without doing something that will void the warranty of the cooler, such as cutting the PWM wire... I just don't like the spin up/spin down of my ac freezer..

nvm lock and/or delete this, I remembered I got a BIOS setting that looks like
CPU fan 100% if CPU TEMP > x*C

u could on my mobo not as i could imagine a situation i would want to.. each to his own thow.. i have max and min setting.. max wants to be high-ish or way above your idle temps..

min wants to be noticeably lower than max.. its having them too close together that causes the constantly changing fan speeds..


if u really want it going going flat out all the time.. set the max very low at the idle temp.. .. and the min the same.. anyways u should have the idea... he he
