I'm looking for the fan/led control software for the FX-8150. I feel like I've looked everywhere and can't find it. Anyone have a link?

There is no OE fan/LED software for the FX-8150.

There is fan software like Speedfan that can control the fan speed. Many BIOS on newer mobos allow you to adjust the fan speed but there isn't any AMD software to control the CPU fan speed or LEDs that are on some aftermarket HSFs.

There are options in the BIOS for fan profiles, use them. Make sure the CPU fan is connected to the proper motherboard header.

If the CPU is too hot, try upgrading the thermal interface material.

Test have shown the OE AMD thermal interface material is just fine. It performs similar to any of the top ~25 TIMs which all are within 2 degrees C.
