Well this mobo is great so far but my god the PWM fan support is abysmal. I actually had to buy a fan controller for the first time in my life.

I've downloaded this F11 bios image like 5 times and used two different flash drives and a USB hard drive, and it keeps coming up as "Invalid Image" when trying to use Q-Flash in bios. Does anyone have any idea what gives?

You should be able to,i flashed back to f7 when i was trying something.

I finally got it to work, apparently Q-flash won't read bios images stored on a NTFS-Formatted flash/usb-hard drive / drive, had to reformat my flash drive FAT32 and it worked.

Also apparently the blue-screens I had before from F17 was not entirely related to the new bios image... one of my 4 hard raid'd hard drives was dying and is now dead, so... mad.gif

Also is @BIOS ok to flash with ?Many people say to never use that ..So please advise
Disabling Turbo Boost will keep your CPU @ 3.40GHz, but I'd leave it be... If you do want to turn-off the down-clocking feature, and see the CPU running at full speed... disable the EIST function, but it's a nice power saving feature.

fwiw... @BIOS has always worked fine for me.

Hey thanks for the reply, I wanted to keep Turbo to 3.8 on but stop the downclocking, but I guess I won't since it works. But thanks for telling me what to look out for if I ever wanted to turn it off.

I totally agree dude. Awesome board, poor fan control options. Fortunately for me, my fans are such a low rpm, you can't hear 'em anyways smile.gif

Adding to this, I found even the latest August 2012 build of Easy Tune 6 to be a horrible application that crashes constantly and fails to save fan settings (the graph needs to be re-configured each time I restart). Gigabyte are arrogantly lazy in their app development. I had gone the 100% PWM 4-pin fan route, probably just because I could (this is one of the few motherboards that facilitates PWM on all System fans, not just the CPU one). Not worth it because of the horrible PWM management that sends the fans into high gear almost always.

I don't think a fan controller would help much, would it? You still end up manually fiddling knobs, right?

you just have to set your timings in bios before you boot (no XMP)
