Aurora R7, fans revving up and down

My Alienware aurora fans are always revving up and down when I play some games but I don’t know what’s the issue. It looks like it seems to be the front fan.

Re: Alienware aurora r7 fans

Dell uses server grade 5500 RPM AVC fans, if it gets too noisy you can always replace them with quiet fans like the Corsair ML120 Pro.

I used the noctua NF-P12 redux-1700 PWM for my top and front fan but for my top fan it keeps taking me to support assist and saying error top fan.

Re: Alienware aurora r7 fans

Corsair ML120 Pro will clear startup without an error check.  Dell programmed it to check the fans on startup, and it is more particular with the top fan.  But the Corsair ML120 pro (note, must be the pro, and non-LED version, on the R7) is close enough to clear the test.

99.5% sure it will work. Also, any 3-pin fan will work, but will not be modulated.
