Just purchased a new system - I love this motherboard. My only question is when I start or wake up my computer, my cpu fan sounds like a jet engine for a few seconds.. then it slows down and is quiet. How can I prevent this from happening? I have a stock fan and 3570k.
You can go into the BIOS and set the CPU fan speed to 1 and the target tempt to 60C. That'll keep the fan spun down even at POST. I have the same mobo (but with a 212 Evo cooler) and it's inaudible over the case and GPU fan.
