[Guide] The virtues of SpeedFan + control software for fans


1_Nike_1

Recommended Posts

According to the manual of your board I see that only SYS_FAN2 can control 3 pin fans.

CPU_FAN can control the fan only if it is 4 pins.

And the rest can not control the shoes - and when I say the rest I mean SYS_FAN1 and PWR_FAN.

Successfully :]

Not so I realized that SYS FAN2 anyway I plan to replace the fans I have next month

I will take out Thesalman will buy a minibia and replace the stock with a light and quiet model of a tramline

When I said SYS FAN CPU FAN and all that .. it meant the fan connections on your board. Take a look at the picture below, this is a drawing of your board, taken from your motherboard's booklet. You can see the connections and where they are located on the board.

Following a lot of people who want to control their fans, I decided to write a general guide to software that also incorporates the order of actions necessary to control the fans! That is, not only an explanation of control over the fans because it was too short, but control of the fans + a few more intelligences of the known software.

It is important:

- It is important to note that only fans connected via the 3 or 4 connectors on the motherboard can be controlled by the software, since a fan connected directly to the power supply does not pass through any software.

- Please note that Are different from each other and are usually differentiated according to chips and brands, so the instructions here will not be as accurate as possible because each table has its own configurations and capabilities.

IMPORTANT IMPORTANT: Once you exit the program, you lose control over fan speeds, although you can set the program to start operating the operating system.

Now, as I said, it varies between board and board, so I will try to explain as much as possible about BIOUS as a whole so that everyone can understand.

Go to BIOUS and look in one of the menus for fan speeds and system temperatures. In the same menu you will find a CPU Smart Fan option that actually gives BIOUS control over the speed of the fans according to the needs of the system (temperature, etc.) - but of course you have no control over it. You must enable this option and choose PWM under it. Then go back to the main menu of the bios and choose Save and Quit.

Sorry for the ignorance but it's bios and how do I get into it?

Is it possible to control the V1 through this software?

Any standard fan connected to the motherboard can be controlled.

If it's a PWM fan it could be even better in terms of power, including all the benefits of PWM.

And if it is not PWM, then still possible but without the benefits of PWM.

According to what I read here on the forum, V1 has a physical speed regulator .. So that's an advantage even.

First of all, get me a great mortgage!

Truly an investment guide in terms of writing and pictures! : xyxthumbs:

And for a V1 regulator, it might be an advantage to have a physical regulator at all, but it's a disadvantage that it doesn't come out of the chassis.

You need to open the chassis to change the fan speed ...

How can it be controlled remotely on SpeedFan?

To enter-, Change Smart Fan to PWM and that's it, just change the data in the software?

True, but it's not exactly accurate.

One method of PWM measures the voltage output - that is, the voltage given to the same component. When the voltage given to the component is less than the component needs, the switch is turned on and voltage is obtained (not the voltage the component needs, but as much as possible). And when the voltage given to the component is above what it needs, the switch is turned off and the power supply stops. What happens is in milliseconds and bottom line if a fan needs 7 volts and is connected to 12V then it gets the maximum (12) then it is more than it needs to, then it goes out and when it gets below 7 volts (which is less than needed) then the voltage is sent back to The fan. And that happens again and again and in the bottom line he gets his 7 Volt.

The PWM advantage over a potentiometer - the power consumption is reduced because there are pulses and the electricity is not always consumed but only when needed.

Now what happens to the fan potentiometer (in the case of the V1) and also the four-pin connection that supports the PWM (and of course also connected to the four-pin connection in the motherboard) - it is necessary to turn the potentiometer to the maximum of the fan and only then take control through the PWM. This is because the potentiometer is connected to the fan through wires and creates a circuit where you can determine with the switch (potentiometer) the desired voltage to send to it. The same thing the PWM does, except it does it automatically according to the algorithm I explained above. So if you turn the switch to the minimum of the fan which means it is off, there is still a need for the maximum (e.g. 12V). Then - there is no power saving, nor can you make the fan move with the PWM.

Then the potentiometer must be maximized and then the circuit operates indefinitely - as if there is no potentiometer there. Then you can control the PWM.

By the way, I said four-pin PWM, note this. Because the fan can still be controlled by the voltage change it receives in the motherboard connection. But here there is no power saving like the PWM. But there is more saving than the potentiometer, since the voltage coming out of the connection is lower (unlike the explanation of the voltage leakage by using In potentiometer). So if you have an 3 pin connection to the V1 fan, turn the switch to maximum and control through software. very simple.

Successfully. ;)

Can anyone answer me some questions?

1) What is the temp 0-3?

2) Does it make sense that the processor temperature is 37? I'm not doing anything here ...

I have Q9550 and Vendetta2. If I make a grate now and go straight to Bios, he'll tell me around 25 degrees.

Even at these very moments, it has already risen (some of the cores) to 40.

3) Look at the tensions. Makes sense?

It is important for me to know if the Vendetta is squeaking, or maybe the computer circulation is not doing its job.

By the way, I also have HD4870X2, and the processor temperature there is 46 and 32, so it is relatively not such an oven that affects so much ...

Thanks.

Developer:

I also use the software in this software, version: SpeedFan 4.31

In checking the quality / status of my hard disks, I receive, on each disk, a note that I do not understand:

Here are the links to the results:

In both cases, the comments state that the values ​​I receive are lower than any average values.

Do you have any idea if the values ​​are problematic and I need to fix something, or is everything okay?

Thanks

It seems to me that something is wrong with your tensions.

It's worth finding out.
