    Meeena reacted to Rem0o in FanControl, my take on a SpeedFan replacement   
    Version updated date: 08/03/2021
    Current update version: 78
    Main program
    Direct Download
    HwInfo sensors plugin
    Dell laptops plugin
    To run at startup: Use the new "Start with Windows" option in the left hamburger menu



    I built a new custom UI on top of OpenHardwareMonitor with additional features, mainly linear fan curves with custom temperature sources.

    As you guys may know, SpeedFan is sadly not updated anymore, so newer boards are not detected properly. 
    The main feature I used was the custom fan curves with custom temperature sources. I used it to bind my case fans speed to the hottest component of my PC, my GPU. 
    (My BIOS only supports CPU temperature as a temperature source for the PWM fans).
    I searched around for an alternative software with this particular feature and only found a paid option (Angus Monitor).
    However, I also came around this:

    The first link is an original project which could be downloaded here https://openhardwaremonitor.org/, but just like SpeedFan, the project is not updated anymore.
    However, thanks to the code base being open sourced, there are a couple of active branches, LibreHardwareMonitor being the best one I found, supporting my MSI Z390 Edge AC board and being updated regularly.
    OpenHardwareMonitor is divided into two parts, an API to interact with your hardware ( CPU, RAM, Fans... ) and a UI. The existing UI is a HWMonitor clone that allows to set a manual fan speed to any fan, but no temperature/speed fan curve here.
    ( sigh )
    So I decided to make my own lightweight application with the OpenHardwareMonitorLib API, and here is what I got so far...        
    Current features:
    OTA update Multi-config support with quick-switch from tray icon Dark/light mode + colors Graph fan curves Linear fan curves Flat fan curves Mixed fan curves Sync fan curves Custom name for each fan / curve / control Material UI ( thanks to http://materialdesigninxaml.net/ ) Smooth fan speed transitions Custom temperature source Automatic or manual matching between your controls and fan speeds Activation% (dead zone) for each fan Saves your current configuration and reload it on startup Board support is updated whenever the API gets an update!  
    Please note that this is a small personal project. It works great for my needs but I didn't test it on a hundred different motherboards. Take it as it is. If it works on your current setup, well you got your fan control situation sorted at least until you change your motherboard!
    If you want to help me out a bit or give me feedback, I included some links/button in the left hamburger menu out of the way to send me an email
    or to pay me a 🍺 ... or 🍺🍺🍺.
    I will also keep an eye on this thread to see how it goes.

    That seems like a lot of work to counterfeit some thermal paste.  Probably just the site, or the contest was closed.  If you follow the links you'll find contact info.

    From what you've said, thermals are OK so..... I don't believe you have an issue to worry over with the paste itself.
    Can you post a pic of the tube of TIM you have?

    you should follow up with the retailer (where did you buy this from?) and with arctic customer service, have your proof of purchase on hand. I'm sure if there's a large distributor handling illegitimate product they'd like to know about it.
    If there's a mixup and it is legitimate, they might provide you with a new QR code.

    Meeena reacted to Haro in Motherboard VRM Tier List v2 (currently AMD only)   
    Same as the B550 Aorus Pro (ATX)/ Aorus Pro AC (ATX), so tier S.

    Meeena reacted to Haro in Need some help choosing a Motherboard   
    The old Aours Pro just had 12 SIC651 50A power stages doubled with the ISL6617A doubelers, now with the new Aorus Pro, instead of having a doubled 12 phase, they have a 6 phase with 2 SIC651 50A stages per phase (Due to several reasons), this makes basically no difference in VRM performance and both will perform the same in that regard.

    It has been affecting some other boards, the ones I can think of off the top of my head are the Strix B550-E; but there are some issues with the AC board, potentially the AX. There are some problems with the Wi-Fi and/or the Bluetooth cutting out. There are also some USB issues (either all the USBs or the top USBs that are controlled by the CPU); some people have had these issues fixed in recent BIOS revisions such as F12, but others haven't and those using newer pcie cards like RTX 3000 have had to disable global c-states in BIOS and set pcie gen to 3.0 to solve the USB issues.
    I currently have one of the USB issues (when I stream mhw my top USBs freak out).
    On the other hand, I have been running the Pro AC for almost 2 months now with a 5600x, 3600 c16 ram and a 3060ti and, apart from the USB issue, is running just fine. I haven't updated my bios yet as I don't want to bring on other issues and am waiting for others to try it-but that's probably just me worrying lol.

    Looks fine, but 5600XTS are almost certainly not coming back in stock (even for 50 over msrp), this has a bad PSU, and this is a U.S build. Market doesn’t apply to him at all due to him being in Egypt
