    Is there a way to control the fan on this machine?

    I want it to run at full speed when I'm playing a game. As it is now, the fan changes it's speed according to the CPU temperature. It seems to only run at full speed at about 90C.

    I'm aware of the BIOS option, it is enabled by default, but still some other software is controlling the fan speed when you get to Windows.

    95C after playing a few minutes of WoW doesn't look good to me.

    My 2710p, on a hot streak, will run at only 43 degrees!

    On average it only runs at 27 degrees!!!!!!

    Send in for replacement. That is like almost enough to place a kettle on the underside of your tablet and have it boil!

    95c is about what I get as well. Many people that have the tx25xx have reported similar temperatures when doing 3d gaming or video encoding. It's a hot little machine, I'll give it that.
    I'm sure that HP is aware of how hot this model gets and would probably say that it's operating in expected parameters. If you do call them and hear differently, please let me know! I'd hate to have to send it in for repair, since everything else on this computer is perfect. But I'd also like it to last longer than a year. ;)
