RPM is impossible for that form factor.

Btw, my Dragon Center stopped working for the first time.. creating a thread for it as I cannot figure out how to fix it. Started happening when my laptop came out of sleep and the screen went all wacko forcing me to hard-reset. :biggthumbsdown:

The metrics are completely wrong: those fans cannot remotely go double what they are rated. 3600 RPM is tops.. must be a reporting bug.

Well, actually, I do not care about how fast it runs. Just because that noise is killing me, I have to think about if it is running too fast.

That is the reason I post here to need a fan control software as Silent option could be the one. Unfortunately, it is not support to Win10. 

Plus, I do believe if you do a little bit researches on "MSI NB fan noise" you will find I am not the only one complain this.
Title: Re: "Silent Option" Fan Control Application for MSI Laptops
Post by: edwin.carter on 29-April-16, 16:38:47
But you don't need fan control.. I never had it out of the box so its either forced-on in the BIOS or you have a process running in the background eating cycles like nuts OR XTU is not running properly and needs to be repaired on your laptop (as where the heck are your CPU, GPU, and Memory metrics in your screen cap above)? Thats a problem. For some reason, Intel's XTU app is tied to MSI OC'ing laptops so if its not working right, things can go screwy.

This is just SICK.

I suspect because they (MSI) are having a heap of trouble writing software for the latest windows 10 as demonstrated with the silent option fan control software.
BTW my Bios switch for fan control is disabled.
My experiences with the fan noise problem is when the system first loads and all the drivers and startup programs load the fans have a 'surge', straight after MSI Gaming Centre loads. Sitting idle sometimes and most often the cpu reads at a very high temp of 68C and the gpu 38C and a reading of 30% cpu usage. Checking back on the performance monitor shows nearly every time a stupid windows program running in the background hogging the cpu.
BTW I have a GT72S-6QE, its sitting on a zalman laptop cooler with a huge 400mm fan and I still have high temps but I live in an area were it is sub tropical and average temps are 25 - 30C.
Maybe the silent option fan control software might address these problems. maybe it won't as there is many variables concerning temps, fans and how the system/NB is situated.

Fantastic, WORKING! :biggthumbsup: 

Now have to see if it remembers my custom CPU/GPU fan settings after waking up from sleep on Win10 PRO.

Also.. PLEASE can we have an option to link both CPU and GPU fans so they both go up at the same time regardless if CPU is idle but GPU isn't (and vice versa)! This will drastically promote total laptop air venting rather than favouring one side of it.

Update.. well, it was working fine then when I sleep and wake/resume the laptop its a black screen and reboots on its own after 3-5sec. Come back in.. all ok but noticed under the SYSTEM/ACPI process its constantly running at 12% and can't be stopped. :undecided:  Also, sleep/resume keeps not working (as mentioned above) Had to uninstall it and everything seems back to normal (including sleep/resume). :sad:  Will conduct more tests just to be sure.

Greetings,

I'd like to know if there is any compelling reason to update if the previous version of the Silent Option is working fine in our notebook now? I haven't had any trouble and I don't want to create any with a new version that has an unanticipated problem.

Regarding sleep and hibernate...
The number of MSI gaming notebook owners here who are having trouble with sleep and hibernate modes is really surprising because I cannot believe these modes are being used. I thought most buyers of an MSI gaming notebook were "power users" who want to get every bit of performance and life out of their notebook. One of the first things a power user does who is booting from an SSD is get rid of both the sleep and hibernate modes. And it's not just about performance---it's also about safety. You see, there has been a historic correlation between SSD failure and waking from sleep or hibernate mode. If you research the internet you'll see various theories why this happens---but, as far as I know, no one has authoritatively proved the mechanism of the failure.

My advice is to get rid of sleep and hibernate. If you're booting from an SSD, your boot time into Windows should be only a few seconds so you don't really save that much time. The only thing you give up is being able to quickly resume an application where you left off. But I've seen too many of the big applications that I use for media development become unstable after "waking" so that's another reason I don't use sleep or hibernate.

You can assign the function of your notebook's on/off button so it will shut down instead of putting it to sleep or hibernate. You can control the same thing when you close the lid of your notebook. You can disable the sleep button (F12). And you can go into all of the power plans and disable sleep and hibernate there. Then you can disable hibernate at the OS level and reclaim all of the SSD space that is permanently allocated to it. You should be able to find instructions on this stuff easily on the internet. This is like 101 level stuff for optimizing a computer for an SSD.

Kind regards, David

A laptop that cannot do the basic function of sleep/resume is not a laptop I want to own. Such a function is an extremely basic aspect of owning a laptop -- if it cannot do something so rudimentary as come out of sleep then WHAT ELSE more complicated can it not certainly do? :undecided:

Your exactly right because the computer manufactures for some 5 years now have been dragging their heels on SSD's, there was a cloud of mystery behind the proper use of SSD's first off and there has been lots of debate and preferences expressed by others as to the operating state of SSD's.
For instance, why would you need a page file at 16GB when your system carries 16Gb of ram and the continual writing to that file degrades the life of your SSD.
next why have a system go into sleep when the system boots within 10 - 15 seconds.
I have NO page file and NO hibernation file.

Thanks paulatoohey...

But I didn't intend to move off the subject of the Silent Option BETA software. So let's please stay on-topic. Regarding OS optimization, I've done the same thing and much more. No virtual memory for the OS here (but it is required at the application level for some programs like Photoshop, HD video editors, CAD programs, 3D modelers, etc).

The thing to understand about the sleep and hibernate modes is that they have NEVER been stable. Microsoft has worked very hard to make them stable but it has not achieved it with any version of Windows. Win 8.x appeared to be an improvement but Win 10 is horrible. There are lots and lots and lots of reports of OS instability and applications freaking upon waking. Win 10's sleep and hibernate modes have also been wreaking havoc with video drivers---just ask NVidia.

The point is: The problems observed with Silent Option waking from sleep or hibernate mode may not be the fault of MSI at all. We just don't know. There is a strong indication that this problem may be out of their hands.

Sleep and hibernate modes are an old hangover from the time when Windows computers took many minutes to boot from a slow HD. They were Microsoft's attempt to make Windows seem faster than it really was. And it created new problems that are still with us today. Namely, that many users do not reboot Windows as often as they should. Microsoft has never been able to fully solve OS problems from third-party applications like memory leaks. They can't even keep their own code free of these problems. So you need to reboot on a regular basis to keep your computer running in tip-top condition. Disabling sleep and hibernate help solve this problem. And, like I wrote previously, they are largely obsolete when booting from a fast SSD.

Don't let the sleep and hibernate modes interfere with your ability to use the Silent Option BETA software, overclocking tools, and the many applications that don't wake well from sleep or hibernate. Just disable these modes and you'll have less trouble.

Computers are never perfect. You have to manage their flaws and focus on the important stuff. I bought my GT80 Titan to develop code and create media. Many owners purchased their MSI gaming notebook to have a luggable gaming platform. Don't let sleep and hibernate mode interfere with the real reasons you purchased your expensive notebook. Let's be grateful that MSI has continued to work on their beta software and are allowing us to test it---that way we can benefit from it before it is officially released and they benefit by having it tested by a lot of users. A lot of companies don't do that.

Kind regards, David

NICE!
Version 1.0.1603.3001 for the skylake series works very well.
Observations during install and pre-use.
1. Install worries free and then wanted to reboot.
2. Reboot had problems. I had nothing connected to the system and the system actually stalled and booted twice before it actually moved into the OS startup. Which I am querying as why did it do that, has it changed something in the BIOS...????
3. Upon entering the OS I observed to my horror the temps went up to 78C on the CPU and 45C for GPU, YES I could adjust the fan speeds and they (fans) gradually came into play and speeded up and the temps lowered somewhat but not much.
4. I had had enough and it was late, I shut-down the NB and have just started the NB again and WOW the temps are totally different now as displayed in the screen shot.
I use to get around 45C for GPU and 58C for CPU on startup and the fan speeds were high using the dragon gaming centre as an indicator of status.
Now the temps are nearly 10 degrees lower on startup. I am impressed.

