    Hey man, I’m having the EXACT same problem. Infuriating!!!!!! Why can’t ASUS get a simple software suite to work properly…. I spent an hour getting my PC running awesome, then I reboot and find it running noisy again…. Have you worked anything out?

    I’ve created a Fan profile in AI Suite II => Fan Export 2 and now I want it to load during Windows start up. But it doesn’t use the created profile, always the default profile.
    Every time I start Windows I have to click: AI Suite II (From the notification Area) => Fan Expert 2 => Load Profile => Select the profile => Ok => Close AI Suite II.
    Is there a way to automatically load my Profile during Windows startup?
    Motherboard: Asus Maximus Gene V

    It’s not about seriousnes, but effectivness^flexibility. With fan controller you have to play with it everytime temps in your case change. With preset profiles you don’t have to do anything.

    can i use this software also on the rog board(gene V)???

    I have a P8 Z68 M motherboard, anyone know where I can get a backplate for it? I mean the metal shield on the back that houses the I/O, USB etc ports…Thanks

    UEFI has nearly the same options, you just have to manually enter all of the parameters yourself. Takes loads more time, but it’s available in there anyways.

  14. Incaensio 2:44 am 4/10 of 2012

    you can easily go into the bios and set it to ignore the minimum rpm for the cpu fan and then you’ll never see that warning again, it’s under the Monitor section in the Advanced tab of the UEFI bios.

    I love how there are mac elitists on asus’ videos about desktops and laptops but when it comes to hardware, they probably feel lost and confused and they can’t say “OMG MAC SO GUD N ASUS SO BAS!!!11!!1″ because they don’t know shit about computers

    I purchased an ASUS P8Z68-V GEN3 board less than 5 months ago… Can I upgrade my ASUS AI Suite II to include this new fan control software?

  18. schakal42 4:58 am 4/10 of 2012

    Do all Boards of the P8Z77 series support Fan Xpert 2? Because the website states on all the cheaper boards up to the P8Z77 V LE that they just have Fan Xpert+. Only the high-priced boards starting from the P8Z77 V list Fan Xpert 2 in their specs. But I don’t need wifi, dozens of USB, SATA, VGA and Sound ports etc. I basically just need a P8Z77 M Pro but with Fan Xpert 2 and one old PCI-Slot. Oh and can you also control the one 3pin-fan on boards like the P8Z77V LE/LX?

    ASUS =The greek god of motherboards

    I never knew people took fan customization so seriously. o_O

  21. 1upAce 5:56 am 4/10 of 2012

    my error with the asus board is mostly the cpu fan falling bevlow a certain RPM that causes my computer to say CPU FAN ERROR. real weird

  22. dvinenova 6:10 am 4/10 of 2012

    I have 4 fan including the CPU fan connected to the fan headers manually customized graphs for all my fans, saved them into a profile.

    However, everytime I reboot my machine or power it on, CPU fan and ChassisFan1 loses their settings and are reverted back to a default, this problem however does not happen to the 3rd and 4th fans on my machine.
    I have also tried disabling Q-fan for all 4 fans in the BIOS, but this problem is still there.
    I am running version 1.00.13 BIOS firmware 0906 P8Z77-V

    Asus this is a great software package in all but if it isn’t available to use in the UEFI then its useless to us Linux users…
