    Thank you for your quick response.
    windows boot time seems about right to me,i dont know why your fan is spinning at full speed though,even with latest bios,only cheap and sure way to solve it would to purchase a cheap fan controller and control it that way,i have one installed and works great with all my case fans but you can attach cpu fan too

    C1 x3 is normal when overclocking, the board checks the settings a few times before it applies them.

    Your fan issue may just be the type of fan you are using, it may not work properly with PWM or the voltages put out by the CPU header. Did you try Voltage control too?

    The thing is the PC is not OCed. I get ~17sec til it starts booting in Windows not till Windows finish booting. From power button till Windows 7 it's about ~24sec. It's ok but I thought it will be faster.

    About the Fan i don't know. NoiseBlocker is a good German Fan but it may be RMA (both of them). I'll try to send them for change.

    On Voltage is better but still noisy. It would be best if I could manage the speed of the Fans from Bios but it seems that current version does not have this option (yet). Mabey in the future... :)

    Thank you.

    Ahh ok, well then your settings are not correct for your hardware. Please give me your full specs and current settings in a template from my signature and I will advise.

    Gigabyte boards board slow, just something you have to get used to. This time is increased if you use AHCI or RAID, also if you do not go into standard CMOS and then into each channel you are not using at set auto to NONE.

    The Fans should be managed by the BIOS based on your CPU temperature, so if it is hot then the fans will run at a higher speed 12V instead of 7V

    Hi sygnus21,

    I have Smart Fan Enabled in the Bios but I do not want to use ET6 because of the rise in DCP Latency. I want Bios setup for Fan speed but for now there isn't this option. It would have been nice to set the voltage for the fans manually from Bios.
    I also used Noctua fans with UL adapters and the voltage varies based on CPU temp and they are almost quiet. But since I have PWM Fans I thought to use them as a better alternative. The problem is that I want to set them to a lower voltage from Bios and I can't so they work with high voltage even at ~40C for CPU.

    Page 27 (of my MB manual I believe...) is about MB power connection pins. I use 20+4 connector from PSU. I do not understand what to look for.

    Don't get me wrong, these are minor problems as I am very happy with my GigaByte MB. Very happy! This is a wonderful MB for what I do and I wouldn't look elsewhere. But since I've seen this forum I thought to ask to be 100% pleased with it.

    Thank you for your answer.

    Hi Surround,

    I don't use Easy Tune, nor do I use any fan adapters. The page I referenced to is from the .PDF version of our board's manual (we have the same board), in the physical manual it would be page 28...

    Attachment 2690

    If you look at this post closely, you'll see that "Smart Fan" DOES vary the fan speed based on CPU temp. The requirement for the fan, as stated on page 28 is it "requires the use of a CPU fan with fan speed control design." Evidently my Noctua NF-P14 fan that comes with the cooler meets this requirement. Maybe yours does as well. You might also notice that "SYS_FAN2" also has a speed control on pin# 2, same as on the CPU header. Again, re-read my post - My New Computer. Impressed with the O/c. - Page 7 - Windows 7 Forums

    Good luck.
