Question about controlling fans and pumps - Page 4

post #31 of 39
ok the Phanteks hub is to convert a PWM signal to voltage fans.
Controlling (eg setting a ramp or cutoff etc) yeah, that requires something like Speedfan... which definitely lacks user friendlyness smile.gif

It all depends what you want. I like set & forget.. which means fiddeling with software controls & ramps & profiles, etc until it everything is "just right", to then never touch it again.
I actually let the MB do most of the work (PWM control) and have two "profiles": a winter and a summer setting.
Personally, i think that "manual" fan controllers with knobs & bling are a waste of money. You fiddle with the knobs to set the fans "just right" and never touch it again unless you touch/knock one of the knobs by mistake. I prefer having the computer do the things for me smile.gif
And in that case.. the most advanced fan controllers are things like the Aquaero, the Heatmaster, the T-balancer... you create the profile, save it and dont have to worry about it anymore.
Speedfan allows similar.. but yeah, user friendly is lacking.
The Link definitely looks good, seems a bit more user friendly.... but it is not *that* smart.. and...... it has a temper... it can be as frustrating as AI SmartSuite smile.gif

rhymer362 if you did not already know your motherboard has a very good fan controller built in. I’m not talking about AIsuite. I’m talking about inside the bios. With some PWM splitters (powered from PSU), inline coolant temp probes and some bios tweaking. You can have an almost set and forget setup.

In your MB manual on pages 1-8 & 9, 1-37, 3-45. You can find information on how to assign onboard temp probe headers to control fan speed. How to set fan control to manual and fan input to temp sensor. When the fan header is set to manual your can setup a fan curve based on coolant temp. You will have to adjust your temp curve upper and lower limits based on ambient room temp. You should only have to do this in the spring and fall. Set the idle temp a little higher in the spring little lower on the fall. I would start with 3 or 4 C above ambient room temp for lower limit and an upper limit (system under load) 7 to 8 C above that. Once you find out what your ambient to coolant temp delta T are. You will be able to fine tune the curve.

You are doing a dual loop? Put an inline temp probe on the outlet of your 2 RADs. When you get it configured you will have a very effective cooled and fan controlled system.

I don’t know anything about your Tb Vegas fans. I googled them and they are PWM? With the fans I have. I have ran 5 of them on one PWM splitter with no degradation of PWM signal. You may not get the same results.
If you have question let me know I will try to help.

I knew you could somewhat do this but I already have temp sensors inline monitoring water temp they are as far as 20 degrees off (which is just the water not heating up yet). I didn't know you could assign fan headers to be controlled by temp probe headers on the mb. And I got rid of the Vegas fans. Have ekwb vardars and corsairs perform. Static pressure fans

Apw 63. Reading through my manual I wish I would had done this sooner granted it wouldn't be able to directly read the gpu processor temp but it would have been a trade off instead of having to spend 60 dollars and have another process running in the background. I was pretty sure my motherboard could do this but everyone in all the forums including this one in another post I think said it wasn't an option or haven't heard of it. Thanks for looking into this for me. I may one day rig it up like this when I get tired of dealing with the link"s software.

No problem glad to help a fellow ROG fan. All of the last few generations of ROG boards have this option. Most only allow one temp header to be assigned. The link is really not a very good product. I tried its for a little bit on my other WC rig.

Not sure why you need to direct read the GPU temp. fan speed would be controlled by coolant temp not chip temp. Coolant temp best way to control PWM fans. There is 3rd party software to monitor GPU temp, ASUS tweak2, EVGA precision and others.

I'm just really getting into it so have a lot to learn . I just ordered a kingpin and ekwb block so maybe this card will have a temp header on it I can tie in directly with my motherboard. Well actually I would be able to use the fan header on the card itself wouldn't I ? My hydro copper replacement card was bent and having power issues . And the more I read about the classified and kingpin the more I wanted one and was told I had the option by Evga to Rma the card. But yea about the above thing now that I'm getting the kingpin card I should just be able to tie my rad fans into the van header on the kingpin correct?

My reasoning behind the chip temp is maybe the Tim paste isn't the best installed or something . I just thought it would be kind of a safeguard from frying the chip reading off that. I do have a seperate readout for my water inline on gpu and cpu
post #38 of 39
This is your build and you can configure it any way you like. This is just my thought process and opinion. Are your pumps PWM or DC? You have 2 loops, CPU and GPU. You have 3 temp probe headers and each can be tagged to a fan header. You have 8 full PWM fan headers. The ones that can be tagged to the temp probes are the a/b fan headers, 3 a fans and 3 b fans. Put your fans on a PWM splitter. Put one of your loop fans on one of the fan headers and tag it to a inline temp probe. Put the other loop fans on another fan header and tag it to a different inline temp probe. You can put your case fans on a fan header and tag them to a standard temp probe. The fans headers can be controlled by CPU, MB, VRM or temp probe.

You can monitor your CPU and CPU temps with 3rd party software just to watch the temps. The fans would all be controlled by coolant temp.

The pumps are variable speed pumps if I remember correctly they just have power wires for the pumps and a dial on the pump. I just run them at 4 out of 5. I have my cpu rad fans being controlled on the cpu fan header on motherboard. And a inline temp probe just to be able to quickly visually monitor water temps on that circuit. The gpu right now with the hydro copper is using the corsair link . This weekend though I am pulling that card and sending back to the company . So I will either controll my gpu rad fans with the mother board as you are suggesting off water temp probe. Or I may just get the temp signal from the gpu itself . I guess I'm just stubborn as wanting to run the fans off that temp in the future I may switch it over to run it off the gpu WATER temps . That is for your input man. I really appreciate it .
