Apologies for the late reply, work, work and more work atm  :(

 

Wise decision waiting on replacing the PSU. replies #5 and #6 do suggest that the PSU is ok.

 

Good work on your behalf btw  :thumbsup:

No worries. The CPU fan, though is humming along, is staying at 1900 RPMs regardless of CPU temp. I may try a BIOS settings reset to see if that will make it become dynamic.

Do you have a link to the type of CPU fan that you are now using so we can take a look at its specs.

No display problems yet, though I haven't been on twitch much.

 

CPU Fan is still an issue (speed wise). I tried to enable Q Control on my motherboard but it just boots to a CPU Fan Error (still spinning). So right now the only way I can make it not go max speed 24/7 is manually lowering it.

Good news that no further screen issues and long may that continue.

 

ASUS fan control software has complaints about it far and wide on Google  :( I did however find some info that you may find helpful, see the reply of dangernat here

This was in BIOS. I don't have ASUS Fan Xpert installed.

That maybe explains why the CPU fan will only run at 100% unless you manually drop it down, just read up on Qfan and one post said that it can be enabled in the BIOS or within AI Suite, not sure if that means that some boards you need to install AI to be able to enable it though  :headscratch:

 

Is the fan connected to the MB header next to the 8 pin EATX socket.

CPU Fan is plugged into the 4 pin CPU_FAN connection on the motherboard, which is next to the 8PIN power connection.

Aye noted that in your reply #36 and incorrectly thought that you had AI installed, I read the ASUS FAQ here and it says that the error can occur if you change the CPU cooling fan.

 

If the fan issue is bugging you why not try the AI software which you can download from here

AI Software works. Not clear on if I need to launch the program whenever I restart or if configuring it once will take care of it until I need to make changes again.

If I recall correctly the settings remain and you only need to check on and possibly adjust them every once in a while.
