I don't use it that way, but then I want my fans to ramp up with CPU load, etc.

Disabling Q fan makes the funs run at full crank all the time, and these coolermaster 120mm are dissapointinly loud. Looks like im gonna have to redo my plans for my case project Night Fire

I think FAN X-pert in the Asus Suite II acts like a GUI for this ? but not sure if it overrides it if you don't have the Items ENABLED in the BIOS ?

I've tried fiddling with it but the stupid thing won't let me adjust lower min ducy cycle below 30% and won't let me change the lower chassis temp below 40c either. The motherboard temperature is also totally inaccurate so its making the fans ramp up for no good reason. It also doesn't indicate if its going by C or F for temperature as well. I'm also dissapointed I can't control the individual fan channels either, all 3 of the chassis are tied together.

Back to the drawing board cooling wise for the case mod project...ung......

Hehah guys, I _might_ be getting another Gene-Z

Been planning on upgrading my htpc rig, first was thinking about am3+/4gb 1600 cl7/x4 965be
But now I'm seriously considering about getting GZ+i3 2100 instead

I'm looking into upgrading my CPU to a 2500k and my friend recommended this mobo. But I've read that some coolers might cause problems if you are trying to x-fire or sli. I have a Cooler Master Hyper 212+. If I wanted to xfire 2 6870's, would I have issues with clearance and things fitting?

I just finished a build for a friend. Consists of this mobo, Hyper 212+ and a GTX 570. No problems with clearing between the 212+ and the GTX 570

So the top PCI-E slot should be okay? If so, I might make my transition to intel within the next few weeks. Looking to pick up a i5-2500k from microcenter (since its the cheapest)..it's just so far away from me =(.

That was one of the reasons I now use a fancontroller. Although I still use FAN X-pert for the memory cooler on the optimal fan header and the pump on the one next to it. This works fine for me.
And the temp in Fan X-pert is Celsius..so is in the uefi.
