Exclamation Tuniq tower fixed! Warning to the rest

Thankyou to whoever told me to try a different mobo plug, cause I did, and as soon as I started it up I instantly noticed the tuniq was far louder then usual ( before I couldn't even hear it at max rpm which was 1100, min being 490 ) but now its running at 2000 rpm max and 1000 low ( these are the correct operational rpms ). I was looking around a bit and found a few others on different forums that had the same problem and thought their tuniq tower sucked. Not true! Its just not getting enough juice out of some mobo 3 pin plugs

Frankly I'm surprised at the large amount of people who didn't figure this out before, since I guess its not that common for people to check rpms in bios and just assume its running correctly if its running. I just hope no damage was done to my q6600 g0 when it was running at 500 rpm ( although core temp said the temps of my chips never went above 50 celcius and I set a mobo alarm for 60 celcius threshold ).

Now I just have to figure out why my mobo does a long beep during shut down...

oh and temps seemed to drop 2-3 celcius at idle, thought some say the differance will be more dramatic at load

NOTE: Tuniq towers tech support is HORRIBLE if existant at all. They only have e-mail tech support ( under the wrong name ) and when I e-mailed them they took more then a week to respond with this message: "Your tuniq tower is broken"

Just that...can you friggin believe that? My e-mail to them was like 3 paragraphs long and they just reply with that...What kind of tech support crap is that...horrible company...decent product

YES first major achievement, helping someone WOOO. I had a similar problem my 4 pin header wasn't getting enough juice or was just completely broken, the fan would move like an inch on startup then not move at all.

when i was trying to set up the special ethernet features of my 590SLI...the guy had no idea where he was...let alone what i was talking about lol.
they are not bad in the fact that yes, a real person (who typically doesnt know sh*t) answers the phone. the second time i called, i felt like i had accidentally mis-dialed and gotten Popeye's Fried Chicken or something.
maybe i just got the bad egg (or the bad piece of chicken lmao) of evga's tech support.
all other problems/questions since then i have just figured out myself.

I disagree with you here, I like EVGAs tech support, all the reps I spoke too were americans and helped me to the best of their ability even offering un-standard advice like getting Rivatuner. Tuniq doesnt even have phone tech support!

to each his own i guess...
although i am basing this on only a couple of calls. seems like one of them, i had to actually ask the guy to stop eating doritos/cheetos/ruffles whatever tasty chip it may have been.
i still buy their products because they are well made. their tech support makes my head hurt. JMO.
