ASUS FanXpert 2 on Z77 Motherboards - Page 8

post #71 of 95
I have a question about Fan Xpert 2. This is my first post of hopefully many to these forums. I currently have a P8Z77 Pro with a Noctua DH D14 on the way. This is gonna be the first computer that I am going to be attempting to overclock. Since the D14 is a 3 Pin CPU connector, will I have any way of controlling the speed of the 2 CPU fans in Xpert 2 or will the cooler fans be stuck at 100%? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

It depends if the NH-D14 you purchased is the SE2011 version that comes with 2 PWM fans, those will be controllable, the older ones will be at 100% and you will need to use the ULNA/LNA adapters to slow them down. Although the CHA_FAN headers should be able to control fans via voltage so you could try plugging those into the CHA_FAN headers and try ... I haven't because I want my CPU fans on the CPU_FAN headers

If the problem is fixed, will Fan Xpert 2 be able to monitor and adjust all fan speeds automatically based on the usage (i.e. low fan speed at idle and high fan speed when gaming, etc)?

I am going to build a quiet PC for my next build. I am considering Asus Z77 boards, because Gigabyte MB doesn't have anything as good as Fan Xpert 2.

I have the Z77 Sabertooth mother board. In the down load section of ASUS for the Sabertooth I cannot find the ASUS Xpert 2 down load.

I'm wanting to control the mini motherboard fans and have no way to turn down the RPM's. I cannot find the link that will enable me to download ASUS Xpert 2 software. I've read through all these posts and do not see a link.

Anyone know where one can pick up the software down load for ASUS Xpert 2 fan?

Ok - I found it! It was on the ASUS website and just above in the P8Z77-V PRO section of downloads. ASUS Fan Xpert 2 does work on the Windows 7 version of Sabertooth Z77 board I can confirm.

Finally I quieted that silly mini fan to less than a whirl from a high pitch 'zzzzzzzz' LOL.

I was under the impression i was ripped off and had made a bad choice getting the Sabertooth z77 partly because I couldn't control the fan speeds. Couldn't locate a download for Fan Xpert 2. BUT, after digging around some more and looking through the manual I was able to find all the fan controls in ASUS Thermal Radar (and in BIOS as well). Open Thermal Radar, click on the FAN ICON tab or the CASE icon tab and click on one of the fans. From there choose settings. Fan speed automation is highly customizable or set it to one of the preset up profiles, or turn them off completly! (I set all mine to silent profile for now) accept for the accessory fans which I have turned off completely, you can really hear a difference with them turned off and with normal use, PCH, DRAM temps only went up 1-3 degrees celcius with them off (39-42celcius in my case). I haven't used Fan Xpert 2 but I can say I'm very impressed with the Thermal Radar. I really don't think ASUS has done a good enough job of actually advertising that its not just a bunch of censors but a fan control system as well. That being said...no matter what I set the CPU profile to for fans, my NH-D14 fans still run at full speed. Why ASUS provides the option to adjust the profiles for those fans but then bypasses the settings without saying anything, I don't know but it sucks

If anybody on here has been able to voltage-control the FAN's in teh CPU headers on the Sabertooth z77 let me know just in case mine is defective or something but so far all i've read is that its bypassed on all boards for those headers (so why give the option to set profiles for them!)
