if you change the fan setting (User Set) to SetOn and adjust all 3 fan speed to max.
you will hear the fans are all running full now.
close the program.
give it 5 seconds or less and the fans drops back to auto.
same test with the AC0,1,2 trips, i set it to have it react very low temps, during the program being running it hits full blast at 55c.
close the app 60c no full blast.
I know it still works after it's closed because I set the fan off at 40c, and since my system idles around 42/43 the fan never turns off. It blows at a very low speed but it still runs nonetheless. I can tell when the system has reset because the fan will turn off and I start to get the chirp.
As for percentages, the first and second give the fans an operating range. Just because you set the top end to 100% doesn't mean it will actually reach it. My Trip 2 is set at 48C with a range of 13% - 100%, but within this range my fan never goes to 100% at 48C. At 42C it ramps down to 13% and is barely audible.
Run a stress test on the cpu with SP2004 and you'll see how the fans ramp up as the temp rises.
Edit: If you turn user set on and turn up the fans, then turn off user set, then the settings will not keep. Only settings in the trip points window have any staying power.
