krsboss Posted October 1, 2010 Share Posted October 1, 2010 Hi, I've recently added an H70 to my system and even with the two 'resistor' connectors, my computer sounds like it's going to take off and that I'm sitting in an aeroplane seat during take-off. Previously I had a Zalman heatsink / fan, which was supremely quiet and actually adjusted rpm with load requirements by the bios CPU Q-fan control on my motherboard. However with the same settings, the fans on the H70 are sitting at a stable 1700 rpm and do not change with load. Is this usual and should I find some other way of toning down the rpm to meet my noise requirements? I haven't changed any motherboard settings for the installation of the H70, it just isn't paying any attention to the Q-fan settings and is very happy at what I presume is max RPM with the additional resistors. I have some spare fan-resistor cables from my Noctua NF-P14 which could probably help quieten it down further, however I see that as a work around rather than addressing the issue! cheers, krs Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
