    If you don't have a 'cool boost' option in Acer quick access application, there is no way you can manually control the fan speed.
    Always post the following characterisitcs of the device:
    -Model number
    -Part number(not required, but helpful)
    -CPU
    -GPU
    -Operating system

    Helios 300 and Nitro 5 users DO NOT update the BIOS to version 1.22 if you don't want the keyboard's backlight to turn off after 30 seconds even when the device is plugged in.

    What about battery? And am what is this quick acer app ?

    If the display was on maximum brightness when you tested it, then the battery runtime is reasonably good.

    Can you post you device's full model?

    Found a review of your device. You can find the battery tests at 'power management' section. If your battery runtime is similar, then you don't have to worry. You can download Acer quick application here. You can find it under the 'application' tab.

    Actually only on wifi without load is less then all results showed around 3 hours.But ive been told the battery needs few cycles, load and disload by windows browsing and gaming and e.t.c to start working properly .In the Acer manual has been written this procedure 3 times and it hadded effect but still i think it can handle 1-2 more hours since its brand new.

    Yes, I am using NoteBook FanControl on the A715-42G whenever the pathetic SSD overheats because Windows is installing an update. The fan curve needs to be set in an XML file, and not in a user interface. You can copy the contents below into an XML file named "Acer Aspire A715-42G" in the Configs folder.

    I wish I had an HDD. Those are superior.
    Note: These temperatures are CPU temperatures, not SSD temperatures. I modified those as well with this config file, but the main reason for downloading the program was the SSD, which needs to be manually controlled.
