How do I set up SpeedFan with this board? Can't seem to get it to work. And do I need something in the bios?

Hi All

I'm sure this has been covered before but I recently built a system with a AMD Phenom II X6 1075T Thuban CPU with Corsair Memory XMS3 4GB DDR3 1600 MHz (CMX4GX3M2A1600C9 ) and it won't POST. I've read elsewhere that you need to flash the BIOS in order to get the motherboard to recognise the CPU. Is this the case?

I've ordered a standard AMD Athlon II X2 250 Regor CPU in order to get it to post and hopefully enable me to flash the board.

Is there any other way?

Thanks in advance.

That's a good idea! I have prepared sth like this in Google spreadsheet and I can share it with all of you with my results.
The only problem is to design a ledigble layout for everyone. Mine could be not quite clear to present everyone setups (when you input all of these data from every user).
So, if anyone has any idea how this layout should look to be more clear in understanding for everybody I can share with you all of my data I collected.

(Does anyone knows how to embeed this spreadsheet in post? Like in OP eclipseaudio4 did ? I have tried it but it won't appear ... just don't know how to set this thing in Google spreadsheet

Do you want to use SpeedFan to control your fans ? I don't use this software but (I had been using it a long time ago) what seems to be a problem for you?
I don't think you need do anything in BIOS.
Just make sure that all of your fans are set for 100% (if you want them to work with full speed).
Anyway, what seems to be a problem for you with SpeedFan configuration?

I tried lowering the Fan speed but nothing happend. So I was thinking there need to be some tweaking either in bios or in the apps settings.

I assume you have MSI 790FX-GD70 motherboard.
I don't use this software but it is possible (but I don't think so) that sensor chip on this mobo doesn't support software control for speed of fans you have installed in your case.

There is a list of MSI motherboard which support fan speed regulation:

I can't see MSI 790FX-GD70 motherboard on that list. So, maybe that's a problem?

There is a list of applications at Wikipedia (at the bottom of the page)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fan_control#Software

For MSI motherboards you can try this one (but I have never used it!):

Core Center -->
http://www.softpedia.com/get/Tweak/S...e-Center.shtml

updated version --> http://www.techspot.com/downloads/91...re-center.html

Maybe you'll have more luck with it.

CC gives me the error saying failed to load Hardware Monitor driver must be loaded. Which in bios I think there is no option to load or uncheck it.
Besides this app is 3 years old. Don't MSI have something new?

Maybe I shouldn't have to recommend you any software which I haven't personally tested.

Here is a updated version http://www.techspot.com/downloads/91...re-center.html

Well, as far as I know if you don't want to have any problems with fan speed controlling you will have to buy yourself Hardware Fan Controller ...
like Scythe Kaza Server (which I own).

It depends also on how many fans you have in your system.
This Scythe Kaza Server supports up to 4 fans and has 4 thermal sensors (which is quite useful for monitoring temp of your HD or memory sticks).
