Dumb question. Are you sure you have looked all over the bios control screens for an option that controls how the board handles fan control? haven't looked extremely thoroughly... been out of town for the last week so haven't been able to look at it. Plus, the VGA output on this board looks God-Awf...

Do you want a tower or a top down cooler?

I'm not against using active cooling on the cpu, it just has to be QUIET as this thing will be running all the time in my bedroom.

The OS is Windows 7 Professional. That is a Zotac board. Never used them before but it was the only choice I had at Microcent...
