Heat dispersal
To protect from overheating, the CPU has an internal temperature sensor. If
the computer’s internal temperature rises to a certain level, the cooling fan

control the CPU temperature by turning on the fan first, then if necessary,
lowering the CPU speed. Or, by lowering the CPU speed first, then if
necessary, turning on the fan. These functions are controlled within the

When the CPU temperature falls to a normal range, the fan is turned off

setting, the system automatically shuts down to prevent damage. Data in
memory will be lost.
