Good case you have. smile.gif

I'm at work right now but via VNC i ran a 5 min furmark stress.

With a custom fan profile GPU stabilize at 67 and vrm around 50 (i don't remember exactly).

I hope to be able to setup my new haf xm case on sunday.

Adding 2 140mm fans in the side panel and removing the 2 HDDs cages to let the front 200m fan to refresh GPU must be enough to keep temps controlled.

I hope. rolleyes.gif


Spring and summer in south Spain is very hot.

I ran a second 5 min furmark GPU at 67-68 and vrm at 60 (following msi fan utility).

The fan profile on AB only control side fans, central fan is only up to 38% in this test what seems to me to be very low.

Now with AB fan profile the scales well but default fan profile was not good for me.

Maybe the new case solves this problem, i don't like to use a fan profile who only controls 2 of 3 fans.

I assumed you were talking about your central (yellow) GPU fan if that's at 38% under full load I would expect the outside (Black) fans to try compensate it,I have seen my Lightning do that and my outside (Black) fans spun up to over 85% as well I quickly set MSI fan control to 75% for central (yellow) fan all the time and set outside (black)fans to profile in AB and then my max temp was around 70c.


Your case has more than enough air from the 2 140mm side fans it must be because your central fan is not spinning up enough I can't remember what speed mine went to but I thought it was higher than 38% at stock like I said though mine did same thing unless I set central fan manually at 75%

Yes, central fan stay at 38% and don't scale with temp if i use an AB profile to manage side fans.

Fixing this fan at 75% via MSI fan control should fix the need of 80-100% in side fans to compensate but the noise coming from the litlle (and louder) fan should be annoying.

Ideal solution could be a new AB version who can handle the three fans. biggrin.gif

I agree about the noise from that little yellow fan if you drop it to about 71% or 72% i found it made less cavitation noise and after a while of gaming the outside two ended up matching it in noise so I could just hear the little one over the outside ones.

Honestly, i have similar weird issue, with cinebench r15. I get the same score no matter what video card i use (580, 760, 780ti or 290x). If i overclock any one of them, i get lower scores.

And i don't know. i checked all of possible , i'm not a rookie) Any suggestions ?
