(warning) Gigabyte isn´t offering any fan control anymore (z87-z97) - Page 27

post #261 of 265
I can't imagine over powering the PWM signal by having too many fans on one header. I was using this: https://www.amazon.com/Swiftech-8W-PWM-SPL-ST-Way-PWM-Splitter-Sata/dp/B00IF6R4C8
That uses the power supply for power so there is no way of exceeding the motherboard max power draw since it isn't drawing any power through the header. In fact there isn't a 12v wire connected. Just the PWM and speed sensor wires are connected. PWM signal controls the speed of all the fans connected to the hub. Of course it only reads the actual speed from one fan. The Swiftech hub worked perfectly in my setup. Unfortunately since my damn mobo only has one true PWM header I can't use it. The EK D5 pump needs to use the PWM header.

Hello,

I see that this thread has not been active for a few years, but I found a solution.

I have a Gigabyte Z97 Gaming 5 MOBO, exactly like you.
Also, a NZXT H440 case, so you see why software fan control is important to me.

I did manage to figure out a workaround to this problem. Same as you, I was bothered by the fact that my fans would always reset after restarting the pc and I had to run SIV in App Center every time I logged in.

So, I just went to SIV folder (for me it's: C:\Program Files (x86)\Gigabyte\SIV) and found a file there, called "sivinit". After that, all I did was I added this file to my programs at startup folder, restarted the pc and viola, the fans went to me prefferred settings, exactly as I have them setup in SIV.

It's a simple workaround, but I think it's completely fine.

Cheers

Nice tip tim3w4rp. I still lean for SpeedFan since it also controls fans according to GPU temp too.

Well, on windows 10 creators update you cant even install this joke.

When you install the app center from gigabyte website, will ask for an update, and will update to a bugged version with the text `this driver cant release to failure`

Then will ask for another update and when you hit ok. app center will dissappear from windows and never come back. LOL


Thanks gigabyte, you are the software clown of the industry.

Tested on series 9 motherboards.

This will be my last post in this thread and this was my last Gigabyte Mobo. I just switch to a Asus Mobo (Z270 Prime-A). Fan control with SpeedFan is perfect. I can control 6 fans with issue. Ciao Gigabyte!
