Thread: Fan Temps

  1. #1

    Default Fan Temps

    160* thermostat

    Looking to figure when I should start to have fans come on. I think they begin to come on at 178 and are on 100% by 185

    Just curious if thats too low, or too high

    little low, remember a 160 stat starts opening at 160, not fully open until about 175-178f (with my stove top testing). id have the fans start at 185f and ramp up by like 192f.

    I have mine set to 93C/97C for fans 1 and 2. So 199F and 207F. A little hotter to burn off any condensation that might have made it into the oil.
