    What profiles to use for CPU radiator fans ?

    Before thinking of overclocking I would like to know:

    What profile should the CPU fans be set to? (3x120mm fans on radiator connected to CPU header).

    Best to set this up in bios? At the moment it ramps up and down every few minutes which I find annoying, would prefer more delayed increase.


    What are your settings?

    Thanks



    For info waterloop is as follows:
    XSPC 360 radiator > XSPC reservoir > Laing 18W pump > EKWB gpu full cover > vram > EKWB cpu > back to radiator

    Try increasing "fan ramp up/down" setting in Q-fan control.
    This might help against ramping.

    For CPU fan I use 30sec, and for the case fan - the biggest value possible, to have the slowest ramping as possible.


    Apart from this (my 7700k has heat spikes, as many of them do) I have set the fan graph to star to increase the rpms only from 55c (cpu temp).

    Thanks Link!

    I can't believe I missed that setting, I was looking in the "quick" settings rather than the "monitor" tab. I'll have a mess about with the settings to get rid of that annoying noise

    Would be good if there was a detailed manual on BIOS settings somewhere..

    Yes I get random spikes of temperature on a single core sometimes (not the same core), but very good temps overall and under stress test.

    Cheers

    Bind the pwm curve of radiators fans with loop temperature sensor,so you wont get that awful ramping up and down sound of fans.

    Even a better way to deal with the problem.

    Plz give a feedback if "fan step up" helps.

    Hi Marko911, great idea, but....foolishly I don't have a loop temperature sensor fitted (I'm guessing there's not on in the VRM heatsink on Forumula X).

    Here is an option to connect it to the 2pin header on the motherboard http://www.xs-pc.com/temperature-sen...r-black-chrome

    What do you think?

    It could be fitted to one of the GPU waterblock plug holes

    Hey Link yes it seems a good solution, your method of adjusting the ramp up/down times has worked a treat for now - thank you!
