    Unhappy is there any alternative to Easytune to change fan settings from Windows on P35-DS4?

    the 'SmartFan' setting in the bios ramps up the CPU fan far too slowly for my liking under load
    so i have gotten teh Smartfan function on the 'Easytune' program to work for changing the fan speed
    but to do that, i have to hit the '%' button approximately 50 times with the mouse cursor to increase it where the fan runs close to full speed
    you cant even hold the button down to increase it...some programming there
    I have tried programs like Smartfan, but they only seem to work for computers/fans with that PWM setup
    So, im looking for a way to...
    1) disable/enable 'Smartfan' function from the bios under Windows so i can run full CPU fan during games
    or
    2) a way to change the fan speed under Windows without clicking on Eazytune settings 50 times
    I just want to set the CPU fan to max during games, and then at the regular smartfan settings while im trying to sleep, without having to reboot :p

    I am VERY disappointed in the current BIOS 'smartfan' options...it should ramp up alot faster than it does
    thanks for any help :)

    i would not use no fan header on a gigabyte board more stable that way
    i'd get a fan controler if i were you

    Dear f-town

    If you enable SmartFan the system will auto control your cpu fan by your cpu loading.
    So, when you play game, your CPU useage is higher, so that it will run your fan in full speed, and while you are sleep and didn't anything with your computer, the CPU ran in low loading. CPU fan will run in low speen.didn't it work?

    it works, but the fan speed ramps up much too slowly...
    what is the desired temperature here, 75C or something?
    also the fan never reaches full speed as far as i can tell...seems 80% is about the maximum
    i can only hope that there might be some bios setting in the future to allow adjustment of the smartfan settings in the future...

    Mr. F-town,
    I'd dump the easy Pune completely, as this thing can't even read system info right. And also cause any tool that over clocks in the GUI is a POS. That being said I'd suggest using Rivatuner or speed fan. Also the "hook" for programs to read system info were left out of the 680 platforum.
    Good luck!

    I have same cooler in my system, and it works like **** with F8 bios.
    No FULL speed here also, and ET5 is pure crap.
    I have reported this already in another thread, but GigaByte's support is like "are u suuuuure u have done this and that...".

    Dear Xinot

    If it is passible, I wish I can go to your place to see what happened in your system, but sorry I can't, so i have to make sure some thing in order to know what happened. Yes maybe you feel that mean we don't trust you. but sorry we have to.

    If you do the same job someday, you will know what I mean...., please forgive.

    Sry. I didnt want that sound like i was whining, but i was soo frustrated.

    Anyway, i flashed F9M in my mobo, and now my cpu cooler fan is working fine again. Theres also "loadline calibration" option to core voltage.
    Im testing this bios and report here if have any other pros/cons.
    Thank You Janus!

    i have tried F9m on my board, and it did in fact work
    Smartfan is in fact working again as promised :)
    theres a few new bios settings including 'load line calibration', which i think is similar to that setting on Asus boards to prevent Vdroop :D
