I have a Gigabyte motherboard which I can use EasyTune6 on. Afaik. it allows you to set the CPU fan control profile, so I can set how much voltage the fan gets by certain CPU temperatures. To my experience this feature ends when I uninstall EasyTune6 and everything returns to default. Is there a way to set things like this without running every time a program at startup?
Afaik. it is possible with some registry tweaks, but I don't know the details. Currently the "smart" fan control lets my CPU overheat, it keeps the fan on 400 RPM, while the CPU temperature is over 60°C by some of the cores. I'd like to have 1400 RPM at these temperatures. Disabling smart fan control and keep the fan on 1400 RPM constantly is too noisy for me.
I installed EasyTune6 again to check how it works.
The fan speed (RPM) appears to depend on something called "temperature #2" instead of the core temperatures of the CPU. I highly doubt that this is normal behavior. :S
Apparently the motherboard and EasyTune6 thinks that the CPU temperature is much lower than it really is.
I am pretty sure the fan is on the good header. I took a photo of it.
Amd here is the relevant section from the motherboard manual:
I shorted the manual control of the CPU fan with a jumper to achieve the max fan speed.
Afaik. pin 4 is for PWM, which this fan does not support.
