Do you currently have freezes and crashes at total defaults?

On other boards (e.g. cheap Foxconn) I have been able to make settings to slow the fan down to "almost stopped" for a really quiet system when it is on really low load. This is great when playing music, for example. The super S/N of the Gigabyte audio output isn't so useful if the fans are making a din in the background!
Having seen the 4-pin system fan headers in the UD5H spec, I specially bought some 4-pin PWM-controllable fans to upgrade my system. These should be capable of continuously variable speed, yet as I explained all I can get so far is slow or fast.
It would be very nice to have the fan control flexibility that I have used before on other systems where both the PWM "gain" (i.e. rate of increase in speed with temperature) AND "threshold" (i.e. temperature offset) can be set in BIOS. In fact, Easytune gives this type of response curve adjustment, but it doesn't save those settings for me and I don't want to be forced to always have it loaded.
Having adjustment of PWM gain and threshold allows you to set both the temperature when the fan starts to "kick in" as well as how it gets faster with temperature. With those two controls you have a classic proportional type control system which can be tuned for really good temperature stability. If the fan control is limited to just slow or fast, there will be more variations in system temperature which (by my book) is theoretically worse for reliability.
Try some of the PWM settings other than set presets. Do you have the CPU fan control mode set to voltage or PWM? I personally have mostly all 3-pin fan connectors and they work fine, just if the temperature is going to be the CPU temperature, the issue with Ivy bridge is that there is no slope, just a slope of 0, as in rise is 1 but the run is 0, you know slope=rise/run in laymen terms. Well if it takes less than 1second for iy bridge to hit its temperature, then you won't get scaling. On other platforms you will though.
Why not use easytune? are you sure it resets? or is it just that you have to have easytune start up to have that kind of control?

I put another CPU in my board and it fired right up, put my cpu in another board and it doesnt fire up, so I got a bad chip or killed it..
also it looks like my pump took a dump on me, the lights wont come up on the base other than the light for the person icon on the bottom right, the button doesnt make it change speeds.
So basically your cooler died and killed your CPU because it overheated, yea that is what i figured happened. I was wondering why the heck my system wouldn't boot and I kept freezing up on windows login, then i remembered I didn't plug in the pump, and CPU temp was through the roof. that is why i told you to switch coolers, because the CPU heats up so fast, that it can really get hurt, especially with an OC applied to it, if there isn't some type of active cooling. I am sure 13 hours of prime95 didn't help it either.

I would download the latest version and uninstall the last one, why are you having issues? or are you just trying t install it? i didn't know they came out with updates for it.
