Default CPU Fan Control? Gigabyte Z77x-UD3H - 01-25-2013, 19:25 | posts: 1,946 | Location: Long Island

I am trying to get my CPU Fan to be 100% or atleast higher then it is right now just to further cool my Ivy Bridge 3570K. It looks like in the Bios it either can be disabled, or change depending on Voltage or VRM? Can I change this manually?

Yes I do have that. It is disabled at the moment. Here is a screenshot of Speedfan running during Battlefield 3 minimized.



It's only like 1364 RPM, it should be going faster then that.. Corsair H100i cooler. Something like if my CPU is running higher then 60c it goes to 100% or something of that nature.

You should be able to set your H100i fans to any speed you like in Corsair Link, provided they are stock. Custom profiles can also be set up.

Corsair Link huh? Well I downloaded Corsair Link, do I need some kind of kit for that or I can just download it and use that? I was having trouble getting any kind of control using that when I downloaded it. I'll try a different version maybe.

The H100i uses Corsair Link by default. You just plug in your fans to the pump module. I believe the stock fans will go to somewhere around 2200-2500 rpm.

Disregard these readings - I have my fans running to a controller.

Yeah, it's not bad. I especially like the power consumption/efficiency screen:



The only problem I had was that only the stock fans are controllable; I bought the low-rpm Quiet models. When I first bought the H100i, they said they were working on compatibility with other fans, but no new version has been released yet.

Mine doesn't show anything just blank unless I create my own profile. Is it setup wrong or something, I don't have a default setting.. I don't really know how this really works this software, etc.

Do you have a USB cable running from the pump unit to your mobo? See about 4:10 here:

edit - And the fans are plugged into the top of the unit?

I also have AO in red led showing on my motherboard. Any idea what that is? This is my motherboard. Am I supposed to plug in the USB adapter from the h100i in the CPU_Fan connector above it? I have it FAN4 on the lower part of my motherboard.





*Update the AO isn't an error looks like* There isn't anything wrong with anything really, except the weird RAM issue and trying to get my H100i fan to work correctly*

The mini-USB end goes into the H100i pump and the other end goes into one of the "USB" headers at the bottom of your motherboard - on the left edge of the pic you posted, due to the orientation.

edit - I don't know about the code. Google your mobo along with that code or consult your manual.

OK, should be fine, not really worried about this anyway, what I am worried about is my other topic. Check it out, it is about my EVGA GTX 670 FTW SLi problem.
