New build troubleshooting

Use DC for 3 pins.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi everyone, I just finished my first build and I ran into a few problem.

First, I would like my case fans to monitor the GPU temperature and adjust accordingly, as the GPU produces most of the heat in the case. I tried Speed fan and I could not understand the logic behind it. So I went into BIOS to set the fan curve manually, but there are only 3 options: monitor CPU Temp, Monitor motherboard temp, and monitor TcTr1. Does that Tctr1 mean GPU? Also, I have 3-pin fans, so should I select DC mode or PWM mode?

Second, every time I go into bios and set XMP profile to profile 1, which is 3000mhz, the system would not boot when I exit bios. The pc would make a sound that insinuates electronic failures and shut down completely, and it would boot up again, and shut down again until I hit the reset button. then when I go into the ram voltage, the value is highlighted in red and I can't change it to anything over 1.35v. what should do?


any help is good, thanks everyone!
