I want to set my fans to turn on when CPU and other components get too hot, but I don't know what temperatures are going to fry the parts and what points to have it turn them off when idling and such.

Please, can you post your system specs, like in my signature?.. We need to know what parts you have in order to give you any ideas.. And don't be cheap in the descriptions like I did..

There's a sticky too, with all the info you should fill..

Best regards..

You should always try and keep your CPU below 55°C, or 50°C if possible. You should never have them "off" as there should always be airflow through the case. Ideally you should be using high quality fans which run at full speed with negligible noise.

Honestly I shut off fan control on my son's AMD build and it is not noisy at all and I prefer seeing fans running at 1800+ rpms all the time vs some running at 900 and 1000 or whatever.  A fans job is to cool so do it right and to me that means shutting off the fan control in the BIOS.  It is simple to do.

I'd also suggest keeping the fans at a high rpm. I keep mine running full whenever the p.c is on. I use 4 fans at the front, one on the side, three on the top and 3 at the rear - all at 100% (excluding two CUP fans which run at 75%).
