I raise them to any value and withing 1 sesccond, it gets back to it`s crazy-no logic value, regardless of the manual/temperature cruise/speedfan IV setting. The fans are somehow responsive to the rising heat, but not within any curve, they seem to random. In manual setting for CHA fans, they spin up to 500 rpm even if the CPU has 30c and the curve starts at 50c.
I chose not to bother anymore, i use my headset when gaming and it`s very quiet when i`m not (2 140mm Noctuas a5 ~250 rom are really unaudible)
It will hopefully solve when i get another mobo with a very good fan management built in AND, even more important, if the GPU flash will solve the semi-passive mode through its gpu mini pwm fan header.

@storm-83 , thanks mate, i love them too. After dozens of trials and errors, this is the best all around cooling solution for my quiet expectations. There`s nothing water can do, that air can`t do better. Regarding noise, the two variants are in very different leagues. Regarding cooling at the same high noise level, the two systems are on par, but when a low noise is desired, water loses fast. The only advantage is that you can take the cooling a little bit further away from the exact part that needs to be cooled (for mATX builds) and it`s thermodynamics is a little bit better, since it has a smaller thermal inertia.
About the fin orientation, trust me, it wouldn`t matter on the GPU (you have fans on it and the airflow is vertical), unless you`re planning to cool it passively, only with the airflow from the intake and exhaust. I had that fin orientation on my first GPU heatsink, Accelero S1, i think it was 10 years ago.

I was actually thinking about the cpu`s fin orientation, on the second part, that is bent horizontally. It`s fins oppose the airflow from the front, and perhaps a classic tower, like the Noctua/BeQuiet/Scythe would have been a little better in this passive mode, but when i bought it i intended to use it in an active mode and that horizontal heatsink was meant to cool the RAM and the MOBO. Anyway, i bet it wouldn`t make much of a difference. 3c tops. Nothing to justify changing it. Plus, i like the way it`s steampunk look smile.gif

I know this is an old thread, but everyone should start using Argus monitor: http://www.argotronic.com/en/ instead of speedfan.
Extremely simple to use, and you can set speed of fans based on either gpu/cpu or other and set a custom curve.
It also have great monitoring capabilities- plain awesome software.
