I have a 10850k with a x63 kraken. I noticed each time I game/anything intensive, the CPU fans speed up, slow down, then repeats this for a while randomly.

I do not have the system overclocked and I adjusted Q fan settings from auto to PWM to DC and same results. Any suggestions? I was hoping to keep this system relatively quiet.

System:
10850k
x63 kraken
Asus Maximus Xii hero
RTX 3080 MSI gaming z
Corsair Vengeance low profile 3600
1000Hx Corsair
980 ssd samsung
meshify 2 case

set a custom fan curve. set it at ~25 flat until ~55* then ramp to 100% at ~80, something like that. the aio can handle the little blips, just need it to ramp up under loads.
*you can use something to find the "blip" temps and set it a few c above.

You need to set a fan curve. I don’t have a nzxt AIO, but I have Corsair and use icue to make the adjustments. The fans that are attached to my motherboard header get changed separately
