    The custom fan will always stick, at start up or reboot. But you have to enable Link to start up with Windows. It starts minimized to the tray.

    Well I don't have it set to startup with Windows, actually I hardly ever even use it, and my fans work prefect. But I never used the default fans that came with it either.

    That's for the fixed customer fan (RPM) speeds to work at start up.

    Don't really care for their Link software much either. I have it setup, and watch my temps a lot using other software. But I never liked the default fans that came with it much. So never used them. I can monitor those fans without using the Link Software.

    Monitor, yes, but what do you control your CPU cooler fans with, or do you? Three choices:

    1) Control them in bios if your MB supports it. Most MB's support case fan control. Some can control those radiator fans, some don't, some need an add in card to control the rad fans.

    2) Control the rad fans with the software the cooler comes with.

    3) Plug everything in and don't control the CPU cooler fans in MB bios or software. The fans will run at default speeds all the time, which can be fine but is usually pretty low. Example, on my cooler, if not using MB fan control and not using cooler software (Link) the cooler fans will run at about 850RPM. I want to control these fans.

    MB controls all my fans, I can actually see them running just by looking in my case window. When the CPU starts to get too warm (OC'n) those fans automatically SPEED UP. I can hear them increase in speed. Look at my spec's. Asus MB

    And I am talking about the 2 fans for the radiator

    Where the MB supports control of ALL fans that's the best route IMHO.

    With that Asus board, if it's controlling all fans, you can run fan tuning in bios and adjust speed of each based on temps to your liking,

    The fans are currently connected to the Corsair control module and its controlling the fans.

    I ordered two Noctua NF-12P fans as its cheaper than a different cooler. Probably be late next week for delivery (3 to 5 business days) from Newegg.

    You can buy them from any place you want....But ....Amazon most of the time is cheaper for the exact same part. I also get the items in 2 days....sometimes 3.

    Mine is set to balanced but once in a while it would help to update the software as well

    Mine was super quiet from the day i got it but when i did a update they ramped up after a good cleaning and reset they are very quiet again and i have SP fans but i also bought different one's than the one's that came with it like AF SP etc ......

    My Fishtank and Heater are louder than my PC

    I don`t even use that software and I put the original fans back in the box too, they are way too loud.

    I bought Corsair SP140`s and connected them straight to 12 volt. They are very quiet, only 1440 RPM, and a pair of Thermaltake Luna 14 Slims for space reasons and they only run at 1200 RPM
