Title: FAN CONTROL
Abstract:
Examples of the present techniques relate generally to control of one or more fans in a computing device, and to reducing or avoiding throughput degradation of a hard disk drive (HDD) of the computing device caused by vibration of the fan. Examples give a system and method of controlling the fan in the computing device, including determining data-rate throughput of a hard drive in the computing device, and reducing a rotational speed of the fan in the computing device in response to a reduction in the data-rate throughput of the hard drive.
