Flow sensor "calibration"


Recommended Posts

Thanks for the info, but I was more asking where in Adia64 I can enter the information. All I see is the ability to create a "correction" in the settings with a ratio and or offset. To even begin to see if I can calculate a proper offset I would need to know the current curve that Adia64 is using. Also, if the flow sensor isn't linear or a different linearity than what is used in Adia64 it won't work with one simple offset.

AIDA64 doesn't use any curve.  When it shows a RPM reading, the direct (raw) RPM value comes from the sensor that provides the reading for it.  You can use the AIDA64 Correction facility to apply a ratio and/or an offset to any given reading, but you cannot convert a reading to go from one measurement unit to the other.

Say you have 1100 rpm when you connect the flow sensor to a fan header.

 

That would be ~255 L/H.

 

In AIDA64 you would determine which fan header was reading the flow sensor, Preferences>Correction>New Fan (X), To convert RPM to L/H, (255÷1100 = 0.231....)

Enter .231 in the ratio field, and you should see 255 value reported by that sensor in Sensor Panel. Then rename the Fan to Flow or whatever.

@Arctucas Thanks for the information! I'm a bit confused because I already see the RPM and Flow in Aida64 without me doing anything. In thinking about it, my mobo must be reporting  these somehow that Aida64 is picking it up. So, I really need to get the values reported from my mobo correct. The odd thing is that the value I see in Aida64 is 51 L/H but the Asus tool is reporting 8 L/M (480 L/H)

According to the chart provided by Alpha, @857 RPM the flow would be ~209 L/H.

 

I have no clue as to the Flow Sensor reading, perhaps Asus could answer what is happening there? Frankly, I never had faith in any Asus software, but that is just me.
