I have issue with my fans revving up and down I change my fan set-up recently because the CAM software is buggy as hell! so what I did was connect the radiator fans to cpu_fan and cpu_opt and the pump to the dedicated aio_pump (mobo asus maximus 9 code).

Now my problem the fan constantly revving up and down!wheneve I do something like opening a browser normally cpu temp willl jump up and go back down fans starts to react to that causing the revving sound what settings in the bios can I do to get rid of it? or control via asus fan xpert?

Chances are your cooler's thermal paste was poorly applied and that is what causing temperature jumps. Of course, this leads to jumps in the fan speeds controlled by the motherboard to keep the temperatures in check.

Try getting CPUID's HWMonitor to monitor your CPU's temperature and report back with what you see.

CAM has a setting for that.

Go to: Settings> General> Hysteresis

My Kraken x62 does the same thing... what CPU do you have btw? i am on a 1600x and getting about: Idle: 40c gaming: 53c Stress: 75-80c

Hey hi, i have a intel I7700k about the same temps that you have. I am not using cam software as it is too buggy for me to use almost fried my cpu doesn't detect kraken after a few boot ups/restarts so my setup is AIO pump connected to dedicated aio header and fans connected to cpu_fan cpu_opt.

Turned off the extreme quiet mode in asus suite 3 and the symptoms actually went away so that might have fixed it.

interesting, CAM has been working brilliantly for me. it even replaced MSI Afterburner + RTSS as my in game system monitor overlay. my only complaint is that it uses a very small amount of bandwidth... not a lot but would probably lower my ping in CSGO by 5-10 points.

My experience with CAM was less than great too - Too buggy, too much memory, then after the update it used less memory but would freeze or crash the computer.

I found that after finding a good pump speed setting, simply unplugging the USB header resulted in a great system.

This runs the pump at a constant speed (which it should be anyway, as fluid flow rate has little impact on loop temperature). I then ran the fans directly of a motherboard header so I could control them directly. I used fan expert for a long time as it's very convenient - but eventually switch to Speedfan.

Very similar overall to your current setup, but leaving another free header for something else.
