If you switch it off, there will be no more fan speed regulation. You could put CPU Fan Speed Low Limit to ignore, but then there will be no warning if your fan is actually not spinning.

I would not change. The Sound Card on the GENE-Z is a normal Realtek sound chip with a nice X-Fi sticker. This is a Software driven solution to enable eax effects etc., but the audio quality is not better than with any common onboard sound chip.
If you need one of the Z68 features (SSD caching and lucid virtu igp virtualization) but do not care about the m-atx form factor I would rather buy a P8Z68 series board. If you need an m-atx board, the GENE-Z is not a wrong choice.Edited by slimex - 8/10/11 at 4:56am
