Folding power was set to Full and task manager and resource monitor all showed all 6/12 core/threads running @ 100%. So you figure I setup the cooler alright then? Doing its job?

Those are darn good temps.. People with huge coolers don't get much better temps! thumb.gif
Congratulations on a great build! cheers.gif

What are cooler fan speeds like?

On i7 980 and i7 920 with top of the line monsters like Silvers Arrow IB-E, Cryorig R1 Ultimate, PH-TC14PE and Silver Arrow SB-E (coolers with more than twice the the size of TRUE Spirit 120) temps run 43-49c. redface.gif

Yes I figured as much, this cooler being virtually half the size of the big boys and with only one fan is doing a pretty good job. biggrin.gif

As you might remember I was mainly worried about TIM application and cooler mounting issues, given these temps I think that is out of the question.

Thank you I really appreciate your help and input.

As for fan speeds I need to install ASUS AI Suite III or some 3rd party application to monitor them in the OS environment. Will let you know how that goes. Cheers cheers.gif

Thanks for the link doyll, is that tips for ROG boards or general AI Suite III tips? Strange thing is OpenHardwareMonitor does not provide any information on the CPU core temps, CPU fan speed and nothing on the motherboard either. WIll download AI Suite III and get back you you on fan speeds and all, It also provides info on chassis fans and all, except the chasis fans are 3-pin and not PWM. WIll let you know how that turns out. Cheers.

Generally all motherboard fan headers monitor fan rpm. No idea why Open Hardware Monitor isn't showing temps.

HWMonitor 1.25 by CPUid (freeware) was released 5/5/14 and is easy to use. Download the Portable version and you don't even install it... Just extract and run the .exe file wink.gif

Yes you're right, they monitor RPM. As for OpenHardwareMonitor I checked the documentation section on the site and under supported hardware > CPU core sensors it says : Intel Core 2, Core i3/i5/i7, Sandy Bridge, Ivy Bridge, Haswell.

Apparently no Ivy Bridge-E support, 4930K being one I guess that is it. Mind you I guess it doesn't support X79 chipset either cause I don't get any information on the mobo either.

Thanks for the HWMonitor link I would give that one a shot and see how it goes, will let you know wink.gif

Hi there doyll. Hope all is well with you. I installed the AI Suite III and checked how the fans (CPU and chassis) performed.

Here's a shot of Core Temp:




Here's the shot of AI Suite III Fan Xpert 2 tab showing the CPU frequency, voltage, fan temp. and fan speed and also chassis fans:




Chassis Fan 1 = Back Exhaust

Chassis Fan 2 = Side Fan

Chassis Fan 3 = Top Exhaust

Chassis Fan 4 = Front Fan (bottom HHD Cage)

The CPU Fan is in RPM mode and I manually set it to 950 rpm.

All chassis fans are on smart mode, automatically controlled by the system.

What you think about the whole setup now? Are these good? All this was done while folding@home client was running at full speed.

BTW the HWMonitor (CPUid) is not working for me. It shows wrong temps for CPU cores (I cross checked with Core Temp and Real Temp 3 both of which show same values in consistence with the AI Suite III readings.) It doesn't show CPU fan speed and only shows chassis fan speed of 3 out of 4 fans.

Looks very good! Another job well done! thumb.gif

Why are you using fixed speed on CPU fan instead of auto? Just curious.

It is strange, these temp and fan speed monitoring issues. Maybe we will figure it out someday.

Thanks doyll. Yes I guess as you said the cooler is doing a fine job, considering. The air flow inside the case is OK I think, not saying ideal but it's alright.

I was running CPU fan at fixed speed (RPM mode) because FAH client was using the cores at 100% and wanted to keep the CPU temp below 60 C. Otherwise the best mode, most power efficient and the quietest mode is no doubt the smart mode controlled by the system itself.

I came across something about the monitoring issues/glitches. After I installed the AI Suite III the other day, sometimes when I play around with the AI Suite 3 interface and toggle stuff, the Q code LEDs changes and shows code 80 which is not included in the manual. First I thought it was B0 then I realized in order to distinguish 8 and B in seven segments "B" is shown as "b", therefore that must be 80.

I read posts in ASUS VIP forums on people having the same issue and their Q code changing from A0 or AA -- which is the right code after system posts and BIOS hands over the control to the OS -- to 80. Some people said it happens because they installed AI Suite III and that it screws the whole OS up and its effects will not go away even if you uninstall it and clean your registry of the relevant records. Apparently the only final and straightforward solution is a clean reinstall of OS. Another person mentioned "Forgot to mention AI Suite will not co-exist with other HW monitor sw like Aida64 or HWInfo"! That must be our culprit, mind you, the OpenHardwareWonitor and the HWMonitor by CPUid were acting funny even before I isntalled AI Suite III, then again they manifest different results now.

Another post I came across on a ROG support forum, by a "super moderator", is that the q code 80 is ok and it means and I quote "Means your system is using a new Win8 capable BIOS and has handed over AHCI to OS. All is good." upon being asked how he knows that he has said "Asked the bloke who actually designs the BIOS. Seemed like the best thing to do."

I'm actually confused and don't know whether I should reinstall OS or take that for granted and leave it be. After the q code changes to 80 there's no apparent negative effect on the system and apparently everything is working, well as far as I have noticed.

Sorry for the long post, had to tell you though biggrin.gif
