Speedfan with Gigabyte EP45-DS3L

I am having a hard time trying to control my fan speeds. I have tried changing different settings in the bios under pc health status to no avail. Any ideas? I am new to speedfan. Thanks

I am not really into the look of the K10 but the K7B looks pretty nice: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6811112154

From: P182 To: Solo or Lian Li?

The P182 is just too big, especially since I moved to a smaller space. I have had the solo before but was thinking about maybe trying a Lian Li since I have been using antecs for every case for years. I want something small but that still fits an ATX mobo and big graphics cards, and of course my xig...

hey, thought I would give an update. I tried disabling Legacy USB Storage in BIOS to no avail. I guess I either have a case of bad connectors on the case or its leads or a misbehaving mobo. I'm going to put this issue on the backburner for now, unless someone suggests something else, as I don't have...

P182 + Gigabyte Mobo + Front USB = Computer Won't Turn On

As the subject says...when I have the front usb header (there are two headers, I get the same behavior regardless which one I plug into) on my Gigabyte EP45-DS3L motherboard connected to the lead from my Antec P182 my computer will not start...I get nothing. Unplug it and everything works just fine....

After doing a lot of research into noise reduction materials I decided that the only way for me to reduce the noise in my already quiet P180 was to use noise absorption material. I did a lot of research on materials to use and the science behind it. Like lots.... it looks like you found a good solu...
