Taichi x570 chipset temp - simple way to drop it?
New member of the Taichi x570 family, first build in 8 years since my 3770K / Z77 Sabertooth which was a total champ and now belongs to my daughter. New specs below.
I read a lot about the chipset temp and how the GPU covers the fan on the Taichi. At room temp of 22c, my chipset temp was idling at 62C which seems a bit high to me.
So I noticed that my Gigabyte 2070 Super doesn't spin up the fans until a certain temp is reached -- they literally don't spin which is crazy to me. So Afterburner and a custom fan curve to the rescue. Set to 35% on GPU fans at idle which is inaudible in my new rig. Escalating spin-up of fans as temps increase.
Cooler GPU = cooler chipset on the Taichi x570, got my chipset temps down from 62C to 54C idle. I also created a custom fan curve for the chipset in bios, but at idle (silent - that little bugger is loud as s*it), it didn't really move the needle.
Hope this is helpful for anyone experiencing high chipset temps.
