Sorry if these are bad questions, I am a first time builder,

1) How do you open the program?

2) Does it always run in the background or do you need to be in Windows?

3) Is it worth possibly choosing an ASUS mobo for it or is there better third-party fan software?

Thanks for your answers in advance!

Hi,

1) Fan Xpert 2 is part of the AI Suite III package. So you'd need to install that and the Fan Xpert 2 module.

2) It runs as an applcation in Windows. UEFI (BIOS) handles fan speeds outside the OS, which is no big deal as by rights you should be spending most of your time in the OS.

3) The calibration aspect of Fan Xpert 2 is not available in third party control tools.

It's included with the motherboards - you can check the product page for the model you intend to purchase to confirm.

One last question - Is it only available on Windows? Or can I get it on Mac and Linux?

Hello, i have a question about the AI suite

I got half of the AI suite 2 cause i could not locate how to remove it compleetly so i manually deleted it and now the support fan 2 over the gpu is dead and im afraid the movo will overheat, so how can i re activate that fan again? I set it from disable to enable in bios, but that fan is still dead thanks to that darn AI suite..

And about AI suite 3, can i deavtivate it's warnings about voltage changes and auto shutdown? Cause the darn voltage rubbish shuts my pc down some times which was the reason why i wanted to get rid of it in the first place. Is the AI suite 3 different that way?


And about my motherboard which is a sabertooth Z77, it has 2x deffective usb 3.0 ports over the ethernet port, but they can power up stuff like my phone and hdd, but windows can't detect anything connected on it. Hopw can i fix this?

Lots of questions. You should have started a new thread, but here goes:


1) you can uninstall AI Suite completely if you wish. Use the AI Suite Cleaner AFTER uninstalling on the ROG forums

if you have AI Suite II use this one: http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?28319-AI-Suite...



2) The warnings usually happen if you are running other monitoring apps at the same time as Ai Suite - anything like CPU-Z, GPU Tweak, AIDA, HWinfo32 etc can cause AI Suite sensor warnings and lead to system shutdowns if the CPU Fan RPM reports 0. This happens when multiple software is polling the onboard super IO at the same time.

Navigate through AI suite and see if you can untick the boxes for the sensors - there is a part within the GUI. Failing that, just use on monitoring tool at a time - especially if using Fan Xpert.

You should not be using use AI Suite III on the Sabertooth Z77. Only AI Suite II. If you are trying to use it, you should not be. No support for you if you are using AI Suite III when you should not be.

3) Make sure you are using the latest USB 3.0 drivers from the ASUS support page. The latest UEFI and the latest AI Suite II. Uninstall AI SUite III from your system as well. Ai Suite III has different hardware requirements and power saving features for USB that are specific to the Z87 boards - it should not be used on Z77.

If that does not help, remove any OC (stock settings) and see if the USB ports work again after full CMOS clear and AC power cycle. If not, contact your local ASUS suport and tell them which devices you are plugging into the ports etc, and see if they suggest RMA etc.
