What is AMDFAN

My fork of an abandoned amdgpu_fan project.

A utility to control or monitor the fan speeds of GPUs in Linux that use the amdgpu driver.

With security fixes, improvements and features that I couldn’t find in any of the alternatives.


  • monitor the fan speeds
  • monitor GPU temperatures
  • allow manual fan speed
  • adjustable frequency
  • adjustable temperature threshold
  • security fixes
  • broken functionality addressed, now able to set system controlled fans
  • additional tests and linting


I’ll try to keep the updated on Github for the documentation. Let me know there if you want any features, or feel free to contribute to the project as well.
