NAME

       pwmconfig - tests the PWM outputs of sensors and configures fancontrol

SYNOPSIS

       pwmconfig

DESCRIPTION

       pwmconfig  searches  your  sensors  for  pulse  width  modulation (PWM)
       controls, and test each one to  see  if  it  controls  a  fan  on  your
       motherboard.  Note  that  many  motherboards  do not have PWM circuitry
       installed, even if your sensor chip supports PWM.

       It attempts to briefly stop each fan using the PWM  controls.  It  then
       attempts  to  restore each fan to full speed after testing. However, it
       is very important that you physically verify that the  fans  have  been
       returned to full speed after the program has completed.

WARNING

       This  program  will  stop your fans, one at a time, for approximately 5
       seconds each.  This may  cause  your  processor  temperature  to  rise.
       Verify that all fans are running at normal speed after this program has
       exited.
