Software Control My Fans: Does any hardware exist
Hey Guys,
Again, a question for my fried circuit friends.
I had a Asus Mobo, wich coltrolled my fans in an intelligent way:
Hot cpu = fast spinning fan
Slow cpu =quiet slow fan

You get the picture...

Recently my AGP slot died on me, solutions=new motherboard.

I tough the new motherboard (GigaByte GA-8IPE100-G rev4) supported this feature allso, but as it turns out, i only monitors the speed and temprature of the components in my case.

Does a piece of hardware exist wich will allow me to control my fans with software (speedfan) or let speedfan controll the fans automatically, so that i have my peace and rest back?

Thanks in advance guys!

Some more questions about the product:
Do i need to use the software provided, or can i use speedfan?
Do i have to use the provided temp sensors, or can i use the ones provided by the mobo?

Speedfan will work with your motherboard sensors & fan headers; some motherboards play better with Speedfan than others, try it out.

the T-Balancer is a solution which does not rely on your motherboard to keep the fans running silent / fast when needed. It works on its own and can be configured to your likings.

Ok let me try to ask the same question again, but this time in the right way:

IF i buy the M-Cubed Fan Controller
1-can i:

Use speedfan instead to control my fans via the fan controller, so can i use speedfan and not the piece of software that comes with te controller

2-Do i:

Have to install all these temp probes, or can i just use the temprature readouts delivered by the sensors allready on my motherboard/harddrive/cpu?

(oh, and is this the only product that can enable me to controll my fans the way i used to do with my old MOBO)?
Thanks again

1) no, you need to use the Mcubed software
2) no you don't need to install ALL probes
3) I have not seen another software controlled fan controller yet

Could you recommend some other solutions that control my fans in a semi-automatic / intelligent way, like my old (and old other mobo's except mine) used to do?

DFI nF4 Ultra and SLI boards provide software control using onboard sensors for upto 3 fans: CPU, Fan, PWMIC. While the CPU fan header is a must to control shut down;the others are for your own pleasure :)

Correction- CPU; Chipset and PWMIC.

The chipet may not be used for other purpose.
