post #1671 of 2087
If anyone know how the fan controls work in the bios for this board, I have a few questions that I want to ask.

Update: Nevermind the disappearing fans, this issue seem to have been fixed.

Not sure what to think about the one fan that sometimes do not start up on boot. I have now disabled the fan controls in the bios, but I have also used the Fan software with AI Suite II, and hm well if I am unlucky then these two control options are basicly the same. The idea was to preferably have all spin up normally on boot, and then the software could kick in on loading windows, so that the speed is reduced.

Not too happy about the fan control but I will have to see how it works out.

I rearranged the fans, so that I could use the software with AI Suite II. The software apparanly only allows control of "cpu fan" and "chassis fan", thus not the "opt" fans. Moving my other cpu fans onto the "chassis" fan headers allowed for the software to control them in windows.

I use a non-admin account together with the admin one, and I am annoyed by how the AI Suite II pops up on every boot asking for admin password. I have UAC enabled and was hoping software could be set to run automatically. Though in my experience I don't want to get my hopes up. For example, I never figures out how to any cpu or temp monitoring software to run on auto with the UAC enabled. Mighty annoying.

<-- Is upset and confused about the lack of information about the proper reading of cpu's for determining safe operating temperatures.

I did find this webpage which seem to clear up some aspects of it all: http://www.techreaction.net/2009/10/14/guide-to-understanding-intel-temperatures/

So i finally got AI Suite II installed and hooked my 3 fans that run at 2,000rpm's ( back cause exhaust, 3rd fan on my NH- D14 and bottom case intake fan ). If i choose silent mode under fan Xpert they drop to 1,100-1,200rmp range and my pc is barely louder than my GF's lap top. I can also just dissable the fan controle when i want to do some seriously intense CPU things but in normal gaming and such ill never nead too. Im so glad i read about Fan Xpert in these forums. Thank you so much guys. I cant beleive i have a damn near silent pc now. Its terrific! Also thanks Asus for making the Maximus Extreme IV so versitile with hardware and software!

For what it is worth, I wouldn't worry about an A0 indication. Means "IDE initialization starting" or something. Had it myself I think the time I set up my computer with this new mainboard.

Hi,


I borked my mobo earlier, and I have the opportunity to get a second hand Asus Maximus IV Extreme for a good price.
Thing is it's been running an i7 2600k @ 5.0 Ghz on air for a month, does that sound like it would be detrimental to the board in any way?

Please forgive this cheeky post, thanks guys.

I thought A0 was the new AA, I read that somewhere on the ROG board.

I recently fitted 3 x NF-P14 fans on my cooler for which I bought a three way Y split powercable and this works nicely and the power requrement should be well within the allowed range (1A for the cpu header). I am ofc assuming the rest of the fan headers also have a 1A limit.

I could not get the cpu fan header to toggle speed at all with my three pin fans, however the bios fan control works when I connect to one of the chassis fan headers.

I have so far had no issues with the USB 3.0 ports and I am mightly pleased with that. Currently only my USB DAC is connected to one of my USB 3.0 ports. The keyboard and mouse are plugged into the spare USB 2 port hub thingy that came with the motherboard (is connected to one of the 10 pin internal USB 2 headers).
