Intel QST?

Post by Copyright » Sun Sep 16, 2007 4:42 pm

I have a P180, Gigabyte P35-DS3R, and Zalman 9700 in a setup I just built. The cpu fan ramps up high and loud when under load. Is there any way to get this quieter? The motherboard has an option in bios for Intel QST... is that any better then Legacy option? Im about to add a kama bay to the case also as I am sure the 2x120mm rear exhaust fans are being starved for air becuase of the single 120mm feeding it to them. I had also thought about using a slot fan speed adjuster that I can hook up inline with the motherboards CPU fan header. I can adjust it so the max rpm of the fan is not so high and of course will watch my temps. Thanks for any advice on this!

What temps are you getting? You can probably adjust the boundaries of when the CPU fan kicks into maximum. Mine happens to be done in BIOS.

Are you overclocking? If you are, stop that.

Stop overclocking? LOL. Its running at stock voltage overclocked. The temps between stock clock and overclock are minimal. The temps arent that bad its just a loud fan to begin with. I dont see anywhere in bios to adjust the fan settings. My abit board has tons of adjustment but this Gigabyte board does not.
