Best quick/easy way to control case fan speed? - idillicah - 09-19-2020

Hello!

I have this case: https://kksb-cases.com/products/kksb-rock64-case-steel?_pos=1&_sid=1f3178bfc&_ss=r

It includes a little fan (which is quite noisy, haha), and it works fine just by using the pins on the board.

But it goes at full blast all the time. I was wondering if you guys could help me figure out a way to have a voltage control setup tied to CPU temp?

I remember seeing something for the RPi with Python, but I can't seem to find it.

any help is appreciated.

I've not tried these yet because I can't get my fan to respond at all (which GPIO pins did you use?) but they seem well-worth a look.
