    Hi,
    Shall give those settings a try .

    The 80mm fan attached to the rad in this rig is attached to the CPU Fan socket on the Mobo. Am wondering whether this should be connected to one of the other fan connectors. Any ideas please?
    As the fan connector is a 3-pin one at a guess the fan cannot step-up and step-down accordingly as this would require a 4-pin connector for PWM is this correct (perhaps I'm barking up the wrong tree)?

    Thanks.


    .... Really need to get some kip now.



    Edit:-
    Cannot understand why the CPU whilst idle is using 1.248v. Checked the BIOS settings and nothing in there matches this voltage.
    Confusing.
    c1e was enabled however is disabled now as suggested.

    Cannot find any reference to 'dvid' anywhere unfortunately - any ideas please?
    Thanks.

    Select enable fan control and manually set mode to voltage, that would lower fan speed when emps are low.

    Thanks . Didn't realise that the fan could be controlled via the voltage ramping up and down (as required) whilst plugged into a Mobo fan socket.

    Caffeine I need you .

    Edit:-
    Fan control was enabled however was set to 'Auto' - at a guess this meant that it was in PWM control. Anyway 'Voltage' control has now been set. Thanks again.

    If cpu voltage is set to normal it should unlock dvid for adjustment,look in Windows power saving options and makesure its set to balanced,you can buy a y splitter for your fans or connect second one to mb

    Hi Wazza300,

    Thank you for your reply. Shall check the cpu voltage setting in the BIOS again as it's not budged from 1.248v.

    Am pleased to say that the machine's been running well for the last 48-72 hrs since overclocking.

    My iMac that's literally only just out of warranty died this morning so I was quite unhappy about that. No doubt the repair costs are going to be costly.

    Had three movies playing back concurrently via VLC, Quicktime and WMP; was downloading several music tracks from Ovi; Copying several Gig worth of files from one folder to another and encoding an M4V file to 3GP (think that's 'encoding' and not called something else anyway).... and the CPU was still running at idling speed of 2.4GHz (should it not have ramped up a little?). Basically the machine was not complaining at all.

    Only thing I'm concerned with is that the Liquid Cooling might not be adequate without an additional 80mm Case Fan mounted onto the opposite side of the rad. Any idea's where suitable screws/bolts can be found please? (Think they're 3mm dia screws/bolts and will need to be long enough to go through an 80mm Case Fan and be able to screw into the rad).

    Tried Wilko's but they did not have any 3mm screws/bolts unfortunately.
    (think they're 3mm dia screw/bolt holes however am not 100% certain - by all means correct me should I be barking completely up the wrong tree).

    Thanks again for your help. Really interested to get more into modding and OC'ing.


    Edit:-
    Forgot to mention that the 80mm Case Fan that is attached to the rad has never ramped up in speed that I'm aware of and that's even where the temperatures were nearing 80C. Is this okay? The fan is meant to be controlled via 'voltage' now from what I can gather.
    (is the fourth pin used for PWM? There's three wires only on the fan but was wondering what the fourth pin / wire was/would be for - think it's for PWM control as opposed to voltage control however again am not 100% certain).

    I dont know any good places to order from in the UK but from the USA this place is really good

    FrozenCPU.com | 1.877.243.8266 | World's Largest Selection of PC Modification Supplies I get all my Water cooling stuff there.

    Edit- if you wanna get into better modding or better watter cooling and overclocking. look over at XtremeSystems.org

    Be sure you don't have your RAD fan connected to SYS-Fan2 port!

    All other ports should run it at 100% if you set fan control to disable in the BIOS, use voltage if you want it to adjust but if you do that you'll need to connect it to the CPU fan header.

    Yes 4th pin if for PWM function, PWM and 3 pin voltage adjustment is similar it's just how the voltage is regulated to them while adjustments are made is the only difference really.
