Yours should take 1.

Configure, Advanced Tab, ITF??? Chip??? Not sure what your motherboard one is for YOU.

You should see "PWM 1 mode" and PWM 2 mode


software controlled = speedfan
guardian = mobo bios/hardware settings
on off self explanatory

Yes I found that tab and mine has PWM modes 1-4 all on the "Manual set PWM" setting, PWM types 1-4 with #1 set as PWM mode (Intel4-wire) and the other 3 are "Linear DC mode".

Fans 1-4 div/mult are all set to 1, and Reverse PWM logic is all set to "off", I didn't see anything about software controlled or any of that though. Is my mobo not detecting the fan perhaps? So clueless lol

I just went into the BIOS to check if there was something I could change there for the fans and under my H/W monitor tab it says the CPU FAN speed, SYS FAn 1 and 2 speeds are all at 0 RPM. Yet the fan on it does work it just goes on and off randomly..

that means they're spinning at the threshold of too low. if my fans spin at a low rpm, below like 500 or 400 they barely spin, sometimes on off

Ya IM not sure why they won't turn on...on another note I was looking at buying the Antec Kuhler 620 because I've seen great reviews about that you think that would be a good cooler for me?

Closed loop coolers don't perform better than equivalent priced air cooling.

Example. H100 vs Noctua D14? $100+ vs an $70-80 air cooler.

The D14 performs roughly the same with fans that spin 600rpm SLOWER (1800rpm vs 1200rpm).

So no. Closed loops do not get my vote for good value cooling per dollar. Except if you need the small form factor and can't close the lid / fit air heatsinks in your tower.

Ya I hear ya. Honestly I wouldn't mind the size of this cooler if it only performed as intended lol, all I really want is temps in the 70s running Prime with an OC stable so I can mash out on games without having to worry about overheating ha.

Any other ideas on why my fan doesn't seem to notice my cpu getting hot? I'm going to check and see if I plugged the power cable correctly and the mobo cable but I'm almost positive I did....thanks for your input on this by the way, so frustrating to keep trying new things with no results frown.gif

You do know prime runs like 10-20C hotter than any game you will play?

I'm pretty sure

1) Fan speed
2) Mounting

Are the only factors barring horrible QC on those units but I don't' think your heatsink has broken pipes or connections. Power cables unplugged would produce worse problems like not booting...

Ok so I just fixed the fan problem there was a cable that goes to my custom fan LED control on the front of my case that I was plugging it into, and I instead plugged it directly into the mobo and now it seems to be running fine.

Still getting pretty high temps with Prime but I'm idling 40C at 4ghz OC 1.28v core, so a bit better than what I had. Would love to see lower temps with it, but as you said Prime is running things way hotter than it will ever be with a game so maybe I'll just live with it tongue.gif. Tennis practice right now so i'll be back later to tinker with it a bit, thanks again for all your help man.

No problem smile.gif

1.28 is really high for 4ghz. that much extra voltage would explain high temps. I have 4.6 ghz on 1.24 i believe.

Yes your right I managed to shave off .4 volts which helped a bit, thanks.

If anyone has any extra tips on why my CPU is still running so hot let me know thanks!
