by default it's set to run between 30-50% depending on the manufacture, all of them have implemented silent mode options which can be turned on in bios. not sure what the threshold is for the different manufactures but gigabytes is 70C before it'll go to 30% which you'll never hit unless you put a hair dryer directly on it.I would like some input from owners of different MBs.
Does the little onboard fan make noise and when and how much?
Some of us have had many mobos with chipset fans going back many years.I wonder how all the other many, many motherboards that don't have a chipset fan manage to keep on keeping on year after year
AMD's fault on this one since they designed X570 in-house, and the consensus seems to be that it won't temperature throttle in some edge-cases. ASMedia is doing the next, so who knows if it'll be necessary for that one.I wonder how all the other many, many motherboards that don't have a chipset fan manage to keep on keeping on year after year
that's been my main concern...not the noise level but the shelf life of the fan...my current motherboard is 10 years old...can I realistically expect an X570 board chipset fan to last that long (extreme example)Those small fans can sound like an angry bee and can get much worse as the bearings fail.
It is a valid concern
