Searched a bit for other topics on the same problem but could not find any. My apologies in advance if this is has been discussed in the past.
NZXT Kraken X62 and Asus maximus X HERO
Kraken X62 USB is plugged into a USB header on the MB.
Kraken X62 AIO plug in plugged into AIO header on MB
The two radiator fans are plugged in CPU_FAN and CPU_OPT
The problem is if I cut the power via the PSU power button, at next boot the AIO pump will work in silent mode (low rpm).
I have to start CAM software to make the pump operate at full speed. If I do not cut the power from the PSU, the pump will retain it's settings.
At least for my build, the pump speed makes quite a difference in CPU temperatures so I would like to run it at full speed all the time without CAM.
I am not 100% sure if Kraken X62 pump can be controlled via the AIO pump header on the MB or only via the USB header, but the rpm readings from the MB are a bit strange. Might be the reason why the pump does not run at full speed after a a PSU shutdown?
In BIOS I set the AIO pump to run at 100%.Values after I start CAM once and I do not cut the power from PSU
BIOS show 5500+ rpm while the max speed of the pump is ~2.700 rpm
HWInfo shows ~2.700 rpm
Ai Suite also shows 5500+ rpm
BIOS values after I cut the power from PSU.
Pump is in silence mode now (~1200 rpm), but BIOS shows it is running close to max rpm.