Hi tsourick,

In case you hadn't noticed, this is MSI's gaming notebook forum and the tools here are designed primarily for them. That isn't to say that MSI won't make a future version of its Silent Option software for non-gaming notebooks like your PE60 6QE but it is probably much lower on their priority list. Contact MSI Support directly to make your request. These forums are user-to-user and your request probably won't be seen here by the folks at MSI who need to see it.

Kind regards, David

[Problem here]

I got a GE62 6QD with i7-6700HQ. 

The basic mode was not really work...No matter how I adjust, the minimum fan speed is ~3000RPM as the capture I attached. 

Same as the advanced mode. I can shut down the fan by pulling all down to 0%. But, it seems 1% and 11% and 22% is the same output as ~3000RPM.
I can't always keep it down cuz the temperature will increase rapidly. when the temperature high enough to the valve level, the 3000RPM comes back even I set it for 1% (OMG). It is very annoying.

I only want to control the fan speed to ~1500rpm, it suppose to be with a acceptable sound level and provide some cooling for the CPU.  

Please, fix this BUG. MSI have done a good job to make it support win10 as I can now keep the fans down when I just read a PDF.

The fans can't go below 3000rpm. I've seen them at 2800rpm with auto settings.

1% or 20% are pretty much 50%. However you can go above 100%!

Post by: luziyang on 12-May-16, 00:29:01
Yes, the fan speed seems can not go below 3000RPM. 

By using the Silent option, any setting for 1% and 50% will got a 3000PRM. But you can set above 100% to make it higher...

Finally, it launched! :agrees:  I love you guys! The pain is gone.

The problem was due to installation order. (details here https://forum-en.msi.com/index.php?topic=270201) 

But, it seems like it doesn't lower the fan speed. I set the slider to minimums (left) and RPM stays at around 3000. While the rightmost position makes it higher up to 3750.

So, my GE62 6QC fans for some reason max out at 4848 rpm (avg 4800rpm) for anything over at or above 100% unless I use the Cooler Boost button which pushes them upto ~7000rpm (ie 150%). Which is a shame as at 150% they are simply too loud and in most cases overkill for cooling.

Also, the Skylake versions looks nice, but it is a step backwards honestly. It is time consuming to fine tune the sliders as they jump around a bit too much, so a return of the text entry would be nice. And I would love to see the import/export options return.

AND would be nice to link both CPU and GPU fan speeds together AS AN OPTION so if GPU processes go up its fan not only increases but also CPU's as well - this would provided better overall system venting.

Hello,
thank you for this software, but I have problem with RPM.

Notebook:  GE72 2QE Apache Pro
Silent Option:  1.0.1510.2301
I set Advanced mode for CPU and GPU.

CPU fan 100% = 6000 RPM
CPU fan max. = 110% = 6666 RPM (larger value than 110% has same RPM)

CPU Fan power:
Code: [Select]
Default values
-----------------------------------------------------
 %           | 0 |   50 |   56 |   66 |   76 |   86 |
 RPM (calc.) | 0 | 3000 | 3360 | 3960 | 4560 | 5160 |
 RPM (real)  | 0 | 3265 | 3380 | 3966 | 4571 | 5161 |


My values
-----------------------------------------------------
 %           | 0 |   50 |  100 |  110 |  110 |  110 |
 RPM (calc.) | 0 | 3000 | 6000 | 6600 | 6600 | 6600 |
 RPM (real)  | 0 | 3265 | 6000 | 6666 | 6666 | 6666 |
 

All is works OK until the moment, when the CPU temperature reaches 90°C and CPU start throtlling. After that CPU fan RPM go down to value 5160 and never go back to values adequate to CPU temperature. See the table this value is 86% from Default values table. This situation affected GPU fan too, even though GPU temperature is lower than.
When I disable Interl Turbo Boost, CPU isn't too hot, temperature doesn't reach 90°C and fan works OK.

MSI, is this a bug?

Please help, thank you.

