i'm not sure if this forum, or cooling cpus, or fan and control is best but...
as a silent pc enthusiast, i decided (reluctantly) to add fans back b/c the PSU gets extremely hot to touch, and i plan to use speedfan to spin down the fans, using the 3-wire connection and 3-wire fan.
it does work, but when i 1- exit the program or 2- turn off the computer and restart or 3- when my overclocked pc reboots spontaneous
silentfan, which i have to start at launch, does not save the settings.
i have used speedfan to manually set it to slowest setting, 5% on the control panel. i do not know what "automatic varieted" means, but checking that box does not make much difference, either with fan speed or saving settings. i do not know if temperature settings make much difference.
what i would like to do is set the setting to 5% RPM, and have it "save" when windows loads up at boottime so fans spin at a virtually inaudible 5% of maximum speed.
