I have a rack-type server whose motherboard is ASUS Z11PG-D16 Series (according to lshw).

ipmitool reports 7 front fans, and I would like to increase their speeds.

Is there any way to do that?

Thank you.

    Heat up the server by doing some work with it? – Michael Hampton Aug 20 '19 at 3:41
  • @MichaelHampton I hope you are joking.. I want to increase the fan speeds because the fans don't cool the GPUs enough even when they are overheated. – noname Aug 20 '19 at 4:10
  • Exactly what is this server comprised of, then? – Michael Hampton Aug 20 '19 at 4:17
  • If your hardware does support software control the following provides some instructions askubuntu.com/q/22108/797924 – HBruijn Aug 20 '19 at 5:55
  • It turned out that this model has fan control on its IPMI GUI. But thanks for your comments. – noname Aug 21 '19 at 23:32
