I control my fans in the BIOS. No software needed. Need to monitor there are heaps of programs free without spelling errors or problems.
Want to buy one Aida64 is pretty awesome.
In Aisuite the fan calibration is well done IMO, nothing bad to say.
In my attempts of becoming "fan expert" it appeared bios is more limited on min speed of fans compared to ai suite.
Also I assumed they use propietary code+interface to control fans.
Some engineers surely are/were fan experts in there. Fan software had some bugs , but nothing catastrophic.
Also need to control voltages as the product marketing claimed.
It didn't say , you control for 5 years and then we screw it up in hopes consumer will buy new products that will probably also get screwed at later stages.https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?119517-Rampage-V-won-t-apply-ram-amp-cpu-voltages
6+ years and the board in still not running stable software...
I thought it would get fixed over time. But appears to be getting worse.
Lately it seems software tries to control user, by directing toward idea of new build, instead of user controlling the software to fill it's purpose.
I don't want new build with all the confg hustles every 5 years . I prefer to install once make memory clone and just restore 1000times if needed...
That's why I got this board 6+ years ago, to build/config less.
But it has been mess to work with....... Requiring constant fixes after most updates.
How can I trust ASUS that new boards are better if old stuff is not even stable?
That's probably last time I'm getting ASUS gaming MB for workstation pc.
Gaming+Asus = ROG = unreliable .
If their flagship product is so poor.
Also I worked with maximus board few years ago, it seemed like shared codebase to R5E and also worked poor.
At that time it was relatively new , I hoped it gets fixed with time.
R5E is not new anymore......but still not refined.
Is it just gaming series flagship models or all models that allow increased configuration possibility?
Will the forum bugs get fixed?
