Biostar TP67XE Speed fan

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I'm sorry if this is in the wrong place, but I'm not sure who else to ask. I just bought a new computer, and I'm very happy about it. But there's one rather loud problem. I can't control the case fan speeds! I'm currently using a case fan (3 pins) to cool my graphics card (I didn't buy a new one yet)and I have it plugged into the mobo fan header. Speed fan sees the fan spinning at 4.5k RPM, but it can't throttle the speeds at all. I've tried going into Configure/Advanced and the case fans are already "Software Controlled" and I just updated my BIOS to the latest version. Does anyone here have the same problem? Maybe there's a better fan controlling software out there?

Thanks!
W.O.P.R.

What I'm trying to figure out is why you have a I5 2500K with Gskill 4GB 1600 which is all current tech, and it's paired up with a 160gb hdd and a 8600gt?

I noticed you're using an 8600GT. Have you tried using EVGA Precision?
http://www.evga.com/precision/

The utility works on all nvidia-based graphics cards, so you should be able to control the fan settings once it's installed. If you can't, then something is wrong with your fan reading.

Caveat: you may have to create an EVGA account to get the download link from EVGA, but you might be able to google around and find a different download link without creating an account

Hahaha, the 8600GT and HDD are from my old computer. I'm gonna upgrade next payday...hopefully. All my new components only cost me 435 bucks, including the case, power supply, and a new DVD burner

Unfortunately the stock fan on the GT8600 died. I now have a case fan zip-tied to the heat sink, thus where the problem comes in. On my old mobo, speed fan worked just fine. I could turn the fan down when at idle or during non graphics intensive tasks, then ramp it up during games. But now that speed fan doesn't work, it's stuck at 100%.

OH, that's what you meant by having a case fan zip-tied, I thought you just had a second fan attached to your 8600GT to complement the existing one.

Hmm.. you could purchase a fan controller that installs in your floppy or CD/DVD bay
