NAME

       pwmconfig - tests the PWM outputs of sensors and configures fancontrol



SYNOPSIS

       pwmconfig



DESCRIPTION

       pwmconfig  searches  your sensors for pulse width modulation (PWM) con-
       trols, and test each one to see if it controls a fan  on  your  mother-
       board. Note that many motherboards do not have PWM circuitry installed,
       even if your sensor chip supports PWM.

       It attempts to briefly stop each fan using the PWM  controls.  It  then
       attempts  to  restore each fan to full speed after testing. However, it
       is very important that you physically verify that the  fans  have  been
       returned to full speed after the program has completed.



WARNING

       This  program  will  stop your fans, one at a time, for approximately 5
       seconds each.  This may cause your processor temperature to rise.  Ver-
       ify  that  all  fans are running at normal speed after this program has
       exited.
