9700 on e6600/680i

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I just installed the 9700 and noticed fan doesnt have 4 pins. I then realized that i cannot controll fan speed within ntune nore bios. The ntune monitor shows cpu rpm at 5600, im thinking this is wrong cause max rpm on the box says 2800 and its very loud at 100%. I didnot install the manual fan controller. Temps at oc 3.2ghz show idle 40C is this normal with 1.31v cpu. Also is there a program that can controll fan speeds by only using 3pins?

Well I dunno about the 9700 but my TT120 came with a fan controller that works perfectly fine. Low / Medium / High settings.

Not much temp diff between Low/High though tbh.. I crank it up to medium or high when I'm gaming though, cause I have headphones.

dont worry about the 4 pin thing. thats fine. my board has 4 pins too but my 9700 works fine.

as for the temps, what is your thermal compound and what are you using to monitor the temps?

and as for controlling the fan speed, google and download speedfan, its a great temp monitoring program that lets you view fan speed, voltages, and other good stuff as well as controlling the fans thats connected.

I have ntune or rivatuner and TAT. All show around the same. As for fanspeed i never liked that program. I used the coumpound that came with it and ive read everywhere that ac5 is the best and what I used sucks. But anyways it dropped 10C from stock intel fan to 9700 so that leaves me room to oc more maybe 3.6 or so. I just hooked up the controller but i dislike the wires coming out of my case. Thats why i was wondering if a program can controll them.

i mounted the fan controller to my PSU because my case has a side window which i can remove whenever i want. and i usually dont change the speed that much.






and the nail polish compound looking stuff is supposedly as good as AS5. i use it too because i forgot to buy some AS5. i think AS5 can drop my temps a little bit more though.

thanks pinoy, after seing your pic i decided to move mine to the very back of case. I was wanting it near the front so i can change it easy but it looks alot better in back. I guess im ready for some overclocking. Underload, playing armedassault my temps got to 46C and idle around 40C. what do you think i can go to now. I have memory unlinked at 800mhz and cpu at 3.2ghz and i think i bumped up cpu voltage a little but left 2.1v on memory. I think my memory will only allot 1:1 3.6mhz stable right?

only way to know is try it and see.. small baby steps till you hit the wall.

all systems are different.. otherwise this wouldnt be a forum, but a bunch f tables telling you what to set everything to

Not sure if i need to resink the 9700 and use more or less compound. I got it up to 3.6ghz 1.4v vcore and 1.4v fsb. 9x 400. Idle temps around 45C and gameing temps around 55c-58c. For everyday computer do these temps seem ok.
post #9 of 11
EDIT: those were the temps i had before i lapped my e6600. i were fine twith those temps, but idle is kinda high. did you follow the instructions for the thermal compound? it says to apply it to both cpu and hsf base. i applied only on the cpu before and it wasnt enough. i was idling 45.

and back to the fan controller, i waned to put it in the back of my case too but i didnt want the wire going across my whole mobo and out my case.

I applied to both cpu and hsf but i did take it off and push it back down. I was having problems getting screws in. I think maybe a new case would help. I have a old case with 3 intake, 1 front, 2 on side. One on the side is blowing on my gpu to help keep it cool, im sure everyone knows 8800gtx run hot and also i have another 1 on the side blowing to the processor. I have 1 blowing out which i know i need maybe 1 more but i dont want negative air flow because my gpu is blowing out the back. I guess you can say i have two blowing out counting the psu. I would like to get a full tower and use 120 fans. Any ideas on a full tower maybe below 200usd???
