its interesting that this mobo can adjust non PWM fans...
I guess it just has an Adjustable Voltage Regulator for the fans

Yeah, that's what it's doing. I didn't realize it could do that via Fan Xpert though.

My old P35 mobo does this too. It controls 3pin fans with voltage, from the 4 pin sys_fan header. However, this is nowhere documented

I might be able to order a 3 pin splitter and use that. That's how I'm controlling the 2 80mm fans I have.
Another option could be to use a Sunbeam Rheosmart Fan controller and use the PWM signal into none PWM fans. , probably more expensive, but that way you could control independently the chasis n radiator fans, and if you wish, you can also drop the PWM control and just use the knobs.

If you are interested, PCI bracket version that controls up to 2 fans, Sunbeam PL-RS-PCI Rheosmart PCI 20W Fan Controller $5, pretty cheap if you wish to try

What I worry about with that sort of product is that using PWM to control fans not optimized for PWM could result in fans that perform less than expected and/or be noisier.

If they're not designed to constantly start/stop, who knows...

Has anyone actually measured the Gene-Z's mosfet temperature with a IR gun or similar?
Was just wondering if that block is really necessary for OC'ing :S
Maybe it's when your running a wc setup on your chip and no air flow to the mosfets.Well but I don't know much about wc'ing so take this comment with a grain of salt.


But here's one thing puzzling me currently.
I'm having some "problems" with my 1Tb Samsung F3 drive.
It just occurred to me, could this be because of the board? I got both the board and the hdd same time so..
I have a separate thread about it here if someone bothers to take a look.

What 8GB ram kits should i buy?

Corsair CMX8GX3M2A1333C9 XMS3 CL9 kit 44EUR
Corsair CMZ8GX3M2A1600C8 Vengeance CL8 kit 66EUR

Is that performance and heatsink worth the 50% price difference? Or is there a kit, that does better than CL8 @ 1333? (not really going after internal design, so it doesnt matter for me, how they look)

Btw, i have no luck with the SSD... the X25-M G2 120GB for 180EUR is sold off, right before i went to buy one I dont know what to buy now... 510 for 254 EUR, or some other brand around 200?

Guys, i need urgent help with a very important matter.

I decided to upgrade my Rig with the new Corsair FORCE GT 120GB SSD so i installed the new SSD, erased the OS from my other HDD and installed Windows 7 on the SSD.

Everything was running smoothly when suddenly in one of the reboots (while installing drivers) it appeared the BSOD and then when i rebooted again it said that the Overclock Failed and that i had to enter Setup, but i did not changed any Overclock setting! So i had to downclock to stock speeds in order to make it run again and whenever i try to overclock it, when booting a BSOD appears and when turning it on again it says that the overclock failed... Any help with this?

Rep for a succesful answer!

No, oiw do i enable hot swap in the BIOS?
And also, how do i enable AHCI for the SSD? Is it enabled by default?

I have been reading that many people have a lot of problems with instability with the Corsair GT series but a new firmware was released, So i will try updating it and will post results tonight
