If you have the stock CPU fan, then running a fan at 70% of RPM or above will be the recommended CPU fan speed range. For gamers when their CPU temperature reaches 70C, setting RPM at 100% is the ideal CPU fan speed. At 50C to 55C the normal CPU fan speed should be around 50% of total RPM
Read the top post again. Their issue sounds more like an aging fan.
This area is one where 90% plus of users just need it to work without installing more software. Out of about the hundred laptops I’ve seen in the past month, not one reported fan speed in any menu or app that came with the laptop.
A few laptops did allow some adjust to set the fan to “always on” so to not jar the user from low/off speed to a cooling speed but that was it.
