HardCodedCoder Posted June 10, 2022 Share Posted June 10, 2022 (edited) Hello everybody 😀, first of all: this is my first post here and I hope I'm doing nothing wrong and selected the correct Sub to post my problem. If I'm doing something wrong please don't hesitate telling me 😁 I researched a lot now also through this forum and tried to set up a custom fan curve and I need to say: I read so much that I'm currently more confused than anything else. I need to admit, that I'm not a pro when it comes to this, so I would really appreciate to get some help here, as I'm currently really desperate as I don't know what to do. MY SETUP: In my profile I already filled out my hardware components under "Gaming PC". There you can see my hardware: My Fan Setup: In total, i have: 6 Case Fans (Corsair QL) 3 AIO FANs (CORSAIR ML which came with my Corsair ICUE H150i ELITE CAPELLIX) 1x Commander Pro (6 QL Fans attached to it) 1x Commander Core (3 ML Fans attached to it) NOTE: I'm using a Push and Pull Setup, this means: I have 3 Fans at the front of my Case (QL Fans) than the radiator behind and after the radiator 3 ML Fans (so 6 Fans attached to the radiator). I use my pc in the living room plugged in into my LG 4k TV and I'm sitting on the couch using a Headset playing demanding games like RDR2, Control..., but also streaming my console gaming using the capture card where i simply stream via Discord and use OBS. ATTACHMENT: I attached 4 Files to this post: Icue Commander Curve: shows my custom created fan curve using the Cooleant temperature as base (Controlling all 6 QL Fans) Icue Elite Capellix: shows my custom created fan fan curve using the Cooleant temperature as base (Controlling all 3 ML Fans) ICue Dashboard: Showing a benchmark running RDR2 in the backround using my custom fan curves ICue Dashboard Intensive: Showing a benchmark running RDR2 in the backround using the Intensive Preset. What is the problem: In ICue there are three presets: Quiet Balanced Intensive All of them make a very loud noise during Gaming. If you are Gaming and you can hear the fans through the Headset and the gaming audio, then this is really annoying. The Quiet preset is okayish from noise point of view, the only issue is that on normal tasks and idle the fans keep ramping up a bit and slowing down the whole time, so you can always here this annoying sound this makes when accelerating the fans and slowing them down again. (And as far as I also read in the forum in other threads here I learned this is the worst case scenario). Balanced and Intensive are making always a lot of noise -> I decided to make an own curve, BUT: I performed a gaming benchmark using Red Dead Redemption running in the Background cranked it up to max Settings and what is worrying me are the temp differences: On my custom curve I can see a temperature difference (comparing to the intense preset) of 6 Degrees (maybe more if would have run an hour (check the two Dashboard pictures)). What is worrying me are the temps in general and also of the DRAM. Browsing through the forum I read that people have something aroung 50-60. Which temperatures are okay? What should I do because of the noise which is bugging me? Which temperatures are unhealthy for my system? Could anybody maybe help me create a fun curve where I simply finally can relax and enjoy gaming because I can trust that this is a good curve? As already said: Im not an expert and far away from that and while playing im constantly checking temps and to be honest: This takes the fun out of it. I'm worrying that I'm damaging my system but on the other hand using the intense preset is not acceptable as it is as loud as on an airport. I simply would like to get assistance in creating the perfect fan curve for my specific setup and situation. This would be really kind 🙂 Thank you in advance for your time and help!
