Also, Z77-OC is at the same price point as the 3 board I listed, yet lags horribly behind in fan control and PWM support, hence why I called the 3pin fan headers a "disgrace" .

Especially when barely any boards today offer voltage control of 3-pin fans.

If you say so.Me personally,I buy fans that run at 100%.I don't want pwm controlled fans.If I do want them,I buy a fan controller.I really see it as a waste of silicon and added power draw through the mobo.Now on a budget system,I understand the need for it,but you don't need that many.

Cough "The entire ASUS Z77 Line from $170(P8Z77-V LE Plus) and up" Cough. While Motherboard based & automated fan control + PWM fans may seem silly to people running 5 different fan controllers, it is a trend that ASRock is completely ignoring for sure.

Do I know you? You sound familiar.

I wouldn't say providing 3 4pin is completely ignoring. Can you provide a scenario where 3 4pin and 3 3pin fan connectors is not enough? Or is this just about Asus gives 5 so it's better?wink.gif

First , 1 of the 3 4 pin headers is the CPU fan header, another is the PWR_Fan which is either not controllable or must be at the same PWM value as the CPU header. You only get 1 true chassis header

Definitely not enough when I need to plug in 3 4pin Chasis PWM ( 1 side/top, 1 bottom 1 rear), as I can only plug in 2(since the CPU fan header is always occupied). Also it is not just ASUS with 5/6, it is MSI Mpower and the entire Gigabyte Z77X Line with 5X 4 pin headers as well.

This is not taking into account that just because you have 3 fan headers don't mean you can support 3 fans in the location you want them, you could have a bottom fan and a side PWM fan both needing a 4 pin fan header but only 1 4pin header on the bottom half of the board. More 4 pin fan headers= more control/more options/less $ spent on extension cables/splitters= less cables= better.

This is definitely one of the bad parts of Asrock boards. My E 6/GB board is the same. There's really no independent fan control on those headers. It's the one thing that seriously irked me. Other than that, the board is stellar.