I recently bought a Gaming Notebook GS72 6QE. The power is awful but the disadvantage in form of a very very very annoying cpu fan noise was going on my nerves. Sure the program silent option is one possibility but only reduces the problem a bit. I set the first 3 sliders on cpu section to zero and used Windows 10 power settings to reduce cpu etc. It doesn´t really helped because the cpu get hotter and hotter and the fan runs when it reaches 60 degree. After some minutes it is repeating. And on the other side the surface gets really hot. Other fan speed reducing software had the same effect. I spent a week in trying to unlock the bios or reduce the ground speed of the cpu fan but 3700 rpm seems to be its minimum. I should bought a GT72 whose fan is running at lower speed.
The only solution for me was Intels Extreme Tuning utility. I used this to undervolt my cpu an so the surface gets coller and the cpu doesn´t get hotter than 55 degree in standard tasks like surfing the net and doing office tasks. Keep in mind you cannot change the multiplier on this notebook.

I uploaded my profiles to my webspace: [url=https://it-support-ffm.de/downloads/xtuprofiles/]https://it-support-ffm.de/downloads/xtuprofiles/ (https://it-support-ffm.de/downloads/xtuprofiles/)[/url]

Profile FLR3 is the medium one with slighly less undervolting and FLR is the maximum undervolting. 

Disclaimer: 

Be carful while changing the settings.It took nearly 10 bluescreens to find out the maxixmum settings. Everything you try is at your own risk and i am not responsible for errors and damages which could occur.

@MSI: You should consider changing the design for GS72. It is a shame that this not really cheap device has such a design flaw and getting hot and noisy. I think even gamers don´t need always maximum performance on all day tasks and like to work in silence.

I would like this to work for GE72 6QF.
Since a BIOS and EC Firmware update, my fan speeds went from 8000 RPMs to 6000 RPMs. Temps went from a comfortable 55-60°C to a 75-80°C (average between CPU and dGPU). Rep at support said those are normal temps, but I want the lower temps to protect my system from heat caused issues.

Hi, I'm hoping someone sees this and can shed some light.

I've just purchased a new GP62 6QF Leopard Pro laptop (also known as MS-16J5) which I've only had for 24 hours, from the second I turned the machine on the CPU fan was running at 3000+ RPM before windows had even loaded. It then stays at 3000 RPM even when idle. I've updated the bios, updated the firmware etc but it hasn't changed anything.

Firstly, I assume this isn't normal for the fan to always be on from the second you hit the power button. During my searching I came across this forum mentioning the silent option application, I checked the supported models list and while lots of similar models are listed, mine isn't. After trying everything I could find online to lower the fan speed I decided to just install the program.

The program seems to be working perfectly and is doing everything I hoped it would.

My questions are:

1. Why was my laptop running the CPU fan at 3000 RPM all the time by default even when idle, is something wrong?
2. Is it safe for me to use this program despite my model not being in the supported list?

Thank you in advance.

 Rep at support said those are normal temps

I might want to show them my GPU running at 92C then. Oh wait, I tried once before...

With cooler boost 3 running full wack as well. Pre updating my bios and EC, both my CPU and GPU fan would hit 7200rpm using CB3 and my temps would be a nice and low 70C. But since updating not only is my max rpm lower, but the GPU fan is a whole 1000rpm slower, at around 6000rpm and ofc, temps hit 92C. On top of that, the GPU does NOT thermal throttle. Even at 92C, the Tmax for the chip, the core still operates at max boost frequency. And there is no fan override when the temps get this high. There is no way they can be this stupid, It's not rocket science to see that sometime is wrong.

msiTechNB, is it possible if you could post a picture or update this program with actual degrees in celsius numbers. There is a certain temp I am trying to achieve because my i7 4720hq  begins to get hot when playing games that utilize a lot of the cpu, like WoW. It is hard to figure out the temp I want to achieve with the fan curve options in advanced settings just using a bar that is blue to red, hot to cold, and does not have actual temp numbers. I praise you for developing this program, I have looked everywhere for something that could control fan speed on my MSI GE72 2QE Apache laptop, and could not find ANYTHING that could even recognize that there were even fans on my device besides Dragon Gaming Center but it only sees one fan and it also can't be used to create a fan curve profile.

I also want to ask a quick question. when using this program is it possible to set percentages higher than 100%? or will it just max at 100% if I set them at, say, 120-150%?

Heya!

So I had installed the updated EC firmware 6J5EMS3.108 for my GE62-6QC, which basically lets the fan run constantly.

However, it runs a constant 3000rpm, which isn't that horrendous, but looking back, I actually prefer the old firmware where it kicks in when the CPU reaches a certain temperature.

So I would really like for the this to work with the GE62-6QC,  so I can switch between either a constant running fan or an automatic mode.

As an extra added question I'd like to know if it's even possible to get back to the older firmware?

It runs on constant 3000rpm because msi screwed up on how are the components located inside the laptop. And for example to cool the left palm rest it needs air flow because without it it gets very hot if you have original hdd inside. Also cpu gets to 50 deg c and that also heats everything inside. So now with fans working all the time it is cooler but it will make all the fans to die quicker and also makes some noise very noticable in quiet env.  or at night.

Hmm.. running at a constant 1325rpm in idle for both CPU and GPU and temps stay @ 43-48c and note my overclock in my sig so... standard ambient temps. Obviously @ load they go to the roof. Dunno why people have constant fans running as if if in the BIOS it is forced (shouldn't be). Fans should spin up when your keyboard LEDs come on then within seconds spin down. Something is wrong for some people.

I got the GE62 6QD and idle temps are at CPU 38c and GPU 33c .. One fan runs around 3000rpm while the other one is off.. when I click the boost button and let it run for 5 mins while both fans run at 6000 rpm. Idle temps with boost are CPU 34 and GPU 29. I'm pretty happy with the Idle temps..

Yer temps make sense (2.6Ghz+3.1 Turbo Boost CPU / 970M GPU)  but the constant speed of those fans make it loud-ish for normal use, no? 1300rpms here is barely audible (minor hum) but once I max load my CPU/GPU/both then I max out @ ~3700rpm and its kind loud although not annoying really (put on headphones and its all good).

MSI Vortex sort of belongs to laptop section, it has been told by MSI staff here. And Dragon Center at least partially works with laptops, I can switch my coloured keyboard modes, adjust fan speed, monitor system, launch games etc on GT70 0NE. Before opening your mouth check your facts!

Actually, Dragon Center is way better application for my GE62 6QF than Dragon Gaming Center. It is more intuitive and better looking in my opinion.
Most important is the fact that if I go to advanced option for fan control and move first slider to minimum, the fan speed goes to 0 FINALLY!! :D
Other parts of this app also works fine so I will stick to it for now.

Yes, on my GT70, too. But then it ramps up momentarily to 2000 rpm for a couple of seconds and to 0 again  so I rather keep it at stable1250 rpm.

I'm guessing that when Your fan speed is 0 then You get higher temp on cpu and that couses fan to kick in for few seconds. I noticed that on my laptop, but I have moved second bar to 0 in fan utility and after that cpu needs higher temp for fan to spin.

Honestly, I'd rather have the fans running all the time & make the fans degrade quicker than the laptop components degrading faster because of heat.
It doesn't help that I'm not always in an air-conditioned place.

Thanks to Silent Option though, and contrary to its name, I was able make the fans always running and a bit noisy for the purpose of constantly cooling it.
I wish the fan adjustments were in a slope format though, and that the software mentions on exactly what temperature the fanspeed changes on each level.

Also, uhh, the max fan speed when we click on the fan button at the top-right corner is 6000rpm, but with Silent Option it seems we can get it up to 7000rpm! o_o;;
I'd rather not super-max the fan speed though, even though I did say I'd prioritize cooling over the fan lifespan. I'd crank it only up to 6500rpm.
Call me paranoid if you will.

Meanwhile, 3000rpm +/- is the minimum for me, and that is already rather noisy? I don't find it annoyingly noisy, but eh I guess this is already a subjective matter. ¦3

Uhh, naturally. Though, I recommend setting the second bar's slider to the minimum speed your fan can run. You don't want your laptop innards to degrade faster because of not bearing with minimal fan noise. …though eh, I'm just being paranoid.

And Dragon Center at least partially works with laptops, I can switch my coloured keyboard modes, adjust fan speed, monitor system, launch games etc on GT70 0NE.
Partially? I say it fully works with laptops!…provided enough features are support with the laptop one has, anyway. It works on my GE62 2QD, at least.

