Few months back I did a rpi 4 project and it ran really hot, so I ended up setting this cooling system https://www.electromaker.io/project/view/raspberry-pi-4-gpio-controlled-cooling-fanYesterday while browsing one of the FB pages, I noted an answer on the same subject that noted the rpi-config has a built in option for this.I went to explore and found out that a new feature was added on December 2020 with this option.Follow the video to know how to activate it.
