Mine looks like this
ACO Trip 65 F1 100 F2 100
AC1 Trip 57 F1 30 F2 35
AC2 Trip 48 F1 15 F2 15
Fan off 40
With these settings my machine idles at 42 degrees and the fans rotate so slow they are barely audible. As the machine goes under load and the temp increases so does the fan speed. At 48 it should only be rotating the fans at 15 percent speed of 100 percent. As the temps raise to 57 the fans will rotate up to a max of 30 and 35 percent. If you listen closely you can tell when the fans speed up and slow down based on the points and percent you set.
