    Gigabyte x58 ud5 fan control problems

    Hi,

    I have a Gigabyte x58 ud5 which is giving me a few hassle. I can't get the CPU fan to slow down. It rotates at max speed all the time. It's set to enabled & auto in the bios. I tried with both the Intel stock cooler and an Akasa Nero 967.

    Any body got trouble with it or know how to make it work?

    Thanks

    Yannick

    ... You do realise that changing the fan will do nothing to adjust the RPM?

    To the OP, have you tried installing a software fan controler and adjusting the speeds manually, the "auto" functions on the BIOS tend to be very... erm... well not working.

    Re: Gigabyte x58 ud5 fan control problems

    nightkhaos >> what I meant is ... I spoke to Gigabyte technical support about the problem and all they said was perhaps the fan wasn't implementing Intel PWM specification correctly, but I tried two Intel OEM cpu coolers, another two generic fans and in the end left in my titan fenrir, this was all a might pain having to clean off and reapply the paste everytime :-(

    what s/w would you recommend trying?

    What's interesting is during the post the fan starts up at ~600rpm then part way through it goes to max 2200- 2300rpm and stays there, all the other fans I have are Scythe and very quiet but my system is annoyingly noisy because of the cpu fan.

    I've also tried pwm fans on the other 4 pin headers with no success.

    Is it possible you plugged the fan into the wrong port? Remember, the motherboard is designed to support multiple fans, CPU and case fans. It is possible the fan on your CPU is not plugged into one of the ports meet to be used by the CPU fan.

    nk > yeah definitely the one that says CPU right next to it ;-) appreciate however how many people probably do connect them to any old header

    Hmm.... Well i still think a software controler is the best idea. That way you get more control over the fan speeds, and some software implementations allow you to link a certein fan speed with a certien temp (and if they don't, they should!).

    Re: Gigabyte x58 ud5 fan control problems

    Sorry about the late reply. Yes Gigabyte tech support emailed me a F8c (beta?) firmware that enabled fan control both automatically by the BIOS or via software.

    Note that I was unable to control fan speed with the Gigabyte Easytune utility either. After flashing with F8c firmware, I was then able to control with Easytune too.

    Re: Gigabyte x58 ud5 fan control problems

    I've only ever had one gigabyte board of the 4/5 i've owned adjust fan speed automatically which is my cheap and cheerful EP31-DS3L, I don't think they implement it on their higher end boards (though I could be wrong) - I just go for a hardware 5.25" bay fan controller. I don't need one with 4-pin PWM ports because I don't have any fans that use PWM.

    Re: Gigabyte x58 ud5 fan control problems

    A good to know, I've just built two systems around these boards, the one for the rack isn't a problem because I normally crank up all the fans speeds to max for these graphics servers, but the office photoshop machine is making far to much noise!
