    [SOLVED] Strange infos from "Fan Control V112"

    Dear Community :D I've installed "Fan Control V112" a few days ago and realized, that one fan has a very low and the other an extremely high rpm. Is that normal, or do I have to look after that? Many many thanks! In bios, one fan is always at 0 rpm, maybe its the CPU?

    [SOLVED] What is the fan threshold setting on Asus Fan Xpert (AI Suite 3)

    Hi, as the questions says I was wondering what happens if I increase the fan threshold in the app. I am hoping this will increase the minimum speed my fans will run at so they do not go below this RPM. Many thanks, Tom
