Nvida fan control of 2nd card
#1
I've just installed ubuntu (14.04) and set up hashcat, now cracking benchmarks at close to double the speed on Win 10 for NetNTLM. So result there. But I cannot seem to find a way to control the fan speed of my second GPU (got device0 fan control working fine).

I  assume this is because it has no monitor attached - what's the best approach to solving this problem now? I recall putting dummy devices on was an approach at some point but hopefully there is an easier way now?

It is not to use headless this box, it will be used a linux workstation as well as occasional password cracking duties.

You need to generate a proper xorg.conf to fake having a monitor attached.
