smart fan? manual fan speed to 100%?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
hey, well i had smartfan set in bios and my cpu fan on my zerotherm btf90 was working at 890rpm and my core temp was 45 on idle and 51 on load. i set it to manual at 60% speed (1200rpm) and my temps are 41 idle and 47 load. i was wondering if it would be a good idea to set it manually to something like 80 -100%. i dont wanna kill the fan but id see better temps for sure. what do you think?

Shouldn't kill it. May be alot louder though.

all my fans are always set to 100%. it's louder sure but I don't believe it is going to cause that quick of a loss of life fora fan.

hell I still use fans from way back that still work fine for years.

You could use Speedfan to have it throttle up as temperatures rise. That way when you're just browsing or playing music or whatever, you don't have fan noise. When you're gaming or doing anything else intensive, the fan speed will crank up to deliver better cooling.
