I also have an MSI BigBang XPower. i have used my 930, in both motherboards. with the XPower MotherBoard, the "CPU" temp rised and fell slowly, and always came about 10 degrees short of the core temps at full load. with the new 1102 bios this is now how my rampage III Extreme responds. it is now acting exactly the same as my MSI board, and i think this may be the way it is supposed to responmd. and it has not "Stuck" at a random temp yet. and because the cpu temp is no longer sticky the QFan is working very well like it should. i like the manual mode because you can set your temps and load%. i have always used Asus QFan because it is the best on board fan controll i have ever used. and as long as your cpu temp works correctly it is very reliable and safe and a great way to reduce noise when your cpu is not doing very much. ie, typing on this forum.
i was just curious if this is how the cpu temp is responding for everyone now who is useing the 1102 bios. so far people have responded with single word answers like "works for me". please be more specific on how it works. describe your situation, otherwise your post is not very usefull to me.
not trying to be rude or anything. i like this forum and the people on it. you guys usually have alot of great info/knnowledge. anyway thanks in advance
CPU temp rising and falling slowly is not such a serious problem when the maximum temperature is only about 60ÂºC.
But here, in extreme situations, when the temperature can reach 80 or 90ÂºC, the CPU Temp takes many seconds or even a minute to achieve the correct level.
In this case, the use of the Q-Fan or Fan Xpert is still dangerous.
Quick response is an essential feature of an automatic PC cooling system, to try prevent a single degree rising.
I've always used Bios or SpeedFan automatic cooling. But SpeedFan also has problems and does not monitor the R3E fans yet (the developer is currently trying to resolve this).
So I'm using a manual switched 5V/OFF/12V control on all fans in this system:
