plc_debug folder in root

Hi all,

Not sure if this is anything to do with icue but since installing H150i the above folder keeps being created in root on boot with a file of the same name.

The contents of the file are pasted below which appear to be polling system fans etc hence my wondering if its icue but guess it also be armoury crate.

Anyways if anyone can give me any pointers it would be appreciated.

Hello, i dont currently have any icue products, im only using a few pwm corsair fans plugged to my TRX40E Asus motherboard which fans are managed by armoury crate or AI suite 3, but i have the same issue as you with this folder and debug log for fans, that keep going to be created each 1/2 days....

I was having this no matter using only armoury crate or using armoury crate and AIsuite3

As we experience the same bug with differents material, i think this is related to windows 11 last updates and his interaction with fans managers (as your post is the only mention of that "plc_debug" term i have found on the whole internet, now i feel better to know that im not the only one experiencing this... but still sorry for you)

my plc_debug :

hI,

Thanks for letting me know.

I have not yet moved too Win 11 so that's not issue but I am running Armoury Crate although using just the CPU fan header with the tach wire to commander core but all fans are controlled by icue.

I will see if anyone has seen this on the ASUS ROG forums now as that seems like the culprit.

Hum yeah more likely an rog issue so

Now i remember that on one of my previous system reset tests, i was also having a persistent instant freeze when trying to use the "tuning" auto detect in Fan Expert (in AI Suite3), the tool that detect and adjust fan speeds, my screen wqas freezing near the end of the autodetection

But after another reinstall i had succeed pass the tuning, so i feel like asus softwares are really unstable

Do you also have problems with sonic studio 3? My sound card work, but i cant use the effects, equaliser and smart volume on sonic studio...

i have done 3 full reset in the last weeks for various tests, and each time i suceed make sonic studio work, but only for a light time, after a once, it become break, and reinstalling it will not fix the problem

No , I have the Realtek drivers loaded but not SS3 as I don't use the onboard audio. I have Corsair Virtuoso SE's / Logitech G560's which are both USB so no need.

Think its fairly safe to say this is something to do with Armoury crate , I will get round to ROG forum in next few days and check.

Windows 11 Pro w/ AI Suite 3 - Past few days I noticed the plc_debug folder in root "C" drive and also AI suite delayed and fans running high for about 90 seconds after desktop.  Here is how I resolved both issues:  

C:\Program Files (x86)\ASUS\AsusFanControlService you will notice several folders as the service updated recently.

Open Registry editor:

Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\ASUS\AsusFanService

Right click on path to modify to previous folder update:   C:\Program Files (x86)\ASUS\AsusFanControlService\2.01.13 to the (Older updated in 2021)

Other Work Around - (I actually deleted the (2) newest folder updates and renamed the last one updated in 2021 to 2.01.13)

GOOD LUCK - HOPE THIS HELPS!!!
