fixed: AIDA64 uses "wrong" source for CPU fan RPM value (Asus U32U)

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I'm trying out and evaluating AIDA64, looks like an excellent all-rounder!

My hardware is an old laptop ASUS U32U.

However I noticed that CPU FAN rpm value is using the "wrong" source. Here is part of the ISA Sensor dump:

_TZ_.RFAN(0)               : <TYPE>0</TYPE><LEN>4</LEN><DATA>31</DATA>
_TZ_.RFAN(1)               : <TYPE>0</TYPE><LEN>4</LEN><DATA>31</DATA>
_SB_.ATKD._HID             : <TYPE>1</TYPE><LEN>8</LEN><DATA>pnp0c14</DATA>
_SB_.ATKD.TMPR             : <TYPE>0</TYPE><LEN>4</LEN><DATA>2034968</DATA>
_SB_.PCI0.LPC0.EC0_.CCTV   : 
_SB_.PCI0.LPC0.EC0_.LRPM   : 
_SB_.PCI0.LPC0.EC0_.HRPM   : 
_SB_.PCI0.SBRG.EC0_.ECPU   : <TYPE>0</TYPE><LEN>4</LEN><DATA>62</DATA>
_SB_.PCI0.SBRG.EC0_.TACH(0): <TYPE>0</TYPE><LEN>4</LEN><DATA>4294967295</DATA>
_SB_.PCI0.SBRG.EC0_.TACH(1): <TYPE>0</TYPE><LEN>4</LEN><DATA>4294967295</DATA>

Firstly I manually set the CPU fan to fully stop, wait for it to spin down completely.

AIDA64 uses the reading from _TZ_.RFAN(0) = 31, which shows up as 3100rpm.

Whilst the correct value should be read from _SB_.PCI0.SBRG.EC0_.TACH(0) whose current value is 4294967295, which is 0, the correct value.

Using SpeedFAN and HWinfo, I can see the "correct" value.

I understand that there might be a bug in my motherboard's EC or ACPI table, cauing the method RFAN to return erratic values. My question is that, is it possible to customize AIDA64 to use the desired readout (TACH(0)) from ACPI?

Full isasensordump is attached below.

Thanks!

Does TACH(0) always provide the correct RPM when your fan is spinning at various non-zero RPMs?

Thanks for the timely reply!

Yes, I can comfirm that by listening to the fan and watching the numbers in HWiNFO. And TACH(0) seems to provide the RPM number with more precision.

Also maybe due to some bug in my model's EC/ACPI imp'l, _TZ_.RFAN(0) tend to jump erratically, ranging from 100 to several tens of thousands, so I would like to know is there a way to customize AIDA64's reading a bit.

Thanks!

Thanks for the speedy response, I've tested this latest build and indeed the rpm readout is now the desired one. Thanks for the amazing product!:)

Thank you for your feedback and for your kind words ;)

      Running a Gigabyte Vision D Z490 board with the Core i5-10400 CPU. Have configured the fans in  BIOS but Aida64 doesn't see any of them in the LCD option, none are listed.
      Also, CPU temp never changes from 28celcius so I'm guessing that isn't really working either.

      when logging to a csv file with aida64, there are for a brief moments some very low drops in +12v (also on +5v, +3.3v and cpu core), and at the same moment a drop on the reading CPU fan and also all other fans ( CAHSSIS #1, #2 and #3)
      Motherboard: Gigabyte ax370-gaming-k7
      could it be a faulty PSU, Motherboard, or some bug in the bios ?
      regards,

      Why doesn't my AIDA64 show the fan speed?
      The model is aliwenware 17R5 
      But my app can display the fan speed as the temperature

      Hi All, 
      Firstly I love AIDA64. It is so feature rich I can't believe I used anything else for so long! I spent 5 hours yesterday fine tuning my LCD panel display on my Android Tablet!
      I am running a Threadripper System with a ASUS ROG Zenith Extreme X399 TR4 Motherboard. 98% of the sensors are there there, there are just a few missing. For the Fans the latest AIDA Beta shows CPU and CPU OPT and CHA Fan 2. What is missing is CHA FAN 1, H_AMP_FAN, W_PUMP+ and the 3 CHA FANS on the extension board that Plugs into the EXT_FAN header.
      As I am running a TR system that runs warm it important to be able to monitor the H_AMP_FAN and W_PUMP+ connectors as that will tell me if my Liquid Cooler is operating properly. 
      Let me know if I can provide any other info or testing to help.
      Regards,
      Lachlan.

      The sensor report shows the wrong fan headers for the Gigabyte Aorus Z390 master MB.  Here is what I was able to determine on my MB fan headers.  I did not use System 1 fan header and since AIDA64 did not see a Chassis 3 fan sensor I have to assume that System 1 fan header is your Chassis 3.
      CPU = CPU
      CPU OPT = System 6 Pump
      Chassis 1 = System 3
      Chassis 2 = System 2
      Chassis 3 = not reported
      Chassis 4 = System 5 Pump
      Chassis 5 = System 4
      Chassis 7 = CPU_OPT
