what is smart fan tiger temperature?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Ok after doing some searching I have somewhat of an idea of what it does. And there was no mention of it in the manual just in case you are wondering. According to this site http://www.silentpcreview.com/article863-page3.html

"Its Smart Fan feature will come into effect based on the chosen "Tiger Temperature." A tolerance of between 1°C and 5°C can be selected."

Ok so if I set it at 45c then the fan will ramp up at 45c right? What exactly is the tolerance. I can choose 1-5. The only thing I can think of is let it "tolerate" a temperature 5 degrees higher than the setting of 45c but I'm probably wrong.

Also would I even benefit having this on since it has amd k8 cool and quiet?

It's a mini itx zotac board with a 3ghz x2 athlon and it gets pretty toasty in that mini itx case. (Idle around 50c in bios) hwmonitor shows it idles at 32c which I know is total BS. This is the first time I've ever seen hwmonitor report the wrong temps.

I think they are just messing around...

It's a typo.
It should read "smart fan trigger temperature".
Tolerance is to change the distance between triggers.
If you look at the pic below you will see an X by the tolerance value,and the value is 5(default).
And you see the distance between the triggers is 5.eg; 30-35-40..
So if you set the tolerance value to say 2,then the triggers would be eg;30-32-34..

So it will ramp up the rpm when it hits the trigger temp.

Hope that helps
