Asus Rampage III Extrem - Fan controller

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
My fans run at 100% even though I have them on silent... is that because it's connected through 3 pin instead of 4? How can I lower rpm without installing any extra software by using windows?

The cpu fan header will run at 100% regardless unless you have a pwm 4pin fan.

The other fan headers can be controlled through the bios regardless of 3 or 4 pin fans installed.

I used duty mode of about 60% for my cpu heatsink fan off of the pwr fan header.

I have a Blackbird too, I think the top fans are Delta 38mm's. Not sure if they have a connection for pwm control, I'm still on the stock motherboard so haven't touched them... I do have a sneaking suspicion the power supply is quite noisy... thinking of replacing it with an ax850 as it is supposed to be very quiet.... I know you can control the the graphics card/harddrive bay fan in stock configuration... even when that's off it doesn't seem that quite overall... deltas are supposed to be a bit noisy, somehow I don't think they are to blame... also I have heard that some motherboards can't handle 38mm fans and they need to be wired to the psu/fan controller. Don't have my Blackbird for another month as I've moved country so can't confirm....

dont understand why motherboard manufactures dont implement fan control functionality, even though some of it there... but it's pretty useless.
