Thinkpad T480 Minimum fan speed

Am I to understand that the T480 has a minimum fan speed of 2600-2800 RPMs? 


There is no 800 - 1000 RPMs available at all? Why would the lowest fan speed be audible? This makes no sense to me.

Re: Thinkpad T480 Minimum fan speed

Yeah this is frustrating and really doesn't make any sense.
The Fan on my T480 switches from zero to about 3k rpm all the time. And yes, you can hear it very well and the cpu is getting throttled before it's getting cooled.
I don't get it why the lowest fan speed is not something like 500rpm that could run all the time.

Re: Thinkpad T480 Minimum fan speed

Maybe there is a program which can configure min fan speed or configure fan speed for different cpu temperature?
