I recently killed a MSI 780 TwinFrozr in my case (exploding capacitor on the backplate). This might have been just a bad component but I wanted to understand the fan and cooling setup better, can I have some advice?Problem:
When the CPU temps increase the CPU header fans increase with it. Great 😉
When the GPU temps increase I want to ensure the read of the case fans also increase to help the GPU. 😞
I suspect these are not ramping up causing the generally case temperature to increase and compounding the open air cooling of most non-reference GPU (and my new GTX 980 DCII #smug 😮
Can I control my case fans by reference the GPU temps? Can it be done with AI Suite, or do I need other software?
- Maximum Gene VI
- i5-4679k 3.8Ghz OC'ed to 4.2Ghz (moderate, i'm not a OC junkie)
- Corsair 350D case.
- H100i mounted in the top + 2 Corsair SP PWM fans exhausting upwards.
- 3x Corsair SP PWM fans connected to other mobo fan headers set a intakes.
- AI Suite used to auto tuned fans (i have remove Corsair Link, it seems too immature).
It's a little dusty but that can be fixed.
Thanks for any advice.
Oli / Breakfix.
