What speed do you set your fan at? - Page 2

post #11 of 19
Only fans I don't run at full speed all the time are the blowers in my 7950 reference coolers.

The low whoosh of air from my CPU and case fans does not bother me in the slightest, the blow driers attached to my video cards are another story.

Long ago the ancient Mayans discovered that water pumps are quieter than fans. Why not have more pumps and radiators, and ditch fans entirely - the ancient kings reasoned. And so they built massive pyramid builds, under the previously undiscovered logic that a pump can be hidden away deep in the caverns, isolated from noise, far superior to a fan that must be exposed to air - woosh woosh - in its function. And so they slaved to build a massive Laing D5 Sphinx with giant passive radiator claws. ROARRRRRRRRRR

Alpha under its shelf, showing the stuff inside it.


The front two NF-P12 intake fans are on their ULNA's, around 900 RPM (but actually less). The side intake runs around 400 rpm at idle. It is a PWM fan that is controlled by the SYS_FAN2 header, which responds to chipset temps. The NF-S12A PWM mid-case fan runs around 500-600 rpm at idle. It is on the SYS_FAN1 header, which also responds to chipset temps.

Β 

The twin NF-A15 PWM's on the Armageddon heatsink plug into the CPU_FAN1 header by Y-cable. The TY-140 (a PWM fan) top intake is plugged into the CPU_FAN2 header. Both CPU fan headers respond to the CPU temps.

Β 

If I had two NF-P12 PWM's, I'd put them in front so I would have an all-PWM system. As it is, the rig is quiet until it needs to crank. When it cranks, it makes wind noise.

Β 

Note that I removed the rear grill. Since I took the picture I have removed the sheet metal between the rear slots for an open air exit space.
