    Cpu/Gpu fans not active when playing Life is Strange: True Colors


    As the title says, when playing Life is Strange: True Colors specifically, both CPU and GPU fans are not as active as they should be. I've opened my device and checked both fans, but found no obstructions in either components.

    I also tried testing them with the Control Center 2.0 app by manually setting them to run on Maximum Settings and both fans appear to be working properly, I then tested all my other games by using the default Automatic Setting I've always used , and they spun quickly enough for me to hear them doing so, along with producing strong air flow.

    It seems only with Life is Strange: True Colors, will the fans stay idle and not ramp up as they should compared to all my other my other games, which do so immediately after booting them up.

    Any suggestion's for this?

    The game doesnt control the fans, the video card and its temp sensors do. Is the gpu even getting warm with this game?

    Both the CPU and GPU actually. Like, it runs pretty hot within just a few minutes.

    You need to install the GPU program that came with the card and manually adjust the fans
    The Cpu should be controlled by the motherboard unless you have a AIO installed if that's the case use the AIO software to adjust the fans if not you will have to go into the bios and see what speeds you can set your fans to.
