Sounds like fans are going at 100% when PC is IDLE

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So I just got this PC all set up yesterday with three GTX 760's and the EVGA SuperNOVA P2 1000W. I can't really tell which fans it is making all the noise but I think its either my cards or my PSU. Even tho when I look in Precision X the fans seem to be going at like 40%.. but it sounds like they are on full blast. All in all I have 15 fans running in the case, five 120mm fans at the top, one 240mm fan in the front, one 240mm fan on the side, one 120mm in a GPU vent inside, and one 120mm fan on the back, then two fans in each card, and the fan on my PSU

Even at 40% that should sound like a jet engine. Do you have the opportunity to tune them down to 25%?

Okay I just tried to change the fan set up in precision X but the fans wont go under 43%. I changed it to 20% if its below 50c and they are stuck at 43%. They will go up to 50% but they wont go down below 43%
