Been using Fan expert to control my fans, it's pretty damn good. Normally I just runs my fans at 800RPM-1000RPM on my fan controller. Most of the time running with Fan Expert my main rad fans stay off and my little 280 at the bottom of my case with very little air flow is enough to keep things cool.

So I would say yes, it's surprisingly good.

I'm running 12 fans off mine.

Morning!

Last night I downloaded 3D Mark and Real Temp. Ran a 3D Mark Test with Real Temp open in the background. The max core temp I got a 4.3GHz was 57C, the average was around 50c.

I think tonight I will bump the voltage up a tiny bit and see if I can get to 4.6GHz.

I am going to get a hold of IBT and OCCT and check them out. Seems like 3D Mark is pretty limited with the demo license. Your certainly right though, I didn't build the rig to get good benchmark scores, I built it to kick butt at MW3 and Diablo III so there is no better test than playing a game for a few hours. Thanks for the good advice.

BTW side question, I have 32GB of 1600MHz DDR3 (Corsair Vengeance), is it worth overclocking?

You can use the thermal radar fan control or fan xpert2. Both are excellent. The former allows for tying control to the various temp sensors on the board but limits the bottom end of PWM case fans to 40% while the latter ties control to only CPU temp but allows PWM case fans to go down to 30%. I'll quote myself:

Fan Control. Asus really has a nice fan control package on this board. Whereas Fan Expert II (which also works with this board although Asus claims that it doesn't), ties all fan control to CPU temp, the Thermal Radar fan control allows you to pick any one or up to a combination of three different temp sensors on the board off of which to base fan control. Unfortunately, Asus ruins this nice feature by basing the software off of what appears to be fan xpert+ since you cannot bring the non-CPU fans to under 40% (you can, however, as in fan xpert2, stop the case fans below a certain temp). So, you are faced with a tough choice, use the Thermal Radar fan control to take advantage of multiple temp sensors but have your non-CPU PWM fans limited to a minimum running speed of 40% or use fan xpert2 and be able to have your non-CPU PWM fans drop down to a a speed of 30% but have all fans tied to CPU temp. There is no reason that we should have to make this choice.

Guys how are my temperatures?

 

I have an Aerocool Xpredator case.

 

1 230mm fan on the front as intake

1 140mm fan on the bottom as intake

2 140mm fans on the top as exhaust

1 Corsair H80 CPU cooler mounted on the rear. The fan on the back of H80 is getting cool air from outside, and the other fan in the other side of H80 is in the same direction of the rear fan.

 

My Gigabyte 670 OC with a mild OC is 73 degrees maximum with about 60-65% fan speed

My i5 3570k runs around 67-69 degrees when gaming in BF3, it is not OCed but the multiplier is 3.8 *100 thanks to the Turbo mode on the CPU. I rarely see it at 3.4.

 

Am I safe for the time being?

I am thinking of adding a 2nd 670 down the line, will temperatures be ever get into the danger zone if I add a 2nd 670?

 

Also please note that I only installed the rear Turbo fan as exhaust on the motherboard. Should I disable it? Since the Corsair's fan is an intake fan right next to it? Maybe the heat that the turbo fan is pumping outside is being sucked a little by the h80s fan since they are very very close to each other?

What are your voltages at? Have you left them on Auto? I think you could stand to lower the voltage to offset+ 0.035 if you don't plan on overclocking. If you leave it on Auto, when you game it will crank itself up to 1.40v which is way to high for stock..it will also produce a lot of heat. Depending on your ambient temps, if you lower your voltage, you might also lower your CPU load temps. I don't think your mobo exhaust fan will make a diff on your intake..your cards seem to be sitting at the right temp for BF3..I'm thinking your high CPU temps (they are high for 3.8) is the voltage

Saurk, unless you are changing the BCLK , then having no choice but to OC the RAM, there really isn't any benefiet to OCing your RAM. leave it at it's XMP

I have everything set at AUTO on my UEFI except i switched the ram speed to 1600mhz...

 

SO all i should do now is to go to the UEFI and make the voltage offset .035?

 

I will do that.

Also I noticed something guys.

 

My CPU is always at 3.8... Never gets lower when idle. Do i have to enable something on the motherboard for that?

 

my old 2500k would hit 4500 OCed and go to 1600 when idle as far as i remember.

It is a problem with the Asus BIOS when you manually set RAM speed. Set it back to AUTO and the CPU will downclock properly. I had the same issue.

Nope no luck. 

 

I set it at Auto and the CPU still works at 3.8 :(

 

Its alright though I am not too bothered about it.

 

 

Also guys i changed my Off Set Cpu Voltage to +0.05 and now according to CPUZ my vcore is 1.240 max.

What are you using to monitor it? Core Temp doesnt show correctly for me Asus AI Suite II monitor and CPU-Z do. On core temp it looks like it never drops below 3.6 but the other two will show that its hitting 1.6 range idled.
