Hi folks

updated to the latest icue like 2 days ago. and now the fans goes on like full power. ive tried to adjust the settings with a custom profile but it dont seem to work. 1st fan is like 2600rpm and the 2nd is like just above 1900rpm. temp reaches just barely 60c. but then like after 5-10min it slows down to 1680rpm and temp is just below 40c. before the update i NEVER ever heard the fans.

 

What can i do to resolve this. currently im neither gaming or running heavy graphic apps(if porn doesnt count to that :eek:)

 

thanks in advance.

p.s my system is in the profile.

In your screen shot, the custom profile (cooling mode) is not applied, if you meant to do so. After you click the profile, it will highlight yellow. Then you need to click each fan you want to apply it to. They will get a yellow outline to show they are on that program. Common error and it is somewhat the opposite of how most people expect it to work.

 

The second entry is the pump and you can only use the low/high speed setting from the presets. Quiet/Balanced/Extreme has a completely different meaning for the pump then it does for the fans. The H80i v2 has one fan control channel for both of its fans and will show as 1 fan -- just like when on a splitter.

 

I believe 45C is the forced max fan speed trigger point on the H80i v2. It's a safety bit built into the default profiles. Sometimes is acts a bit strange as you pass over and back across the threshold. The Quiet profile can misbehave at times as well. This should not happen on the custom profiles and that is what I recommend you use. You can copy the quiet profile or make your own, but it works best when designed for your conditions. There is a temperature floor (your ambient case temp) you can't go below. The presets are just that and have no idea about your case temp. Set some low fan speeds for the normal operating temperature at the desktop level. Then something you can live with +5-10C further on.

 

Your coolant temp is a bit on the warm side for no load. You may want to describe the physical set-up, location, etc. and find a reason for this.

Yes, that's right. It's a bit counter-intuitive with the click the left side first, then click all the fans on the right you want it applied to. The first few months I consistently was trying to do the opposite thing all the time. However, once you get yourself adjusted, it makes it much easier to change multiple fans that run from the same curve.
