I have tried both 3pin and 4pin fans. The Rampage III formula comes with 3 x OPT_FAN headers, they are 4 pin but I believe they are not PWM. I believe I have damaged OPT_FAN headers 1&2 (dont ask - long story, I got over enthusiastic with my multimeter. This board can control fan speed to these headers within the BIOS but with this switched off normally the headers run the fans at full speed. Now after my heavy handiness they do not, they just run at a very slow speed. The repair job is probably a little beyond my soldering capabilities, I am not really sure how to go about getting these fixed. There really is nothing wrong with the rest of the board so there is no point in replacing it, for a couple of damaged fan headers. ASUS obviously will not repair it under warranty so I am not sure how to proceed. lol, do you fancy having a go at repairing my board? Willing to pay for the repair!
