PWM fans are the only ones that can be controlled it seems.

Yes to your first question, no to the second. You can even customise them in Windows using the ASUS Fan Xpert tool

It's in my sig. On my computer I was able to set offset sign to - and adjust -0.010 but I don't show this to avoid confusion.

I recommend Prime95 too because on every platform i've owned (478, 775, AM3, 1366 and 1155) one program never catches all of the instabilities. I'm actually re-testing my current OC because Prime95's Small FFTs test blue-screened my computer when LinX didn't .
+1 here.

Ive always found that i could pass LinX but bluescreen in prime and/or vice versa. So if i can do 25 passes of linx and 8hrs prime then im happy, and so far has proved good enough for what i do (no f@h though).

It seems that i need a little more vcore to be stable in LinX compared to prime, temps is also higher by 5-8deg.

Here's a screenshot of linX

with prime i can lower vcore to 1.420V

Well, I am tech whore. I sold off my HD6990's about a month ago and got the HD6870x2, which started to give me issues, so it's off to RMA. So instead of putting my two GTX480's back in, which would have been fine, I go and grab another HD6990 from the FS section. I got a great price on it and I still had a water block for it, plus I missed it. Anyway, I am almost done with my desk mod and hopefully I will have pics this weekend for everyone. I didn't do a build log, just don't have the time to do it, but the final pics should be pretty good.

Congrats zlojack,
And thanks for the kind words I guess I should have known BEER was involved coming from a LEAFS fan j/k

And please do share, the more info we can share and get out there the better, I'll add you to the Owners List

P.S. - Ummm hey zlojack, I noticed your post on the ROG forums ... and I wonder if some of your issue's are you tried downloading the BIOS from the Maximus IV EXTREME -Z68 board ... FWIW

We seem to have some wildly conflicting reports about this, and from the best I can come up with, I think it's resulted in an issue of BIOS version maybe ? as it seems that on the OLD original BIOS for some they could, I thought I was ? really haven't had time to play with it and test it to be sure I was actually controlling it or not, but those on NEWER BIOS' seem not to be able to control NON-PWM fan's anymore, and at least NOT the CPU fan header ? I've been trying to read up and track an answer to this one down.

I asked the question on the RoG forums but never someone@ASUS replied. Only GOTFrog replied claiming it is working with 3 pins on CPU fan header.

Has anyone noticed a difference in device charging times with AiCharger+ enabled? I just plugged in my iPhone (USB3.0 front port) and enabled it, didn't notice any change even after unplugging and plugging it back in.
