Default H80i - fan speed won't stay fixed with new graphics card

Hi everyone,

I have the H80i fan/cooler and I've just replaced my graphics card with an Nvidia 980 Ti.

Clearly the 980 Ti is a hot card, and when the temps rise during a game, the H80i fan kicks in and becomes quite loud. I set up and saved a profile in LINK which is supposed to keep the fan fixed at 70% which is quiet enough for me.

However, even with this profile, the H80i overrides my preferences and the fan still kicks in during gameplay. I've looked at the temps, my CPU is about 32°C idle, and goes up to about 42°C in the middle of a video game.

Should I be able to set a preference for a fixed fan speed which never alters, or will I always be overridden regardless? Also, doesn't 42°C seem a bit low for the H80i to start ramping up fan speed?

Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Fixed fan speed should stay fixed.

Are you using an H80i or an H80i GT?

That's unusual. Is the fan set to group with the H80i GT Coolant Temp?

I currently have no groupings at all.

Is it recommended I group the H80i with the coolant temp? And should I also group the graphics card with the graphics card temp?

Thanks again for your help.

Yes it is recommended to group the fan to the coolant temp.

You can also group the GPU fan to the GPU temp but whether LINK will control/adjust the fans is either it will or will not work.
