Commmander Pro Fan Speed Issue


Recommended Posts

Hi.

 

Been having trouble with fan control within ICUE for quite some time now.

When I select "QUIET" for commander pro, they ramp down to around 1500rpm.

"EXTREME" is fine, they whirl up and everything is good.

 

They should slow down to around 700-900rpm on "QUIET", no?.

 

this does not seem to be adjustable, I have tried reinstalling software, etc, etc.

but to no avail.

 

I have a H150I RGB RGB XT installed running ICUE and the fans are adjustable on presets and ramp down to the correct speed on "QUIET" from within ICUE, but commander pro does not seem to be able to get them below 1450-1500rpm, its like they are set on "BALANCED" but they are not, temps are fine and they shouldnt be running at that speed when set on such a low preset.

 

help!!!!. i want a quiet PC.

 

have attached a photo for proof.

The three default presets are just placeholders and not suitable for most people. They also use CPU temperature as the control variable. That is the only thing every system is guaranteed to have, but it's not a good choice for anything except an actual CPU air cooler. None of your fans need to respond to CPU temperature.

 

You need to make your own fan curve. Performance tab +. Graph will appear below. Since you have a Corsair AIO, using coolant temp as the sensor choice to make a similar curve to the radiator fans is the logical choice, but you could also use GPU temp, motherboard temp, or ideally the temp probes for the Commander to get a rear exhaust air temp. Either way, quick fix is to go to the top right corner of graph. Select the first shape tool that corresponds to the Quiet AIO curve. Make sure you change sensor choice to "H150i XT Temp". Then click all the fans you want to run that curve.

Wow, thats solved it. Thanks!

I`ve now set a Custom Preset named "DESKTOP" which takes them down to around 650rpm.

Im sure on an older ICUE software driver the "QUIET" preset was lower.

its working as I want it to now. Much apreiciated.

 

I will set other Presets for the system fans depending on what im actually using the PC for.

Thanks again.
