Ryzen owners ? have any problems with fan/s control ??

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Built a 3600 and MSI b450m mortar max system over the weekend , and have noticed that i don't have any "real" control over my fans

even setting a fan curve in the BIOS has no real effect as to how their should be responding !
PWM set to all sys fans in the BIOS , but only seem to be spinning at half speed ( i know they'll go faster - same case and fans as my last rig )


anyone else noticed that they fans ain't doing what they should be doing ?

MSI commander pro , seems to work ( but after a restart i have readjust them to were i want them again ( which isn't convenient at all )
speedfan - doesn't work ( too out dated )

I dont thinks its a CPU, but rather a mainboard problem.

 

Maybe try to reflash the BIOS and see if that fixes it. That worked for me on a ASUS X470 Prime board which also had some problems

PWM all to all sys fans in the BIOS

So are you sure they're PWM but not DC ?


Tag or quote me so i see your reply

Yes all set to PWM , 

 

Even if i set them back to default  , their only running at about 40/50% at best under load 

 

might try and flash  back to the previous BIOS    see if that makes any difference ..

I actually have the same problem on an Asus mobo, just DC controlled fans, but I didn't bother doing anything with it because temp was good enough. (I know higher rpm case fans would probably have caused lower rpm GPU/CPU fan, but I did bother).

 

And at this point I am soon upgrading anyway.

Is that b450 MAX ( or standard b450 ) mobo  ? 

 

Might return this one and pick up a b450 ( none MAX and not MSI ) and just do the bios update on it , too get it to work with the 3600

This is a motherboard issue AGESA has ZERO control over fan speed

Is this issue with "all" b450 mobo or just MSI's ? 

 

is there a fix for my  MSI mobo ? ( work around ?)

A couple of things first is it plugged into the 4 pin fan connector and is it a PWM fan? 

 

Also make sure you have the most up to date bios. Chipset has nothing to do with the fan speeds it's either not a PWM fan or its on a 3pin fan connector or its a bios issue that is specific to that bios

Is it overheating? Until that happens the fans will stay at a low speed.

I'm currently using a Gigabyte B450 ITX and it doesn't hesitate to ramp up the fans when needed. 

I only have 2 headers on mine - CPU & system_fan. CPU is of course set to cool itself, but System is set to piggy-back the CPU temps. (Only other options are manual, chipset & full)

So my entire chassis will spin up when the CPU passes 60°c. 

(Currently waiting for a low profile cooler to replace the Wraith Spire)

Nah, it's not, I have a i5 3570k :P, so can't help you.

Yes all fans are plugged in to the 4 pin fan headers , ( how ever their connected with a splitter)  two to the sys fan 1 and two to the sys fan 2 

fans are the corsair sp120 PWM's 

 

yes the bios is the latest from MSI ..

No not over heating  ,but even while under load the CPU will reach 85+c running aida64 the fans will not increase at all  !!

surely their should increase ? 

 

making a fan curve in the BIOS makes no difference at all .

 

thats what im trying to do , ( low speed while idling  and ramp up while gaming above  50c )