I have to thank you for sharing Dragon Center. Indeed, it's more intuitive, although it is rather inconsistent. It still needs the other MSI apps like MSI True Color to work properly, but can do away with Silent Options. Also definitely doesn't work with Dragon Gaming Center because it messes with the SHIFT feature & stuff, so don't run it with that. =w=;

CPU | dGPU:
Minimum my lappy can achieve is 50% or ~3000RPM anyway. 100% is 6000RPM (when fan button is turned on), and lappy super-maxes out at 7000RPM.
Take note: These numbers are me being paranoid of laptop heat tho, so numbers are high. =w=;

Aaahh, well, auto is worse, it doesn't even reach like 80% of your fan speed at the hottest temperature, I believe. >.<
At least make it like 100% on the hottest one, then sloping down towards 50% or so on the other settings.

In advanced mode, I see some options with the fans at 150%. Shouldnt max be 100%? If not,what is the max %?
Title: Re: (Updated:2016/05/06)"Silent Option" Fan Control Application for MSI Laptops
Post by: lloyd_dunamis on 23-August-16, 01:27:52
The max is whatever is the max your device's fan can handle.  In my GE62 2QD's case:
Max the fan can spin up to = 7000RPM (116.67%.)
100% = 6000RPM

Any higher percentage (i.e. 118-150%) won't make any more difference in speed.

The 100% is probably what MSI set as some kind of "base max speed" for the Fan Boost button, and then any other varying fan speeds are calculated from there. 'May be an anti-wear measure for the fan, or another marketing strategy where "This program can boost your fan, exceeding its max speed!" or something. But that's just me.

this Silent Fan app works PERFECT on my GE62 6QF using Windows 7 Pro
reducing my fan speed to COMPLETELY SILENT down to 0%

but you have to do it via its ADVANCED tab (auto and basic are too weak)
and there then pull down the left 2 sliders all the way down to 0%
both on the CPU + GPU tab.

and it works especially great when coupled with the Windows internal "Power Saver" Mode
(which is my favorite of all for SAFE and nonstop low energy use, when plugged in all the time)
and working fanless is even also possible in the Windows "High Performance" Mode as-well
as long as you are simply doing basic tasks that wont kick up the CPU temperature above 60° Celsius
(and which is plenty of room for Office, Image Editing, or Surfing up to like 20 tabs in parallel etc.).

and then for the QUICK switch between the "Power Saver" Mode
(which again i have on most of the time, even when being plugged in)
and the "High Performance" Mode (which is about 4x faster in almost any task)
for this quick switching i have the windows internal app
called "Windows Mobility Center" pinned to my taskbar,
which i also recommend anybody put as-well who is using Win 7,
as with it you can so easily switch 
between a fully quiet laptop mode
and a highest performance mode 
whenever you need it.

and thus effectively, i have now a FANLESS 15" laptop
that is not a weak machine, but a strong Quadcore i7 6700HQ laptop
and on which i can enable the fan whenever i need the power,
by simply doing a quick switch, to the High Performance Mode.

so that, needless to say,
i am very satisfied with this set-up,
and shall remain with MSI laptops for years to come
especially exactly because of this so great option,
to have a power-laptop like this also run
in a completely silent mode as-well.

On my GL72 6QD I have the same problem with Silent Option and MSI Dragon Center. This model has only one fan for CPU cooling. When I choose the basic settings and set the slider to the lowest level my fan is working on about 3000rpm which is a too loud for me to hear it all the time. What is really helpful then is to set advanced settings and put all the sliders to the lowest level. This way fan is disabled until temperature raise to about 70C (because last slider on the right is locked and can't be on the lowest level). I'm really happy with this setting, but when fan starts to work on 70C it accelerates to about 4500rpm and never stops. Even if temperature returns to 40C it's still working. Then I need to choose basic settings and after the fan slows down to 3000rpm I have to switch to advanced again so fan stops. Do you have the same problem? Is there any solution to set the fan to be disabled and when the temperature is high enough to start working but only to the point when temperature is low enough again and then to be turned off automatically?

