Sorry to bump an older thread, but reading through the thread, is this image correct? No front fan control... Only Rear CPU, PCI cage and HD can be adjusted? Also can any one confirm ... See more...
Sorry to bump an older thread, but reading through the thread, is this image correct? No front fan control... Only Rear CPU, PCI cage and HD can be adjusted? Also can any one confirm that my core temps of (core 1  52C core 2 51C core 3 53C core 4 48C) are ok, they seem a little high for a H2C. The "cpu" temp from everest reads 26C which would be fine, but the cores are much higher, is this normal? Many thanks for any answers.   All your temps are fine. The cores in Everest are always higher than the cpu reading. In xps thermal monitor there's also no front fan control. You can set it in nvidia control panel but it doesn't seem to do anything. Another thing I always wondered is why the pump speed in nvidia monitor (chassis tab, bottom right) is always at 100% even when the cpu is without any heavy workload. I overclocked the cpu in BIOS to 4Ghz and ran a stress test and the pump is indeed speeding up as the temperatures begin to rise. The nvidia monitor pump speed reading always stays the same. I think it's a software issue. The H2C does an amazing job at keeping the cpu cool. It is true that when the cpu isn't under much load that the temps seem similar to good air cooler but when your overclocking and the pump speeds up, your temps begin to drop dramatically. If you want to feel the second cooling stage (TEC cooling unit) kicking in: 1. Overclock your cpu (4Ghz is fine) 2. Go into nvidia control panel and put the cpu cooling slider to 100% 3. Now run a stress test for a few minutes 4. Turn of the stress test and touch the metal tubing part of your H2C. It is getting cooler than ambient temp.   Hope that helps a bit, Chris
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 C... See more...
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, Chris
My H2C pump speed is also at 100%. You can monitor your pump speed with the Nvidia System Monitor. Click on the pc case in nvidia system monitor and the cpu pump speed is on the bottom right.
