No, this new $7 fan didn't make my PC silent.

#hardware #silent #pc  

First, it's the wrong size. I measured 120mm diagonally, like TV and monitor sizes, but fan sizes are evidently measured along the edge.

But I managed to stick it in my case anyway. It seemed a little quieter than the old fan, but the PC is still noisy.

This machine has a spinning disk as well as an SSD; I tried playing with hdparm -S to spin it down but couldn't hear any difference at all. Maybe some process is preventing the disk from spinning down? I couldn't tell from lsof output.

Maybe it's the power supply. Some searching landed me at Silent PC Review, where I discovered SpeedFan. I'm clearly not the first to wonder if there's a linux work-alike. I tried lm-sensors and fancontrol but I can't seem to get past "There are no pwm-capable sensor modules installed".

This is what sensors-detect told me:

Now follows a summary of the probes I have just done.
Just press ENTER to continue: 

Driver `to-be-written':
  * ISA bus, address 0x228
    Chip `ITE IT8728F Super IO Sensors' (confidence: 9)

Driver `fam15h_power' (autoloaded):
  * Chip `AMD Family 15h power sensors' (confidence: 9)

Driver `k10temp' (autoloaded):
  * Chip `AMD Family 15h thermal sensors' (confidence: 9)

Note: there is no driver for ITE IT8728F Super IO Sensors yet.
Check http://www.lm-sensors.org/wiki/Devices for updates.


p.s. how do I get boldface in G+? And how about a normal hyperlink?

Is there a Mechanize work-alike for #JavaScript? I'm thinking about migrating some python code to javascript.

idea for https://github.com/dckc/finquick : use bank/credit card web sites as the UI. Supplement with bookmarklets etc. that integrate my gnucash DB

The #finquick bookmarklet idea wouldn't work so well from a phone. Maybe a google docs form that feeds a spreadsheet: match by amount and text substring.
