Hey all... new guy here and I'm having a bit of trouble with setting up my Predator 240.

I put together a new system recently and I'm running an Asus Maximus VIII Hero and my issue is, the Predator radiator fans only run 100% full blast. I cannot for the life of me get the fans to run at a lower speed. Currently the Predator is set up per the instructions with both fans and pump plugged into the Predator's onboard hub. The two pin tach/pwm header is plugged into the CPU_FAN header on the mobo.

I set the cpu fan header to PWM and ran the fan tuner in the BIOS multiple times along with Fan Xpert 3 and I can't get it to slow down at all. What am I doing wrong? Thanks.

There should be a way for you to ramp down the PWM on that header either using the software provided with your board, or by adjusting it within the BIOS.

Make sure also that the headers are connected properly..

I checked all connections and everything looks good. In the BIOS, I cannot change anything regarding the CPU fan, everything is greyed out or locked out. Right now the rad fans are running at 2100 RPM and nothing is having any affect. I thought the CPU fan header was supposed to ramp up and down based on cpu load? I don't see where I can make that happen.

Technically not by load but by cpu temp.

I don't have that particular board but seeing as its greyed out I'm guessing there's some option in your bios that isn't checked or enabled to allow pwm control of that header.

Just guessing here.

Yes thanks, I meant temp.

It's not really greyed out per se, but I'm not really able to manual dictate cpu fan settings at all. It's like the Predator unit ignores all PWM signals. Maybe I'm just really dense here and not understanding how the Predator is supposed to work.

I'll see when I get my 240 sometime this week. I am thinking yes since it can fit 140s up top
