That's why I'm not sure what to do. Based on what you said I should be able to power the H20 920 pump and its two fans from the CPU_FAN port without worrying about the pump changing speed, but I'm worried it may get too close to the 1A, 12W limit.
I might still be better off letting the pump's USB software control those two fans and connect it to the PSU directly. If I went that route and left the CPU_FAN port empty, its just change a setting in the bios? Nothing else to worry about? And on the other hand keeping the pump on the CPU_FAN line means if the pump dies I'll get some warning about it.
Yeah a fan controller would solve the problem but I'd like to take advantage of the Fan Xpert 2 software that grambo wants to use as well.
Speaking of Fan Xpert 2 that kind of sucks if it really can only use the CPU temp for fan control. The z77-v pro and deluxe have other sensors on the motherboard right? If the Sabertooth has it, they should have been able to mix temps too.

the only good thing about fan expert 2, is that because it is a service it starts in the background as windows starts (before login in fact) .

i.e got my fans swinging from idle (40%) to 100% over a 10C range on the CPU (as its cpu not core), so it goes from 40% at 40C to 100% at 50C. it actually works reasonably well, especially if you have them ramp quick, and fall away slowly/very slowly (it stops of the 'hunting' you might otherwise get). The only thing it would fail me on is giving more air to the gpu under gpu only load. But thats really rare.

Is it possible to turn off most of the 3rd party chipsets (like the asmedia)?

I want to lower power consumption and lower boot times.

Yup.

Though I don't know if Asus changed some things because I can't disable my SATA controller on my P9X79 WS. Have to do it manually in Windows which is pretty lame. thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif

Hopefully the Z77 boards aren't inflicted with the same issue.

I have maximus V gene and it is the best motherboard I ever used.Definately I'll do some serious overclock to 2700k when w/c parts arrive...

My Intel Rapid Storage Technology Driver doesn't respond/start. I've tried the driver from this thread and the one from Asus website with no luck. Does this usually happen because of my physical hardware setup or is it OS dependent?

Raid is on in bios?

Isn't intel RST the raid management software for intel? It always used to be.

Yes but I heard it's recommended for any storage setup (SSDs, RAIDs, etc)
