Fans are quieter than the OEM Intel fan. With it running on my bench i cannot really hear them, so in a case, they would be silent.I must admit this mobo interests me...but those two fans worry me. How loud are they (ie how 'bout a sneaky peaky )?
I do not see an option in the bios, still looking. But they can be easily unplugged.Can you disable the fans in the bios? or, short of that, unplug them? Seems to me they would be superfluous if you ever decide to watercool using the built-in barbs.
EDIT: Well, I see where the chipset fan is plugged in, but I can't see where the plug for the VRM fan is.
I generally do not play with multi-gpu setups. Not sure how i will test that feature. Anyone want to volunteer some cards? :biggrin:I don't like orange otherwise this would be the board I would buy. What are you using for videocards that you required the PLX chip?
Hoping to dig into this a bit over the next few weeks.Nice, I opted for the regular OC version.
Looking forward to seeing the review, and maybe some scores on the both34r::biggrin:
