The SIM Software

Be sure to reset the PC before you attempt to use the software. As you can see, opening it prior to a restart leaves the window blank with no idea of what's going on.

After the system restart you can see the SIM software now recognizes all the fan systems. It not only gives numbered reading for the RPM of the fans, but there is also a gauge to monitor speeds as well. In interest of time and wiring, I did not use any of the supplied temperature sensors. This is why the fans read 0 and the gauge is bottomed out. One last thing to note is the on/off switch for the LEDs in all the fans. Just a simple click will eliminate or illuminate the four separate fan systems.

When you first activate the SIM software, all the fan profiles are set to the "Silent A" setting. From the main page, you simply click on the controls button at the bottom of the window, which brings you to this screen. At this screen you can click on which "F" group you want to change and set them to the appropriate profile.

Here is a look at the "F1" group of fans. Notice in the top left corner, the front two 120mm red fans that that stand out on the image. These are the fans I am currently changing to "Performance" for testing. The performance setting delivers a constant 12 V to the fans versus the ramped settings for Silent A and B settings. There are two settings I haven't addressed. 0dB Start is a startup with no fans, but once a set temperature is reached, the fans run off a ramped fan setting. Last is the "Fanless" setting, which is very self explanatory; this runs the PC with no current supplied to the fans in that group.

Continuing on with the groups of fans, you can see "F2" controls a set of 80mm fans along with the 140mm rear case fans, again with all the same options.

"F3" controls the four 80mm fans used to cool the top radiator, which is capable of eliminating up to 250W of heat.

It only makes sense that "F4" should control the four 80mm fans that cool the lower radiator. Combined with the fans at full speed, Ikonik states this cooling system is capable of handling a total of 500W between both radiators.

This leaves us with the "F5" settings. This is what controls the variable speed pump. All of these settings allow each user to define his or her own comfort levels of cooling and noise. The "F6" tab is there for you to add another fan to the SIM controller and have control over its settings as well.

Ikonik includes an alarm feature with the SIM system. You can set each fan speed alarm individually and set the temperatures individually as well. This is in place for those who can't see into their rigs all the time. Even if the flow meter is spinning it doesn't guarantee the fans or temperatures are good.
