Need help with Fan Xpert 2; getting case fan alert

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
New F285V-Pro with CM Hyper 212+ in Rosewill Blackbone case. Rear case fan is 4-pin. Front is 3-pin, but not yet connected. Case still open - no sides.

Since cpu fan as initially installed was louder than I wanted, tried auto configure with Fan Xpert 2. Cpu fan significantly quieter now, but getting 541 rpm alert for rear fan. Graph shows dots at 56%/40c, 62%/60c, and 100%,75c. Monitor shows cpu & mb at 30c and back fan at 517 rpm. Thinking that alert is because temp/speed is lower than graph threshold and that I need to just move the dot across to a lower temp/%, but this is first time using any fan control software, so...

Tried for help over at Tom's, but no such luck. Saw in another fan thread over at Anand's that this may be a better place for this type of stuff. Got my fingers crossed,

I am bit confused what you are asking, change the threshold or adjust fan speeds?

Well, in the BIOS (tap del) navigate to Monitor and you'll see CPU Fan Xpert, under it it'll say "Low RPM Warning" or something similar, change this to ignore. This will stop the annoying low fan message or CPU fan error.

You can also do this from AI Suite, click Tool and click Probe II (or similar) Fan Speed (tab) and either lower the threshold bar or uncheck the tick box next to it.

In AI Suite the fan controlling you are using simply drag the dots to where you like. For case fans I think 40% is the minimum, CPU fans can be whatever you set it as.

Sorry I wasn't clear. Since the mb & cpu temps seem ok, all I really need is to avoid the "false" alert. Don't think I really want to turn off alerts just in case something really does happen. So what I was hoping for is to reset the low end range for the case fan.

Go to the monitor section of bios,enable chassis Q-fan control for the fan in question,this will give the option to raise/lower the low rpm warning level.
Default is 600 rpm, so just drop it to 500 or 400 and you should be good.

Oh right, well the two methods I listed I'm my original post, either via BIOS or Probe II smile.gif
