Case fan profiles possible?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
My case is an Antec 1200

There are switches in the back for the 200mm and 120mm exhaust fans, and 3 knobs in the front for 120mm intake fans. I also have a rosewill side intake fan installed plugged into my mobo.

My question is, is there some software I can download that I can create 2 profiles with
1) Low-Speed profile, fans ~20%
2) Gaming, fans @ 60-80%

I just don't want my room to sound like it has a jet taking off constantly in it when I'm not gaming. I have downloaded speedfan because i've heard it can do this, but I became extremely confused upon attempting this. Any guidance is appreciated.
Thanks

My Asus board came with a program called ASUS AI Suite. Inside that it has a fan a program called Fan Xpert. I use that to control my fans. Not sure if you can use it on your MOBO.

I also just downloaded Speedfan about a week ago. I was trying to use it on my HTPC so my Ultra Kaze 3k wont drive me crazy, but it wouldnt work on it. I guess that MOBO doesnt have voltage regulation.

Open speed fan, and about 2/3 way down you should see some fields with 100% in them(they say speed01, speed02, ect). You should be able to use them to Manually change their speeds. And if you click on the configuration button, somewhere in there you can make fan profiles.

Why You Don´t Get these fans with Speed Controller?

Well I already have fans, and they are built in to the case. They are also already adjustable. It's just annoying to go tick a bunch of switches and turn knobs every time I close or open a game.

I will try Asus AI suite when I get home

If your MOBO has a PWM function. I would use it to control all your fans, or at least the important ones. It would cost more as you would have to buy new fans, and maybe even a PWM splitter. But it would save you tons of hassle changing your fan speed to your liking.

With PWM, the fans are controlled by the CPU temperature, completely automatic. So if your system is idling at say 40-50C then your fans are only running at 40%. But if your rig is running hot at say 60-70C, then they will run at a higher speed(whatever you set them to, mine are at about 90% at 70C).

That way you will always have a quiet rig, unless it needs the additional cooling power, then it will speed up as it is needed.

But thats just me. I love my 5 PWM fans running from 700RPM to 2000RPM, depending on temperature. PWM FTW

Are you running off 3/4 pin on the motherboard? If you are, and HWM supports changing fan speed (percentage based) manually, you could just write an external script (autoit or something) to change the fan speed based on temperature readings.

For example, I use an autoit script to control my graphics cards (controlled through drivers, don't feel like using Afterburner just for that) and NB fan speed (controlled with HWM) based on temperature.

I guess you could also create an application list, and if it detects an application that's in the list running, change fan speed.
