GB Utilities won't run.....
Please enable/unhide manual control on the chipset PCH fan for god's sake!, why is so hard? MSI has it literally since day 1.
I paid roughly $500 to not have real control of something so absolutely basic like the chipset fan?
I'm literally starting to regret my trust with Gigabyte considering the fact that they don't even give a proper reason on why they decided to hide that option to all users like if is it something extremely dangerous to touch, but hey, wanna set the CPU cooler to 0% on SIV so it throttles utils shutdown? No problem with that.
I can hear what I *think* is the chipset fan, every now and then, if I really listen for it. Box is two feet away, side cover on, and it seems I can hear it *ramping* (up & down?) very softly--just loud enough to be slightly irritating, on the bare cusp
of audio detection--when I can hear it at all, that is. But if my central AC is moving air quietly from a nearby floor vent, I pretty much can't hear it at all, and if I have my headphones on--fogetaboudit
pch fan?) As you can see, of the few issues I have (more on that in a second) with my x570 Master, this one is certainly the least bothersome or annoying.
So what "issues" do I have
, then? Well, mainly this: not a single Aorus Master software utility actually works right now in my version of Win10
(see sig.) Even in the version of Win10 I had installed two months ago when I first ran the motherboard, I got into SIV once or twice
before it stopped working--but that's about it. It's possible that the RGB app functions in line with expectations--but....I could care less about that. Ugh... SIV
simply doesn't work at all--when I try and install and run it, it drops into a "trying to start EasyTune engine service
" loop from which it never recovers. Have to TaskManage
it closed to break the loop and then carefully uninstall it--this happens even though SIV
has nothing to do with EasyTune
and even if EasyTune is not installed!
Go figure!--you tell me.
Which of course is always true since Easy Tune itself refuses to run
, and also goes into the "Trying to start EasyTune Engine service" infinite loop--rinse and repeat. Running the apps as Administrator or/and with a variety of compatibility settings accomplishes nothing. (BTW, installing the required environment for the utilities first
, the App Center
, makes no difference at all, sorry to say. The utilities install but won't run.)
It would be nice if a couple of these utilities actually functioned like they are supposed to, I agree. Even though these motherboards have only been out a little over two months (time flies when we have fun, right?...
) and it may be premature at this point to expect working utility software from third parties at this date, it would surely be nice if we could get a couple of these apps working until third parties can come to the rescue.
Being fair, even though these apps are worthless to me at present because they won't even run, let alone do their intended tasks
, I have to confess that I really don't need
any of them to operate my x570 Aorus Master....
None of us do. But it would surely be nice if the software worked
, wouldn't it? I can agree with you 100% about that.
