Should I run the pump on a separate profile, and what is a good startup boost setting for it?
I am jjust seeking the quietest basic running state without fans ramping up and down.
I get the feeling my pump and or fans have some kind of min voltage action going on.I just set min temps and power down pretty low all around and fans and pump shut themselves completely off, then suddenly ramp up now and again. Not ideal, to say the least. Can't quite figure out what is going on with this all.
Thanks for any help and insight into how all this stuff clicks. All new to me.
There is a myriad ways to set up curve controllers but I'll lay out what I find easiest.
First you need to create a sensor that you want to use to base the controller from. A coolant temp, delta temp, etc
Then you want to set the min and max speeds on the fans you will assign to that controller. Adjust the fans to a quiet speed and set that as min, then adjust them to as loud as you want them and set that as max.
With the pc idling and fans at min note the sensor temp and set that as the base of the curve, or 0%.
Then play a game for half an hour or so or use some sort of intensive load for a while with the fans at max speed, note the temp and use that as the top of the curve controller or 100%.
By adjusting the fan min and mix speeds earlier it means we can use a simple 0 to 100% curve controller, without trying to set min & max speeds in the controller itself.
Your done. You can then make small adjustments to min and max speeds of the fans or adjust the curve controller a degree or so either way if you aren't happy with it, but it should smoothly adjust the fan speeds based on how hard the system is working, slowly ramping up to full speed and slowly cooling down to idle speeds.Edited by Jakusonfire - 10/12/15 at 2:03am
