ASRock 970 Extreme 3 Fan Control

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi Guys,

I just bought a 970 Extreme 3 with my new rig and I want some opinions on how well the PWM control in the UEFI works. Has anyone had problems with it and switched to a fan controller? What are your fan setups with this mobo?

I have recently bought asrock 970 extreme3 and having been facing problems with CPU fan.
The cpu fan is constantly running at full speed.
What to do in order to make the fan control its speed according to cpu frequency ( PWM, Cool n quiet, whatsoever)

Thanks.

The fan control works, but it's a bit hard to understand, if you are unfamiliar with Asrock motherboards. If you set: Fan target speed: 5 Target temperature 45, this means, that the fan will run at a low speed (speed varies from fan to fan) and if temperature rises over 45C, then the fan will accelerate to full speed.

It's a basically 2 speed setup. 1 low speed and if temperature exceeds the temperature you set, then you get full speed (whatever that of your fan is).

I hope that helps.
