Fans kick in AFTER the laptop heats up, not WHEN the laptop heats up!
My laptop would go into to this locked-in cycle when it would heat up, start throttling itself and not being unable to finish certain tasks (due to throttling). It could stay in this state for as long as it wants without ever coming out of it. This model is known to not cool itself enough, so I installed Macs Fan Control which I used on many other models thinking this would help.
Setting the fan to kick in starting at 38 on CPU Core 1 , finishing at 90 degrees celsius it really was not all that much helpful, because from what I could gather the fans would receive news about the built-up heat only AFTER it has already built up, instead of WHEN it’s building up. It’s as though the SMC controller is a low priority process and really gets a chance to do something only after all user and system invoked processes have calmed down, but if they are eating up the CPU and causing it to heat, good luck awaiting for that fan to kick in. It’s not going to do that, causing heat to build up, the CPU to throttle, unable the tasks and not giving any priority for the SMC to start the fans.
Is it only me or has anyone else noticed this on this model / any other models?
Is dit een goede vraag?
