Need some advice. Recently upgraded my PC and bought the Corsair 650 case. All stock fans. At the moment it's a little noisy for my tastes. I asked my technician whether I should let my motherboard monitor and slow my fans down, or whether I should let the case, and his answer was the case, because it looks much neater and noise shouldn't be a problem if you use an in-line resistor for the case fans.
Okay, you guys are the experts. I've got a ASROCK Z77 motherboard. Right now, none of the fans are connected directly the motherboard so I can't control fan speed from my OS/Bios. What would you recommend? That I allow my motherboard to slow my fans down? Or let the case fans do the job and just put a resistor inline to slow them down a bit? Finally, how effective are the Megaflow fans, for the front and top 200mm fans? Can I slow them down and will they be able to cool my machine?

 

Man 3rd option and I believe the better option would be to purchase a fan controller. They are extremely helpful.

Hey mate lol. Was that for me :)

 

If yes, than the monitör is Yamakasi Catleap 1440p monitör that is sold on Ebay.

 

One of the Korean Displays. Check out the make Crossover as well. Or better check the club in my signature if you are interested in such displays. thumb.gif

So you don't agree with the idea behind the motherboard controlling the fans, using software?

No need to tire out the motherboard.

 

However i also do that. I currently have 10 fans in total

6 of them are on a Fan Controller

4 of them on the motherboard

 

Might purchase a 2nd fan controller.

The reason why I thought about using the motherboard was because it gives you flexbility that a fan controller can't. Let's say the temperature reaches a certain point and you want the fans to kick in at a higher speed to cool the components more, a fan controller can't do that right? If you use the fan controller, run a low setting then you could overheat your components if you don't monitor the heat inside the case. I don't know, from what I've read using the motherboard to monitor and cool things seems like there is an awful lot of flexibility involved.

I know that you can not do that with my fan controller but WHO knows there might be fan controllers there that does exactly what you are talking about.

 

Also my fans are very very quiete. So i just leave them on MAX all the time.
