Nepton 240M - noisy Fan

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I installed the Nepton 240m in my CM 690 III, today.

 

My processor is a 3.4GHz Core I7.

My MB  is a Asrock z77 extreme 4.

 

This works very well, my processor is at 30°C (-15° ~)


But the Nepton 240m fans still running at the highest in idle.

Is this normal?

 


I plugged on CPU_FAN1 and fans on CPU_Fan2. Is this the right way?

In any case, it makes a lot of noise. Much more than the basic Air cooling (intel).

How to make the Nepton 240m is adapt the workload of the pc as did original Air Cooling?

 

Sorry for my English, I'm French.

Hello Cryil Morales,

 

Have your check your BIOS settings? CPU Fan 1 and CPU Fan 2 should be set to Auto so that the RPM adjusts based on CPU temperature.

 

You should be able to select either Full On or Automatic Mode.

Hello and thanks for your answers.

 

Mohd Noh, it's not a noisy pump problem ^^ but thanks.

 

CM Patrick, yes that's what I did the day before, I plugged on 4 pin CPU_Fan and I set the two fans at level 5  instead of level 9. (Option: auto / 50° limit). But I find level 9 noisy. Is this normal? (Even if they never need to be at level 9 in a heavy game). My processor does not exceed 45 °.

 

Silence is ok since. I still await an answer before "re-posting".

 

However, the probe indicates that the pump is still running at the highest (2800 rpm ~). (I am not speaking fans there). Is this normal?
I don't know many watercooling, that's why I ask these questions. (Nepton 240M my first ^^).
 
Anyway it works great!
 
Thank you again for your confirmation. Have a good day :)

Hello Cyril,

Yes the pump RPM seems normal. You will also have to adjust this header in BIOS if you want to adjust the Pump RPM. I would suggest keeping an eye on your temperatures if you do end up decreasing the pump RPM.

 

Please let me know if you have any further questions.

Respectfully,

Patrick
