Tool to Control Fan - fanctl
#1
Hello guyes,
Since early, I realized that Rockpro64 needs active cooling if you push it up,
And so I ordered a heatsink and a Fan for it..

In the meantime, I created a tool to control Temperatures.
Is is now Running for more than a month, with full CPU usage, 24x7 and temps are good(  ~58Celcius).
This Board is Very stable.. Smile

If someone want the tool:

Which distro are you running (Ubuntu, Debian, OMV, -32 or -64 architecture)? 
I am on Ubuntu-64 minimal and looked around with lm-sensors, only to find nobody home. No hwmon! What software did you run to get temperature monitoring going?

Thanks for hanging out here and answering questions.

Hello,
I am using the Minimal Version Release of Debian Strech by  ayufan

But with older release I was at same stage as you..
You need to Follow  ayufan instructions on Github.

Resuming, you need to upgrade your kernel and maybe some stuff.
Reboot,
Then you will be able to get exported to sysfs the hwmon and thermal zones.

I am using the tool I made - fanctl Smile

if I want the average temperature to be +40C ?
ie. so that starting from +35C the PWM duty cycle was 30%, at +40C already 50%, and with +45C and above, then 100%
at the same time without reducing the clock frequency of and turning off the microcontroller or if > +70C?

Very nice script! Thank you!

Quick question, does the rockpro64 really need to shutdown when Temp >= 70?

Is that temperature bad for the Rockchip?

See this link I see much higher temps during testing?

p.s. and is 45 already to high for idling?
