Temperature probes positioning

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

Just purchased the Thermaltake Hardcano 12 fan controller unit, and was wondering what the best method is for attaching the temp probe on the CPU (Intel 775 socket). Currently I have just attached the probe on the top of the heatsink base, but the temp reading doesn't increase as much as the reading I get via the motherboard. At idle, the mobo temp says 38degC the hardcano says 34degC...under full load the mobo says 57degC the hardcano says 45degC.....this cause a problem..

The problem is that the hardcano increases fan speed the higher the temps get, and they aint gettin hot enough according to the probe....

Help!!!

Not sure exactly where you mean...

Last night I tried several locations...trying to find a point where the temperature rises and falls enough to satisfy the Hardcano fan controller.

Range at the moment is form around 32degC to 43degC at the probe...which isn't enough. The Hardcano has preset temperature ranges of 40, 50, 60 and 70 DegC. IF I set it to 40, then the fan spins too fast and the alarm sounds unecessarily. If I set the alarm temp to 50, its not bad at idle, but because the temps dont get anywhere near 50, the fan only spins at around 65% at a guess...which isn't fast enough.

What I did notice however (while probing around for a good hot spot) is that the bracket used to hold my Thermaltake Beetle HSF down on the mobo gets very very hot especially around one of the screws which secure the bracket to the mobo. Anyone else noticed the same thing?????

Why not just disable temperature fan control?

Noise levels are unbearable when they all spin at 100%.

Defeats the purpose of my $95 hardcano 12 fan controller which I just purchased...

and above all...very boring....!