Hello, I have the MSI GL62 6QF-849XES and the fan speed is at 50% since I press the power button. The thing is that is so annoying, specially when I go to the library.
I tried Silent Option and whatever I do never works, I also tried Afterburner, SpeedFan and CPUID Hardware Monitor and none of those works. I also looked on the Bios but I didn't found anything that could make it go lower.
I do not understand why MSI puts the standard velocity at 50% if I have the option to put it at 100% with the cooler boost when it is hot.

Does anyone knows anything that could help me?

It's not really an issue, at least I won't call it that. It might be the fans only runs at minimum 3000rpm by design, or MSI just limits things to a minimum 3000rpm. Yeah, I would've preferred a wide range of speed options for the fan, too.

We can bring this up to MSI support, and with the many people complaining about it, maybe they'd do something about it.

1- Put everything on 150% on CPU and GPU: 7000rpm on CPU and 0 on GPU (because we are not using GPU yet)
2- Start a CPU and GPU demanding app (mine is Overwatch)
3- Game opens, CPU fan goes to 5000rpm and GPU fan goes to 7000rpm (WHY CPU FAN SLOWS DOWN?)
4- After 75C, GPU fan goes to 5000rpm - both fans stays on 5000rpm forever and heat increases a lot.

What is going on here? What is taking control of fans???

Probably a hardware-level forcing of fans that is applied when it reaches beyond the hottest temperature Silent Option has customizable, or something like that. It happens with Silent Option on my GE62 2QD, too.

The CPU fan slowing down from 7000rpm to 5000rpm is likely due to the CPU hitting the "hottest temperature that SIlent Option doesn't let customize" first before the GPU does.

You're better off turning on the fan boost button at this point to max it out at 6000rpm. Not 7000rpm, sadly, but at least much better than 5000rpm (4800rpm in my case).

Hey guys, my problem is when I set it to -20%, it will work fine and stable at 2900 RPM, but after about 5 min it starts to go up and down immediately from around 3500 to 2600, and become so annoying from quite to loud, quite to loud that I have to turn it off.

mine is GP60 2PE Leopard, Win 10

I have a GL62 6QF with i5 6300HQ, I'm wondering if my laptop can run the fan control properly.
To have the fan running at 3400 rpm at 25-35 degree celsius and all I do is just web browsing is really annoying.

It works perfectly.
My fan doesn't seem run at its max speed when i put it on 100%. When i put it on 50%, it goes up to ~3000rpm. But when i put it on 100% or above, it only goes up to ~5000rpm. I also only get ~5000rpm with turbo fan button on.
Is there any way to unlock the limit and go beyond 5000rpm?

Hi
It seems the program just works in 3 options. Fan speed of 0%, 50% and >50%. Can you please make it work <50%. I adjusted the fan speed to 0% for the lowest 3 temperature categories and I am concerned whether this change causes any problems to the cpu. I would like to make the fan work around 1000-1500 rpm for the lowest 3 temperature categories. And can anyone who tested the program tell me whether my adjustment will cause any problems or not? With this setting, finally I can easily read journals in pdf without getting headaches. If this fan problem still keeps on going like this in msi notebooks, I am pretty sure that my next laptop wont be an msi.

Thank you very much.

Hey guys, 
I got a msi gs60 2PE ghost pro.
I installed the Silent option and also the dragon center on windows 10 home 64bit and with both tools I can't go under 2700rpm.
Once I go under 2700rpm It cycles from 0 to 3600rpm over and over.
Can anybody help?

Let me remind you guys about fan control:
- Some fans only start to spin on 3000 RPM. For this kind of fans, there's no way to spin below 3000 RPM. The required voltage for them only kicks them on minimum 3000 RPM.
- Dragon Center only works on Vortex or Skylake models. For Haswell/Broadwell models, just use Dragon Gaming Center along with Silent Option.

Where do you find older firmware versions? Is there any tutorial how to update firmware?

I am using the GP62 6QF and the left fan is always on at 3200RPM or more.

Post by: raseru15 on 15-December-16, 12:12:05
Had no problems getting this working on my GP72 6QF until today when I was idling at 45-55C. Noticed I was in Sports Mode in Dragon Gaming Center. Switched over to Green Mode for a bit, dropped down to 30C. Fan still wouldn't stop, was running at 2800 RPM until I moved the first slider up to 100% and it went to 4800 RPM and wouldn't come back down.

