    Default System Fan Speed Control - Silent

    The board in question is a G1 Sniper M3.

    In the BIOS there are settings for CPU and system fan speed. My question is regarding the System Fan Speed setting. It gives you four options:

    - Normal
    - Silent
    - Manual
    - Disabled

    Does 'Silent' mode adjust the speed according to system temps (like 'Normal', except with a lower top speed), or is the fan RPM fixed at a particular speed?

    I've never used Silent mode but I think the fans run at a constant but slow speed. Usually "Normal" is when they ramp up and down as needed. Why don't you just try it and see?

    From the Manual...

    Normal allows the CPU/system fan to run at diffrent speeds according to the CPU/system temperature. You can adjust the the fan speed with Easy Tune 6 based your ststems requirements.
    Silent allows the CPU/system fan to run at slow speeds.
    Manual allows you to control the CPU/system fan speed under the Slope PWM item.
    Disabled allows the CPU/system fan to run at full speeds.

    Looks like the only way to control the fans is under either Normal or Manual. Looks as though it will have to be a 4 pin connector also (PWM) for manual mode anyway.
