i just built my first ever pc and now the r5 3600 stock cooler is making me mad cause it goes up and down in rpm constantly, currently i am sat in my bios and looking up stuff on my phone so forgive me typos, now setting up my all my fans:
-whats a pwm
-how low can fans go
-how low is healthy for a fan
now those are all googable questions yes, but in combination with how the fan looks in the end is whats troubling me.
currently i got my rear exhaust fan set to pwm: 20% @ 10c
20% @ 45c
(flat so it has constant noise while idle)
40% @ 70c
100% @ 85c
fan is a noctua nf a14 industrialPPC-3000 pwm, cause bigger numbers are better right? :^)
now is that set proper, is the idea behind it right, was this fan a mistake cause it cant go as low or am i missing something that could make it go lower?
theres not alot of videos on this as its probably very intuitive to the seasoned builder, everyone just says set a curve, not how to set one
final question: am i overthinking this already?
