Might be Driver related, did you install the RealTek drivers FIRST and then the SupremeFX X-Fi 2 software Drivers ?

And by "connected through the motherboard itself" I take it you mean through the rear I/O audio connectors ? Does anyone know if there's a setting in the BIOS that needs to be enabled or something ?

Hi Guys,

My Hyper 212+ is loud. I went to the bios and changed the fan speed to silent. Well, now my temp is little higher, but the difference is gonna be bigger in high loads. Does anyone have any problem with Hyper 212+ noise?

I've never met a Cooler Master product that's been quiet. Many of them claim to be, but never have they delivered.

Here's an interesting analysis about the fan on that cooler:

Try Different FANS ... the COOLER itself is great, but the single STOCK Fan it comes with can get loud {Noise Level 13 - 32 dBA}. It should work even better and would be quieter with better quality fans in a dual 120mm's push pull. You can either try some other CoolerMasters (2 of these in RED would look great with the Gene) {19 dB(A)}, or spend the $$ and try some Noctua fans {19.8 dB(A)} or you can look around these sites ... http://www.endpcnoise.com/cgi-bin/e/index.html /or http://www.acousticpc.com/index_quie...uter_fans.html /or http://www.coolerguys.com/120fan.html

The CoolerMaster GeminII S w/ it's "SILENT" 120mm that I have in my other Rig is very quiet {19 dBA} ... and these CM 120mm Blue LED fans I picked up are also pretty quiet {21 dBA} ? Especially when you take into account they tend to be half to a third the cost of some other brands

Just remember, dB readings are not the sole indicator of noise level. Certain frequencies and the regularity that sounds are generated are key things as well. The issues I've had with CM fans are a) the specs are ALWAYS overrated/inaccurate, b) the noise quality is poor. Refer to that article I linked in my last post as an example. He spoke of light, regular clicking noises being made by the fan. Things like high-frequency whines can be an issue as well. Sounds that frequently change can be a problem as well. Our ears detect changes in sound relatively well, so any inconsistent sounds may be noticed and may become irritating.

I'm not a silence freak or anything, but I do place value on not having annoying sounds coming from my computer when I'm trying to sleep.

You guys using BCLK to oc at all? I'm using the auto OC to 4.6 but played around with upping BCLK to 101... didn't really notice a difference.

My fan was initially running at 1930 RPM! It seems MIVGZ runs all fans at maximum speed.

In bios, I enabled fan control, and set it to silent. It's silent now!

If I wan to set the speed fixed at 1400 rpm, what should I do?

With the great PWM controls on this motherboard and a PWM-supporting CPU cooler, I think it would be a shame not to utilize it. It's a great feature.

Use FanXpert (part of the AI Suite) to set up a fan profile that keeps it on the low side. Set it so the speed only ramps up past, say, 40 or 50%, when you are going something very intensive (ie: temperature goes up) and you are unlikely to notice as you are working (gaming) hard.
