  • Works in Win10 for my T430. Let's you choose how you want to operate fan: 1) manually, 2) using T430 BIOS, or 3) using this tpfancontrol software.

  • Would nice to add new models not working for Lenovo Y520 and false temp detection -112C.

  • tpfancontrol works with windows 10

  • tp4xfancontrol - must have.
