I have only the CM fan that came with it and another I had laying around, and it's not great. But thanks for that info. I am still learning a ton about fans. There are too many of em!
If you need more precise control, get a couple of 4-pin fans and use a fan controller. The Tri-Cools are OK fans, but if you really want that level of control.... use PWM fans.

Thanks, I'll look into that. I don't think fan controllers are too badly priced.

You really don't have to burn the BIOS to a disk. Just use a thumb drive. Open the thumb drive in ASUS EZFlash thing, select the BIOS, install. MUCH easier than burning...and possibly wasting a disk for that.

I still think 1105 has been the most stable, at least for my config. I'm not concerned with AOD functionality, so I've not found any benefit to newer BIOS.

I just like to try new BIOS's when they come out. I am trying 1403 at the moment. But since my tamps have gone up since 1301, I will be reflashing back to 1301 pretty soon, just haven't had the time to mess with it much. I hate moving so much.

Or as simple as DL'ing the file into your PC and just locate it where you save after DL on the BIOS tool (ASUS EZFlash) .. it just like updating drivers ..

Does anyone else experience temp change after updating/downgrading bios ver?

I haven't used the tool that way. But I may do that to downgrade to 1301. Yes, I have noticed a temp change afterwards too. Check out the screenhot I've got of my insane temps a few pages back. That was after I switched to 1403. Been running Prime95 at stock speeds for about an hour now, and my temps are up to 52.6°C.!

I checked and LLC was Enabled (Auto) so I turned it off. Temps are still up high though.
