Intel® Quiet System Technology Service

The Intel® Quiet System Technology service supports the monitoring of computer operating temperatures to reduce perceived noise by minimizing fan speed changes. Intel® Quiet System Technology algorithms are time-based and enhance both thermal control and noise reduction by directing how cooling fans regulate computer operating temperatures.

Intel Quiet System Technology features are only available for Intel® vPro™-enabled devices and only through agents and not probes.

Use the Intel® Quiet System Technology service to monitor sub-components such as fans, fan controllers, voltage regulators and temperature sensors.

Accessing Quiet System Technology sub-systems requires the installation of the Intel Management Engine Interface (MEI) which does not support Windows 2003 Server.
