Well THIS is what Brian answered ...

 

Quote Brian@ASUS:

Correct, you need a 4pin fan to control your fan. 3 pin fans can be controlled with a rehostat that controls voltage which adjusts speed. through the bios, with the 4pin, the fan has a sensor to tell it to spin x amount of RPMs.

 

What I take from that reply is that the MoBo DOES exactly what those of us that say we're controlling our 3 pin fans with the MoBo say it is doing, controlling the 3 pin Fan Speed using adjustable resistance controlled through set amounts via the BIOS. WE CAN ADJUST THE FAN SPEED.

 

IT also means that this controll is LIMITED and NOT controlled by temperature fluctuations via the MoBo sensors or a 4 pin Fans sensor, but WE ALREADY KNEW THIS I thought anyways ?

 

Brian is saying if you want AUTOMATED VARIABLE FAN CONTROL via a sensor reading you need the 4 PIN PWM FAN.

He's ALSO saying you can use the MoBo and BIOS to set a SPEED for the FAN to run at, and this is user controlled via FAN X-pert / Q-Fan in the BIOS ... just like we've been saying ?

 

So not really sure this cleared anything up did it ? Some of you say you can't get Fan X-pert or Q-fan to adjust your fan speed at all it sounds like, and you SHOULD be able to do this, even with a 3 PIN non-PWM FAN.

I finally got an official answer to this a few weeks ago.

Years ago, Some MOBO's would do a quik shutdown if no fan sensed on header
Like some others, I ain't messing around with these header [fan speed] controls.

In the BIOS under fan control you can set the CPU fan header to "ignore" and that will allow it to boot without a fan connected to the CPU header.

Kinda did. thumb.gif

Shouldn't be all this difficult. When my "trusty" SpeedFan app starting coughing up fur-balls,
I knew sumthin wasn't right. I'm only 3 days into this new build, but i've been around enuff
to know I shouldn't be having to spend this much time with fan speed issues.

Why i'll throw a manual controller in. Simplify the entire process.

HA !!!!!! I knew that had to be a "feature"

For over 15 years, done nothing but ***** about the old school bios's....But I learned 'um.
Now I got this pretty GUI'fied bios, and i'm lost wth.gif They shoulda released this type of
bios years and years ago. Quite impressive.

Just gotta get used to flippen thru all the pages , finding all the common used settings.

Thanks for the heads up !!!!

@  solar0987

 

I'm just trying to get you SOME sort of answer and start the ball rolling on others helping you too ...

so forgive my not thinking at 100% right this second drunken.giflong night last night,  but the sms bus controller ?  you're the FIRST person I think to have a System Management Bus Controller issue ?

 

This is how you should go about getting the MoBo up and running {getting Drivers loaded up} ...

 

Quote:

Should I download the drivers out of their site or the cd that comes with the motherboard?

How to install drivers =

 

CD first ... because you'll need the NIC driver to go online ... then you can decide if you want to update the BIOS and other drivers, SOME people are still running on the Original BIOS w/o problems, others updated and had issues, other updated and got rid of issues ... it's for sure a YMMV kinda thing.

Steps I took: ... others might have done it differently ?

- assemble your system, but leave INTERNET disconnected
- turn on/Boot up your system
- do a CLEAN install of Win7 on your SSD/HDD
- install NIC/LAN drivers from Asus Support CD
- NOW Connect to the INTERNET & run windows updates
- install drivers & apps from Asus Support CD or from ASUS Website
- decide about BIOS/driver updates off Asus website support (
Install the ones you want)
Hope that helps

 

 


 

EDIT Also, as far as fixing up the FRONT PAGE FIRST POST ...  I've decided to just WAIT a few days and let the fine OCN people figure out all the messes they made and fix them, before I go trying to correct all the stuff again for not, as they may make corrections that overwrite my fixes and I don't really want to be wasting my time and effort ... thanks for understanding rolleyes.gif

Wow, I just bought a PCI soundcard.

Found out this motherboard does not have PCI slots though, after opening it!

Ty, yes i did all that twice actually and still no luck.
What is the best bios to use?
And i cant even get a stable overclock at there preset tunings 4.2-4.6 hell even the auto overclocking doesnt work. just 124's almost immediately.
Its my processor it takes crazy voltage to be stable.
But 5.0 ROCKING!!!! #1 score for 3dm 11 for my hardware biggrin.gif and im less clocked on video card and processor LOVIN IT
