Asus Z68 Series Information Thread (drivers, BIOSes, overclocking, reviews) **UPDATED 4/22** - Page 120

You can choose the individual tools that you install with AI Suite. Just install AI Suite and uncheck everything but Fan Xpert.

But most say, if not everyone, here to stay away from AI Suite, right? If you install it once in your system, it is very hard to uninstall without leaving any traces of it. Even Coderush himself is advising to stay away from this crappy software. I just wonder if I could only have Fan Xpert without the Suite?

Double post out of nowhere.

I use AI suite with Fan Xpert and other monitoring tools with no problems at all. I do not use nor have installed the AI suite overclocking tools - I overclock in the BIOS - nor do I install USB boost or USB charging. So not everyone says that wink.gif

if you run AI Suite along with other monitoring programs like HWMonitor then the readings get corrupted.
my mobo fail-safes actually tripped a couple of times before I figured it out.
so now if not needed I close AI Suite down and just run another monitoring app.

But would uninstalling AI Suite for the sake of just trying it with Fan Xpert and USB Boost do anything bad with your system?

I hope coderush can chime in here and back me up smile.gif

I have done that too and have never encountered any problems. The Fan Xpert is worth it for me.

I have also uninstalled it with no ill effects.

Can you use the latest Fan Xpert (the one for Z77 boards) on our boards?

run AI Suite and HWMonitor together study it a little bit while they run and notice the amount of sensors.
then run HWMonitor by itself.
you will see more readings (sensors) with the AI Suite running and temps will seem excessively high on a few sensors.
and this is true on both my ASUS boards, P67 WS Rev B3 and Z77-M Pro..
(I no longer have a P8Z68, I made the move to the Z77.)

So even though you close AI Suite while running HWMonitor there will still be sensor problems? Were you able to fix this?