Well, I finally got it to turn off the fan after some fiddling. Now the CPU is back up at 42C and fan doesn't seem to want to start back up.

Anyway here's what I did, don't know if it will work for others with same issues.

1. Set sliders to 0% for CPU fan (might only need to do first one, I happened to do all of them)
2. Exit Silent Option
3. Open Silent Option

The default button in the advanced screen should now set to what your settings were when you exited.

4. Set sliders to 100%
5. Hit default

EDIT: Tried setting the higher temperature sliders to proper positions and restarting the application, don't seem to be able to repeat it now.
EDIT2: And now toggling turbo fans on and off while just the first slider was at 0% got the fan to stop.

Details: GE72-6QD

I can confirm what someone else mentioned about fans sticking to 3000RPM's~ (more like 3100-3300RPM area for me personally)

If I use the advanced options and set it to 0%, the fan stops, if i set it to ANYTHING in the range of 1% to 53-54%, it sits at the above mentioned RPM's, so, at least until they fix the EC-Firmware totally useless for "fine grain" control...

If I set it to 100% it spins up to 5925RPM's, there is no change if i set it anywhere above the 100% up to 150% (really? this is a thing... also unless it cant report higher and is actually spinning at 6000RPM's or higher, which I dont think it is as noise would would increase as well, this is a non-functional area)

So your actual "changeable" range is from 55%~ to 100%, anything from 1% to 54% and 101% to 150% does NADA!
Ether the software needs an update, or, im going to agree with the previous poster, downgrade the firmware for now, or hope MSI fix's the EC-Firmware and provides us with an upgrade!


REQUEST: and this applies to the Dragon Gaming Center as well, please for the love of god, let me set it to F for temperature (not an option in "Silent Option") and make it STICK (does not stick in Dragon Gaming Center, changes back to C upon restart).
I like the MORE PRECISE measurement's for my temperatures, I like my precision so much that I would even request Kelvin be added as well if that was possible...

Same on GS72-6QE.

Really want one or two more slider in "cool" zone.
Also, most part of time I work in "office/balanced" mode and if I set first (left) slider to 0 and second to 50%(for example), cooler starts to work nearly every 5 min. ON/OFF every 5-10 mins it is just annoys me. I think it is possible to find some kind of balanced settings, when cooler most time is working, but in very low RPM (think 500 should be enough). So the noise would be not high and there would be now tick-tack on\off all time. 

Thanks a lot!

I have the same laptop and the fan profile seems to be working for me except the GPU is detected as 0 degrees so the GPU fan doesn't turn on.

Weirdly if I change the performance shift mode, the gpu temp is detected for a second before switching back to 0 degrees.

This works easily on the GS60 2QE (4K), i was seriously already trying to sell the laptop.
I was unable to use the laptop at libraries, now everything is as quite as it should be when surfing and using word. 
With some simple settings on the change advance energy settings in windows power settings, my on-battery-life also improved dramatically.

I put fans to 0 unless the cpu/gpu reaches 60°C so this is quiet ALL the time.

Great, great app!
Some go for svets-tuner but for fan-noise this program is just perfect!  ;)

Hey guys,
I installed your software on my GE 72 6QF with Windows 10 and all Drivers up-to-date (Skylake), because for obvious reasons. Good idea, simple program, but I am unable to adjust the CPU fan speed by using the "Basic"-option or "Advanced". I can just decide between turn the fan off (0%) or having it on 3333 rpm (1-60%). I thought with this little program I'd be able to adjust the fan up to around 1500 rpm, so it's not off but turning way slower than before. It's installed as advised, hope for help!

Hi t.eismann.au,
 

No, it can’t. The fan needs minimum voltage for starting. Therefore, you will 3xxx rpm when fan starts running.

Hi all ! 

I bought Svets Tuner as soon as I got my GS60 because the fan problem was just too much and I only see now that there is an MSI tool for this ! Is it efficient ? Can I use it in combination with the Svets Tuner installed ? 

I don't know why but the fan is now on at low speed even when the computer is idle and I wonder is maybe it's because of the dust settling after a year of use...
