Help with turning up fan speed?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Specs
Asus sabertooth 990fx R2.0
Phenom II x4 965
NZXT Havik 140

Basically, i recently bought a havik after having a stock cooler for ages. I only have one problem, the fans never seem to change speed. I cant seem to be able to get them to change speed in the bios either.

The fans are 3 pin fans plugged into the 4 pin above the cpu.

I will upload some pics of what my bios setting are and it never changes anything.

Extra: I got told to disable cool n quiet with i have done and re-enabled it as it changed nothing.

Go to fan expert and set your fan profile to user! Then adjust it to whatever limit you want the fan to spin on. I have mine on 100% all the time, also go to control panel,security settings,power control, then set your power plan to high performance as well.

I am pretty sure my motherboard doesnt have Fan expert. I think its only certain asus motherboards.

Ive just opened asus thermal radar and tried changing the settings and restarting my pc but it still does NOTHING!


Just stays at roughly 1300 rpm...

Robbie- Iam fairly confident the Sabertooth motherboard schould have fan control 4 gods sake thats one of the best motherboards in the market lol. It looks like in the picture its around 1300 rpm let me check mine is at 100% giving me 1795 rmp at full blast! Maybe your at 100% already just have a slower spinning fan? I still cant get over Sabertooth not having Fan control-Whats all that about?!.................Try putting it on Turbo or MANUAL setting the Cpu fan-Will it let you do that?

Also looking at the RPM on your fan and also teh temps I think its possible since you and I are only 500 rpm diffrence I think its possible your fan just spins a little slower thats all? Like I said I have mine at 100% giving me 1795 rpm your at 1300 rpm and your temps seem to be ok so I would say keep messing with the settings and try to get it to go up some more? I use a ThermalTake cpu cooler probbly diffrent then urs how many MM are the Fans on the cpu cooler? If you have 140mm fans that could be the reason they are spinning at that speed~

Yeah they are 140mm
Thanks or the help bro.
I might have to re-sit the cooler then because its supposed to be one of the best around but it goes over my cpu's max temp (62C) when at 3.8GHz.

62c is fine if those are prime tests

I never played with that board before so i'm not sure if what i'm saying is true, BUT... it looks to me you are plugging a 3pin fan into a PWM connector. which means it will ONLY run at max speed since you aren't using PWM signal to regulate the speed of the fan.

can it be that you are so used to hearing the REALLY LOUD stock cooler fans that even the havok 140 running at max speed seem low to you?

I could be wrong and your mobo might be able to detect the difference between PWM and 3pin fans and control the speed accordingly, but it sounds like you are running your fan at max speed full time and not realizing it.
