Does anyone know of some kind of software that can control the fan of the NC10, much like the eeectl for the EEEPC’s? There is a similar program for the Acer Aspire One (I’ve tried them both but no they do not work on the NC10 and I really didn’t think they would, but I had to try 🙂 )
I’m looking for a program that can change the settings for when the fan should turn on or disable it completely.December 15, 2008 at 1:19 pm #175817ZipMember
nothing that I know of, are you having issues with yours? I can honestly say I haven’t heard mine yet! (could mean I have a problem with mine though…)December 15, 2008 at 5:25 pm #175807December 16, 2008 at 12:01 am #175813UggyMember
I was just looking through the MagicKBD program directory to see if there any clues as to why the key customizing doesnt work (but run keyset.exe and it says sabi.dll missing – strange as sabi2.dll is used
I found dmbmodule.ini which includes
which is also strange as I couldnt find itDecember 16, 2008 at 12:51 am #175815PanManMember

Me too. Was kind of hoping for an ear hair trim too…….December 16, 2008 at 11:42 am #175818wildfleaMember
Trying to choose netbook to buy and came across this forum. One of my main considerations is quietness. Have read Asus Eee’s have noisy fans. Someone on EEE forum wrote they got a Samsung NC-10 and the fan isn’t on all the time like it is with the Eee – is that true? How often do you think your fan is on?December 16, 2008 at 10:36 pm #175809TheoMember
The fan is on rarely and even when it runs is very quite, as previously said. You really need it to be quite or hold next to your ear to hear.December 17, 2008 at 12:23 am #175810AlfiharParticipant
In normal mode I find the fan to be on most of the time though it’s generally not noticeable unless I’m in a quiet room. In quiet mode I find the fan is off most of the time.
Though if you are looking for a really quiet netbook, maybe you should take a look at the Dell Mini 9 which has no moving parts.December 17, 2008 at 1:28 pm #175819wildfleaMember
Thanks for replying. Asus 1000H seems to have reputation for noise. Dell Mini 9 looks good but SSD not large enough for all my files. Will probably get NC-10.December 17, 2008 at 10:18 pm #175804SerendipMember
The fan is rarely running on my NC10, and even when it is, it is of short duration and is very quiet.December 18, 2008 at 5:32 pm #175805
I have now disconnected my fan. Not because of the noise but because of the power drain, The operating temperature of the CPU is up to 60 degress and playing movies it just reaches 50 degress. See how long I dare to keep this up though 😉December 18, 2008 at 8:55 pm #175816saureyMember
Can people please state their OS when posting in this thread? That way, we can eliminate Vista’s resource hogging as a cause. I use XP and mine is quiet as a charm unless I am doing like 50 things on the comp at once.

@saurey: Good idea! Some relevant info posted in my sign.
Fan still disconnected: No problem so far.December 18, 2008 at 10:35 pm #175814zwiebugMember
running vista sp1, tweaked for performance (disabling various services that run in the background and use the hdd, indexing, shadow copy, ntfs compression and so on).
fan comes up but the tweaking helped!
not only should everyone tell the os he runs, but also the bios version, as the latest bios is said to make the fan come up more often.
