I have a striker extreme, a e6700 and a zalman 9700 cooler.
The problem is that fan is always at 100% not matter what, even idling, its
the same, Speedfan did not control the speed, and
the q-fan option in bios does nothing to even reduce the speed, its always
Some fellow tell me to purchase a zalman fan controller, but i presume the
board must handle this type of issue, anyone can help me please.
The proc. its not overclocked and i have not any stability issues whatsoever.
The temps are ok thought.
Even with the case open the thing does not reduce its speed and its even more
loud that way !
Zalman "fan mate II" rpm adjusters will reduce the speed at least 50%. They come with some zalman heatsinks. Fry's sells them for about $7. You plug the heatsink fan lead into the fan mate II, and the fan mate II lead to any 3 pin plug on your motherboard.
