hi mpeko,


Controlling the fan speed is a BIOS feature. Some have luck using SpeedFan to access this setting but if that doesn't work, this feature might not be enabled or available for your model.


As for the overheating issue, this is commonly caused by dried out thermal compound or dirty fan / ventilation. Depending on how long you have had your computer, it's strongly recommended to have it cleaned once a year to prevent any dust build up inside of the PC. It's recommend that after cleaning the fan, clean out the ventilation and replace the thermal compound on the CPU and GPU (if applicable). You can use Artic Silver 5 or Tuniq TX-4.


Check this guide on how to properly apply a thermal compound.




Hope this helps.
