How to adjust fan curse based on GPU Temp?

braveheart0707

I am using MSI control center to adjust all my fan's curves, and i think it is linked to CPU temp?

That works fine for CPU intensive works but when I am gaming, the CPU is not THAT hot but the GPU is, so how do I make the fans react to GPU Temp?

Most programs don't let you do that unfortunately. There is a community driven one here on the LTT forum that will allow you to do so as I personally use it and love it.

Ive used Argus as well and liked it. My 3 year key actually just expired about a month ago and I switched over to the fan made one I linked.

Which model specifically?

 

I know my motherboard has certain fan headers that can be set to monitor GPU instead of CPU temps. These can be adjusted in either the BIOS or the software App which is available from Gigabyte’s website.

 

Maybe you can do something similar with your MSI?

 

I’ve actually done this myself recently: Front three intake fans governed by GPU temp, & CPU Cooler, Top exhaust & Rear exhaust governed by CPU temp.

 

I found when gaming, things are quieter as the GPU fans (which are the loudest at high RPM) didn’t need to spin as fast thanks to the extra cool air entering from the front.

 

edit…

This all depends on your case & case fan airflow ability of course, so isn’t guaranteed to work in all scenarios.

FanControl software is quite good for controlling fans for your case and even works for some GPS. You can mix curves base on other temperatures sensors from your CPU/motherboard and GPU curves for your fans.

I’m just curious, with all these Fan Control Apps/software, they can only ’see’ one fan per fan header right? & not each individual fan that may be a part of a daisy chain on that fan header?

 

So if you set a fan curve for a fan header, each fan on that header will mimic each other?

Yes and that has nothing to do with software. The rpm is read on a pin and that pin only connects to 1 fan.
