How to control the fan on a AMD card with Mesa?
WJMazepas commented on 17 November 2017 at 3:42 am UTC

Hello everyone!

I have a PC with Ubuntu Gnome 16.04, a RX 470 and the latest mesa drivers.
How do i control the fan? I searched for a way online, and it was confusing and it seems it didnt work. My gpu is heating up a lot.

Is there a easy way? Like a Evga Precision/Afterburner way to control the fans?

Thank you everyone

I'm an Arch linux user with a Radeon RX480 card. To control my fan I'm using something called radeon-profile:
https://github.com/marazmista/radeon-profile

Apparently somebody has made a repository with it on Ubuntu, though I haven't tested it myself being an Arch user:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:trebelnik-stefina/radeon-profile
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install radeon-profile
(from http://www.apolitech.com/2017/04/how-to-install-radeon-profile-on-ubuntu.html)

If that doesn't work, there are build instructions on the webpage to compile it yourself. Good luck!
