Hi. I currently run SABERTOOTH Z97 MARK 1 (SOCKET 1150) and have over time been experiencing all sorts of trouble. Slow boot times. Crashes, errors. I have installed all ASUS utilities as suggested for the mobo. When I attempted to uninstall AI Suite, things got worse. All fans ran full speed until I installed another software to take them down, now I have trouble controlling them properly or allowing them to control automatically. atkexComSvc.exe running 25% CPU. and other problems as well
So to the issue. I have bought a ROG-STRIX-Z390-F-GAMING I am now looking for information on which utilities, tools, software, firmware that is required for things to run smoothly. I am also looking for which of the above to avoid. And which does not matter. For example I read a lot of people have issues with AI Suite. Also AURA seems problematic at the time? I also see things recommended such as Armoury Crate and Sonic Studio III. In AI Suite i see Dual Intelligent Processors, EZ Update, System Information.
Seems like a long list can be built here.
I am interested in a build that works properly, tired of having to figure out problems. So for example, is anything required to allow the fans to increase/decrease depending on temps?
