I just bought a PC with the following config - AMD Ryzen 2700X, mobo - ASUS Prime x470 Prime and Corsair H100i v2, and Asus GeForce 1070. Now I am totally new to all this and don't understand the jargon. The whole system was running in the silent mode and I went and changed a bucnh of things, downloaded MSI afterburner and played with the fan controller which is part of the AI Suite. And then i also read that changing most of the fan settings from the bios is more reliable than using any of the software as there were a bunch of issues.
- I just want someone to tell me how do i get back to the silent mode, and what are the pros and cons. I believe I changed from DC to PWM or something like that.
- Somewhere in the bios I was also asked if i'd be using this for standard use or gaming and i think i chose standard use. Does this in any way affect the fan noise or not? I am kind of wary of turning on the pc as every time i load an application, the fans just revv up and the temperatures soar up......to 70.
