What should my fan curves be?

I have an i5-9600k and an RTX 2070 ROG Strix.
What should my fan curves be for my computer?
I have 3 Corsair LL120's on the front of my case, and a Hydro Series H75 for my CPU cooler (i know it's liquid but this is about fans)

I noticed this post talking about it, but it's also a few years old and for a 3 gen older CPU (air cooled) and 2-3 gen older GPU.

Thanks.



EDIT: This is what I have it at - think this is good?

it is entirely personal preference based on noise and how comfortable you are with the temps under load

Judge the product by its own merits, not by the Company that created it.

I'm a fan of always running my fans at the fastest my ears will tolerate.  So if you can tolerate 1500 RPM constantly then I'd run that.

I can tolerate some noise, but silent is better. Looks like my PC idles at 40C  (i have ~10 tabs open, discord, and a few mobo/gpu configs open)

Only way to find what works is to test it. Some like linear curves, other use logaritmic. Or you could use steps. Its really personal. In short:

  • Linear = Straigth line starting from idle temp and lowest speed possible to highest speed you like and cut-off point where CPU is usually under load (for example 75C).
  • Logarithmic = Same start and end points, but curve steepens at the higher temp side. You picture is of logarithmic.
  • Steppes = Can be good if you have 3pin fans. Static fan speed until certain temp is reached and them speed jumps to next level.

I personally use linear and steppes at the moment. I just posted these in another thread:
