Asus QFan

  User-7A745D18-AA77-4264-9D17E76CC8A1664E 19:42 27 Feb 2003

I have an Asus A7V333 board and as with most of the more recent boards from them, there is an option in the BIOS for enabling Asus QFan.

I would be interested in hearing from anyone who has enabled this option and whether it has any real impact as my fan is rather noisy. I don't want to run the risk of overheating which is why I haven't tried it yet.

Many thanks.

What it does is to slow down the fans in a standby state, i.e. when your pc is not in use as much.

The idea is that it reduces them enough to work efficiently but with less noise - it kinda balances noise/performance

And it does work - especialy if you leave PC on all day downloadin it controls the fans, but as soon as you touch a key or instigate a process you can hear them kick in!
