can I push my new RGB fans faster than what they already do?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I recently bough an inexpensive 6 pack of fans and I want to know is there anyway I could push them to go faster. Here is the amazon link to them https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B079JDKSZL/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1. I would like to know if there is anything I can do to push them past 1000 rpm. the temps I was getting before the fans were install was close to 80 Degress C but now it doesn't really go above 65 C.

 

My build is

AMD FX-8300

16 GB of DDR3 RAM

RX 560 4GB Aero OC

then why need more fan speed?


Studying abroad, ditched the crappy laptop for a mobile workstation/gaming laptop double WITH CRAPPY THERMAL PASTE THAT 1/2 THE CINEBENCH SCORE

Model: HP Omen 17 17-an110ca CPU: i7-8750H (0.125V undervolt) GPU: GTX 1060 6GB Mobile (1700MHz 0.812V) RAM: 12GB DDR4-2666 CL19 (timings are so loose, might as well have lower frequency). Storage: 128GB Toshiba NVMe SSD (KBG30ZMV128G) + 1TB Seagate 7200RPM 2.5" HDD (ST1000LM049-2GH172) Monitor: 1080p 120Hz IPS G-sync

 

The best thing to do is reading the clock speed that doesnt end in a pair of zeros. Software voltage readings are wrong if your motherboard's not a high end model

CPU: i7-2600K 4493MHz (multiplier: 43x) 1.35V (software) --> 1.4V at the back of the socket Motherboard: Asrock Z77 Extreme4 (BCLK: 104.5MHz) CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D15 RAM: Adata XPG 2x8GB DDR3 (XMP: 10-11-11-30 2T 2133MHz, custom: 10-11-10-30 1T 2229MHz) GPU: Asus GTX 1070 Dual SSD: Samsung 840 Pro 256GB (main boot drive), Transcend SSD370 128GB PSU: Seasonic X-660 80+ Gold Case: Antec P110 Silent, 5 intakes 2 exhausts Monitor: AOC G2460PF 1080p 144Hz (OC'd 150Hz) TN Keyboard: Logitech G610 Orion (Cherry MX Blue) with SteelSeries Apex M260 keycaps Mouse: BenQ Zowie FK1

I'm sure you could, but considering you said they were cheap I don't see it ending well. Also why do you want them to go faster? what is the aim/focus for doing so??

You will need to get a separate power supply that can output more than 12V.

well even with using all 6 strategically and using furmarks cpu burner and setting the # of threads to 64 CPUID HWMointer says that my CPU package isn't even exceeding 70C

You can't overvolt fans with consumer grade hardware. Like Enderman said, you need external power source for that. If you want them to be 100% all the time, then connect all directly to PSU.

Oh dear,,, what app are you using to measure your temps.... because FX chips don't measure temps like intel they use an algorithm. FX is a hot chip so if you're using a poor cooler it will overpower it quickly.

They are connected directly to the PSU via a molex pass through

what the hottest my fx-8300 should ever get before i really need to worry about heat because i have done a stress test of my cpu and the highest it's ever hit was 79C

Molex is up to 12V.

Optimal temp is 65C, over 75C is overheating. It's different architecture from Ryzen and Intel chips, so you can't compare temps. Plus FX-series uses different way to monitor temps, meaning that you probably have lower temps than what you are actually seeing.

According to spec list, they can go up to 1300 RPM by using the controller, so why not do that?

how much lower would you guest it is from from CPUID's HWMonitrer is telling me

I haven't owned FX series AMD, so I'm not sure how it works in reality. AMD's own software, Overdrive, should show about correct temps as explained in:

 

Post screenshot of HWmonitor, its easier to guess when we can see all the values.

If fan is connected directly to PSU, it will run at full speed. Which with molex connector is 12V (pins are GND, 5V, 7V, 12V; maybe not in that order).

Use HWInfo64, There are different temps to consider, the CPU is soldered but the socket shouldn't exceed 82c, can't remember why as I've forgotten more about the FX cpu and overclocking than most know in this forum. You need a big beefy cooler or 360mm AIO. I did a custom loop in the end to keep my 8350 pinned at 5ghz, I also used a fan at the back of my cpu socket to reduce temps a further 5c. I suggest getting proper information for the FX from this forum here.
https://www.overclock.net/forum/10-amd-cpus/1318995-official-fx-8320-fx-8350-vishera-owners-club.html

The knowledge in that group will far exceed the knowledge here. When FX was out this forum was heavily Intel biased due to the ease of use and well, the intels at the time were much stronger.

Yeah... you can already see that temps aren't what they seem to be. Min is what system boots to. So 35C or around that. If we say actual temps are 35-75C, your max is about 50-60C and current maybe 45C.
