    So no information available on if Legasy fan is in the BIOS or not?

    FYI.

    I recently upgraded from a GA-P35-DS3L to a GA-EP45-DS3L. I also had a 3 pin fan cpu fan that was throttled by the BIOS properly (via voltage) on the P style board. The EP style board appears is missing this option in the BIOS, and my fan just runs at full speed since it is not a 4 pin.

    Quite annoying to "upgrade" and lose features.

    Any word on this being re-added to the EP series BIOS in an update? :)

    My EP45 has Smart fan mode (Voltage, Auto, or PWM)

    I looked at your manual, and it seems only the DS4 and above have this feature now, but you can control the fan Via EasyTune if you enable smart fan control

    Thanks for the response.

    Unfortunately, it appears SpeedFan is also limited to the PWM 4-Pin fan control only. It's really a shame that this option appears to be removed, my $50 heatsink/fan combo is now just a jet engine...

    You could get a Fan controller for $10 or so

    I mentioned Easytune not speedfan, did you try ET? With Smart enabled in the BIOS?

    Oops. I had just started up SpeedFan, so I typed that by mistake. What I should have said was that I tried EasyTune6 and played with the Smart Fan controls with no luck. The BIOS has the smart fan enabled, but it still does not work without the 4th PIN.

    I do have a simple fan controller, but I really would prefer not to be responsible for turning it up and down as the load increases. I don't trust other users of this machine to know when it can be increased/decreased. I much prefer the motherboard handling the fan control.

    I may just see if I can downgrade to a used P35-DS3L to get that feature back. I was just hoping that a BIOS update might be available so that I wouldn't have to.

    Thanks again for your help!

    Ahh, well at least you did try. As for it being added back in a future BIOS, I am not sure. Have you contacted Gigabyte support via email and asked about this? They will let you know if anyone is thinking of adding it back >>>

    Sorry I cannot be of more help with this. Hey, did you try all older BIOS's that support your CPU? One of them may still have it in there, just a thought

    Well I though janus was checking into this but apparently he never got back to us in this thread.
