Dang. Well that's upsetting. I would like to have the fan control in bios. If anyone has a solution to it (system information viewer) starting up with Windows let know. I've added it to the start up folder but doesn't work unfortunately.

Hi all - first time poster smile.gif

I've built a number of systems over the years, for myself, family and friends - almost always Gigabyte mobos in Antec 300 cases. Nothing flashy, but good bang-for-the-buck. My son is heading to college (in one week!) and I built him a sweet quiet SFF machine for his dorm room (see sig). For that I changed the case to a Silverstone SG-12B, but stuck with Gigabyte for the mobo cuz it has the fan software and PWM headers I needed ... or so I thought frown.gif

I'm through the first 75 pages of this thread, but wanted to post my cry for help before I run out of time to get your feedback and make any fix - then I'll get back to finishing the thread and seeing if I can salvage a satisfactory solution with the hardware we have (but I'm afraid I need to replace my mobo with something non-Gigabyte).

The goal of the build was a quiet-as-possible system without sacrificing performance. To me that meant low-temp / low-power where possible, and multiple quiet fans running at slow speeds - including completely off when the system is idling.

So far, this appears to not be possible with this mobo. Am I right? Finding out that the 4-pin headers weren't PWM (***?), and that the fan software has very little control/customization available (esp for the case fans) - was pretty soul crushing.

I'll be looking into it more myself, but does anyone have guidance on how I can achieve a working solution with this hardware / Gigabyte SIV? Or is this board just not right for this project? And if so, any recommendations regarding the other mfgs (Asus, ASRock, MSI...)? I've at least seen there are some options from other mfgs that use my CPU and RAM, so maybe mobo is all I need to replace? (tho not looking forward to completely pulling this back apart - it's so pretty all put together)

Huge thanks in advance for any help!

Even PWM fans won't turn off completely. They usually have some minimum speed around 20%.

You could use a splitter to route the PWM signal from the CPU fan header to the other fans. Just be careful not to also power too many fans off that header or you might overload it.

This system has basically four fans... two Noctua NF-A14 PWM (140mm) fans for my 280mm Corsair H115i AIO cooler, one Corsair Air Series AF140 Quiet Edition fan, and the default 280 mm front fan for the Cooler Master HAF X case. Additionally, I'm running a EVGA Super Nova 1000 P2 power supply with Eco Mode, which allows the power supply to turn off the fan off until needed.

To control the Noctua fans on the H115i, and the pump speed, I use Corsair's Link software to run both pump & fans in Balanced Mode. This puts the Noctua fans at around 840 RPM, and the pump speed at around 1920 RPM.

With this setup I don't hear any fans running, not ever those of my Sapphire Tri-X R9 Fury... even in all but the hardest gaming environment. I'm also run an Audiophile setup around my PC so I'm looking to hear the nuances of the music, not the noise of the fans.

BTW I don't overclock, so running my fans at low settings doesn't bother me. I also have both the Corsair fan, and the 280mm fan connected to the motherboard's fan headers set to 75 percent in the BIOS. Again, this is an extremely quiet system.

In the end it's a balance between power and quietness of system. For me, I prefer quiet as I don't overclock.

My two cents.

Is it normal for my Skylake (replaced, new) with Arctic Silver 5 (still in break-in period) to idle at about 28-30c ? Stock speeds, DDR4 RAM 3200 MHz.

When Windows boots up for me, the SIV application is working. My fans automatically decrease to the minimum RPM set under the fan settings in SIV.

Are you wanting the application to be open when Windows starts?

The app center starts up, but not SIV. I do want SIV to start with windows, minimized preferably - which "thermald" seems to do from the SIV folder in program files. Any thoughts?

Edit: Well, I did a little digging and made a batch file to start that exe and put it in the start up folder and it works. Would still like to know why it doesn't work for me normally but this will do if needed.

Hi All,

I have the GA-B150M-D3H motherboard and I am having an issue with the computer endlessly booting, but it fails to post. So all the fans and lights will fire up, but the monitor and peripherals won't.

The only way I've found to solve the problem is to take out and re-seat a stick of RAM. This will solve the problem, and I can restart the machine as much as I like. As soon as I shut down the machine and leave it for a few hours, it returns to looping until I re-seat the RAM.

I googled the problem, and a lot of people are saying to update or flash my BIOS, but I've checked and I am running version F5, which is also the latest version listed on the Gigabyte website.

The RAM is G-Skill Ripjaws F4-2133C15D-16GVR, which as far as I can tell is on the compatible RAM list for the motherboard.

Can anyone help me out buy steering me in the right direction.
