Problem with Accelero Twin Turbo Ii and gigabyte GTX 760

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
So I've installed the cooler on the videocard, but I can't normally control the fan. When I set it to 20% (in idle), the fans starts going from min to max rpm constantly.
When I set it from 33% to 40% it actually is at about 70% (judging by the noise). And when i set it to something over 40%- it goes to max speed.
Now I am using the 7v adapter, but I want to be able to manually control the fan speed.

Has anyone else got the same cooler and faced a similar problem ?

im assuming you mean can.

what header do you have the fans plug into? ( GPU, mobo, psu, or a fan controller)

why do you switch from the gigabyte wind force stock cooler?

plz list the rest of your specs.

I am using the video card's 4 pin fan header. The stock cooler was noisy and temps were higher than I wanted. And i can't control it like it should.
As i said, when i put it at 20%, it starts going from min to max speed all the time.
If by specs you mean my Pc, here they are:
CPU: Core I5 4570
MB: Asrock B85 pro4
PSU: Seasonic S12 II 520W
HDD: WD Blue 1 TB
RAM: 8 Gb DDR3 1333

make sure your driver, bios, and chipset driver are all up to date.

if this was a problem with the stock cooler too. i would rma the card. or you can buy a cheap fan controller of off ebay for like 10-15$.

Drivers are up to date and the stock cooler was working normally. I've read on the arctic website something abouth this issue. Look like the problem is in the way newer Nvidia drivers control the fan speed

"Nvidia graphics cards with their latest drivers may be misinterpreting the fan speed of our coolers and thus the reporting through software is wrong. Further Nvidia is no longer controlling the fan speed depending on PWM values based on the GPU temperature. E.g. if you set 30% PWM, Nvidia translates it into 1050 RPM. Independent whether you run a 40 mm (10,000 RPM max) or a 140 mm (1,500 RPM max) fan and independent of their maximum fan speeds, Nvidia will drive both at exactly 1050 RPM. "

At 7v the temps and noise are O.K, I just wanted it to be a little quiter in idle. Maybe the only hope is somewhere in the future they will change something in the drivers

well try using using an earlier driver version or grab a cheap fan controller and hook up to it.

Downgrading driver didn't help. I have a fan controller, but the cooler's fan uses some kind of mini 4 pin connector (smaller than a case fan), so i can't use it (also can't find a proper adapter...)

The black wire is ground, the red wire is +12v, the yellow wire is rpm sensing, the blue (or other color wire) is PWM control. The first three wire positions, ie black, red, yellow line up the same on a 3 pin connector as on the 4 pin PWM connector and vice versa. No adapter is needed, unless your fan controller has space for only 3 pin, which in that case I would cut the excess plastic housing.

I mean that the fan connector from the cooler is smaller than a normal 4 pin fan connector (for exampla my CPU cooler's fan), so I can't plug it in the controller

OK, lets not get 4 pin fan connectors confused, heh.

This is a PWM four pin fan connector:

Note that it will fit on a 3 pin fan header also.

This is a four pin molex connector:


Can you post a link to your fan controller ?

Also, your ARCTIC Accelero TT II is similar to my Ultra Carbon X4 VGA heatsink (got it on CompUSA clearance for $12, heh). My Ultra Carbon X4 4pin did have a non standard pitch pin setup, so it needed a mod.

Im just thinking maybe the fan manufacturer is the same ?

BTW, My Ultra Carbon X4 in passive mode without any fans keeps my GTX 650 a bit cooler than the stock HSF that came with it. smile.gif
