Default Re: CPU fan question

It doesn't need to go full speed, but I don't recommend using a fan controller. My Intel Fan was spinning too low for it...thus, requiring to change it.

Yes, if you use ITE Smartguardian you can change when it shuts off, starts again, full speed, etc..

ibm's are bad for that, they only run the fans when it is necessary to keep the computer running optimaly, kinda like a laptop.

as long as your cpu fan turns on when it needs to then i guess you dont really have to be too worried, just monitor your temps.

That's it. And I don't recommend a CPU fan controller. My CPU fan was running too slow afterwards...and the CPU jumped well over 100C

Default Re: CPU fan question

aahh i see now... the way i have it set up now is the cpu fan is connected to another fan connecter on the mobo and the setting for that fan connecter goes by likke mobo temp or something so i just set it to max turn on at like 25 and since the mobo temp is constantly at 30 the cpu fan alwats stays on full blast. should i leave it like this then?
