How to reduce the fan speed?

Recommended Posts

agvl    0

Hi :) . I have bought a such cooler:

http://www.nix.ru/autocatalog/coolermas ... 79883.html

It is absent on Coolermaster site, therefore I do not know its characteristics. But on the site specified by me, the fan speed is specified from 0 to 2800 rpm. At temperature of 40 degrees on Celsius, speed rises to 2000 rpm, and lower temperature at the processor usually does not happen. How to achieve the fan speed no more than 1000 rpm?

Thanks :)

Depending on what your motherboard is, you may be able to configure the fan speed through your BIOS. There might be a menu named "Fan Control".

Otherwise, you may try and installing the software "SpeedFan", which, if your motherboard is supprosed, will allow for manual fan control as well as automatic fan control according to temperature.

My motherboard is: http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Products/Mot ... A-EP35-DS3

It is specified in its specification:

CPU/System temperature detection

CPU/System/Power fan speed detection

I have installed Speedfan, but the speed has not reduce. Also I did ON or OFF option "Smart Fan" in BIOS Setup, but when OFF - the speed up to 2800 rpm. When the fan rotates in such speed, the noise very much exceeds the level 22 dB promised by the manufacturer.

You have a rare Vortex V4. Only 3000-5000 of these are around the world, so you are a lucky guy. I wish I could help you but I don't have this product in USA so I don't have that spec of the PWM. Let me see if I can find out, but it might be hard since this product is from a different team.

If you have an AMD system, make sure CnQ (Cool'N'Quiet) is turned on. That will drop the fan noise depending on how hot the CPU is getting. I'm not sure what the Intel version of this is, but I'm pretty sure they had one.

Otherwise, you may have to just get a fan speed controller or a fan speed reducer.

I think Speedfan can control that Gigabyte motherboard. You might have to do this:

"Change PWM mode 1 and 2 to "Software Controlled" in the Advanced menu and you're ready to go."

From: http://www.silentpcreview.com/article807-page4.html (different motherboard, but it talks about Smart Fan)
