is it a good thing to let speedfan have the autmatic fans box ticked or should i not touch that?

I just want to fans in the cpu cooler to go higher as temps rise, or cant i contorl that?

I cant say anything about speedfan, havent used it in ages and tbh it is quite aged program allready to modern stuff like sandys I have my fans connected to fan controller so you better to as from someone else how the fan control of mobo works.

if you dont use speedfan to mon. temps, what do you use?

Well there are two different infinite boot problems. One was caused by the BIOS being corrupted on shipment, and having a hardware mismatch disagreement. (Causing constant reboots) This was resolved with bios 1.8b6+ I believe. (I'd have to go through all the forums again to verify.)

The second one is still occurring with a handful of boards, but it's being speculated that it's a memory problem specific to v1.8 BIOS which ships with the boards now. From what I've read, the recommendation is to download the new beta BIOS and flash even on a new board. If it's still looping, troubleshoot the memory sticks by having only one in and making sure it's in DIMM A1, etc.

The MSI boards are still a safe bet, although I am starting to question stability due to VRM issues. I'm trying to get my hands on an oscilloscope (or function analyzer) so I can see for myself what's going on with power being supplied in low/100% load states as it's taking an enormous amount of voltage for me to keep my computer 100% stable. If it weren't for Ivy Bridge coming out in a few months, I'd have switched over to an MIVE by now. (Don't get me wrong, MSI does have good boards for the money!)

From what I've gathered it's a hardware argument that occurs pre-windows and since it can't be resolved, it just keeps rebooting. It's similar to how the overclock safety feature allows it to reboot twice but not three times while testing stability. In this case, it appears that it's going past the threshold of three reboots, and not stopping. Memory has been blamed for this once again, but I wouldn't hold my breath until the manufacturer says so.

Download RealTemp. It's really accurate and has a nifty tray icon that lets you monitor temperatures at all times. Be sure to run the sensor test at least once. The Sandy Bridge club in my sig has a link to it still I believe.

Mostly i use coretemp or realtemp for cpu monitoring but i also have hwmonitor and aida64 ultimate edition installed if i need info/temps on other parts too.

I meant that all my fans are connected to manual 5.25 fan controller so cant say anything on motheboards own fan control and how it works, i dont have single fan plugged to mobo and havent even taked a look on fan control page in uefi

decided to post pics of the problem im having with bios to see if its something i am doing. also this is connected to a crt through a dvi/vga adapter. dont know if that would cause these problems but here are the images

If you set it to automatic control, you have to go to Configure > Temperatures > Core 0-3 and set desired temps on each. The desired temp is the point where the fans kick up to full speed.
Then you go to Speed and choose each of the fans and set their min and max speeds and tick "automatically variated".

Also, there's no control for fan connector 3 and 4, so you'll have to use CPU fan and Chassis 1 & 2.

I run all my 6 fans off the motherboard.

Noobie question here: What's the reason why some people can get higher overclocks at lower voltages? Better chips? I see a lot of people here doing 4.5 @ 1.2+ vcore. That was the first thing I tried when I got my gear setup (45multi + 1.28 vcore) and was greeted with a blue screen a few mins in prime95. Increasing it stopped the BSODs but errors started creeping up in prime. Only when I reached 1.32 was I able to run prime for hours without problem.

If only I was able to do it below 1.3, I would still be motivated to push the oc some more, but the temps I'm getting worry me so I'll stop at 4.5 and figure out why my rig likes to heat up so much
