Thanks for the info about the fans Tim, Zoran, and Taiidan.

I haven't tried to use fancontrol yet, so I'm confident that will be the solution to my fan issue.

I got it. Raptor's OpenBMC port for the KGPE-D16/KCMA-D8 boards module should/must be included in Debian distro
as driver addendum. In this case it is not.

Thank you,
Zotran

Note that the 'w83795' kernel module is required for this to work.
Correct me if I am wrong, but how I understood the topic/problem, the fans
continue to blow full speed indefinitely even after OS boots, don't they?
Naah as tim said you just have to run fancontrol or use Raptor's OpenBMC port for the KGPE-D16/KCMA-D8 boards.

Additionally I added this info to the wiki many months ago, as I too was bothered by the fan speed when I first installed coreboot years ago and assumed something was broken to which tim explained it for me too :D
