I would stay away from asus when it comes to quiet sytems unless you want to use extra fan regulator.
Comparing Asus e-350/e-450 based boards DH61AG the Intel board is way quieter with the same fans.
I don't know if it has some knobs for regulation because it just worked. It is running the fans but you will notice only in a very quiet room.
I disagree, because if used properly, FanMate will achieve the quieter results. No matter what stock board performance may be or may not be quieter than other boards@stock.
