For any one who is familiar with Asus MB Q-fan control, do you know how it works. Here is my problem, I am trying to enable bios Asus Q-fan control so that the fan can be quiet at idle and increase rpm on load.
However, the problem is the fan seems to stay very low and never crank up even my core temperature is higher than 65 degree. It is just like under volt the fan permanently. Also, my MB (Asus Commando) also have an optional fan Q-fan control but have the same problem. The problem makes the Q-fan function useless to me.
I suspect it is because Asus set the Q-fan control based on CPU temperature instead of the core temperature, my CPU temp is generally 15 C lower than core temperature, so even if my core temp goes to nearly 70 degree, the MB thinks there is no need to speed the fan up?
