One of the fans, in under 8-months of use, is already basically kaput, and since it is virtually impossible to dismantle the G75VW to get at the fan itself (to lube *or* replace) I am at my wit's end. Could *someone* please point me in the direction of some fan control app that will allow me to, if nothing else, *slow down* the offending fan?? It is *amazingly* loud. SpeedFan does not work, as it can't pick up the existence of the fans. I cannot find anyway to actually launch the FanXpert app which appears, in some fashion, to be on this computer.

HELP.

Thanks :)

(Yes, I know: send it in for repair, however, I *need* the computer and can't be w/o it for 2-4 weeks while ASUS decides to fix something that SHOULD NOT BE BROKEN this early in its life.)

(Yes, I know: I don't want to turn down my fan speeds due to heat blahblahblah but, yes, I do. Now. It's driving me nuts.)

(Also: Thanks for nothing, ASUS. This will be the *last* time I purchase one of your products.)

(Also 2: Please, no lectures on my venting. Thank you.)

Well you seem to have answered you questions yourself. There is no software that will allow you to adjust fan speeds that is controlled by your CPU/GPU Temps! if your fans are running full speed all the time you must be having a temp problem? If you have a bad Fan you will need to replace it. Send for Repair? take to a repair station near you? discard your Warranty and replace the defective fan yourself search eBay for the part!
Here is a link that will show you how to get to the fan and more should you be having temp problems you'll need to repaste. G75 Disassembly (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z9KHrJKInmA)

As far as your vent goes your problem is not a common problem, **** happen you just have to deal with it. So sort it out and solve it, many here will help you anyway we can.

Thank you, even if you still felt the undying internet need to lecture someone who *fully* understands the problem, as noted in the OP.
