CPU Fans Take Off for No Reason

I made a similar post on this subject but, probably in the wrong place.  So here's the story.  New build, W790e Sage MB, Strix RTX4090 OC.  Unfortunately, I'm one of those impatient people who does what he shouldn't.  This is to say, I tried removing Armoury Crate with Windows and not the Asus software.  Reinstalled it and at least once a day and sometimes twice, my cpu fans took off to 100% for no reason (not gaming, running cool).  This is water cooling, three fans on a splitter (I changed the cable to see if it was a problem).  Well, Armoury Crate thereafter crashed.  Tried to remove it with Asus software but, it failed.  So, I reloaded Win 11.  Things went well and I wanted to wait two days before I put GPU Tweak on the system.  Went about 36 hours then put it on.  Today (the next day) I'm logged on as a user, and it sounds like the CPU fans are talking of, although, not full tilt jet engine like I was hearing.  So I logged out quickly and logged in as an Admin.  The minute I click Amoury Crate, the fans die down.  So, I can't prove a thing.  I've set Armourt Crate to logging but, wouldn't know if it logs after logging out as administrator.  So, if anyone has some thoughts ...    Thanks.

Hello m_crazy

Have you run the Auto Tuning feature in Fan Xpert?

Yes I Have.  I'm back on the forum because it happened again.  This time when I logged into the Admin account, the fans slowed down before I could even click Armoury Crate.  I'm also wondering if its the same fans this time.  Sounds more like the VRM fans than the CPU fans but, the case is buttoned up and I'm not sure.  I shut off the log function.  I know not where it is but, if someone wants it?  And one last thought.  I couldn't say for sure if this only happenes as a user.

A solution or partial solution.  Not sure yet.  Had an issue were Chrome crashed the default app page.  As part of the solution, my user account was changed to an Admin but, was subsequently changed back.  Well, its going on three days and my fan problem has only happened once.  And that was when I went into my Admin account to check Armoury Crate.  I looked like the fan didn't speed up until I opened AC.  And a piece of advice for all listening.  Don't be in a hurry to open AC after logging into Admin account.  It will start saying all kinds of stuff: "need sign in permission";  "downloading peripheral"; and "I'm broke and you need to remove me".  Shut it down, wait then start it again and everything will be fine.  And a suggestion for the two apps requiring Admin permission when logging into user account.  Switching user account to Admin and back again will solve that also.  As long as you put your pc to sleep, it lasts but, rebooting will bring it back.

So Nate, are you an Asus employee?  Because clearly, Asus has no respect for your computer's security.  For example, telling people to turn off memory core security to Use their AI Tuner.  So, my problem is back with a vengeance.  Poked around on the forum and found someone talking about standby issues.  If only if it was that simple.  It was said, "did you check the event viewer?"  Duh, no I didn't but, I subsequently did.  I found an arm's length list of errors, warnings and crashes.  Tweak and Crate are listed but, that doesn't prove anything.  This will be a long slog to figure out.

 No, I'm not an ASUS employee, just a volunteer moderator.

All I can say is, Armoury Crate is not meant to work under a standard account, I have no control over this.

You don't have to use the AI Overclocking feature to overclock your cpu, you can overclock your cpu manually in the bios as I do.

I don't think it's much of a concern if Microsoft gives you the option to turn off memory integrity for better gaming performance. They do say the device "may" be vulnerable to threats, but if it was that bad, they wouldn't say to turn it off at all.
