Re: XPS 730 - Nvidia System Tools, and "Front CPU Fan" VS "CPU Cooling" any ideas?
I have a 730 and I can control:
- Front CPU Fan (changing this slider doesn't seem to have any effect, just like you said. I think there might be a unused fan connector on the mainboard)
- Rear CPU Fan
- PCI Cage Fan
- HDD Fan
Under the CPU tab I can also change the front fan values from 0% to 100%. I always kept it at 0% and it doesn't seem to come on automatically.
I have the latest drivers, bios and ESA-firmware and I'm running Vista 64bit Ultimate. I've also tried Vista 32bit Premium but everything was the same.
Since you're experiencing the exact same issues, I think we're both fine and it's supposed to be like that.
This is not concerning your issues but might also be of interest to you: I spoke with XPS support this morning about the CPU pump value in nVidia system monitor under the chassis tab being always at 100% and he also told me that was normal and it cannot be overridden or set to any other value in any way.
I hope that helps,
