Yeah, I know what you mean about the tug of war thing, will the board overide the manual setting or will the controller overide the board ? this is the question.
I think the wise way forward would be to connect up the fans as normall and when up & running check the BIOS to see if the fans can be disabled, if they can
then I am on a winner, i can disable and put everything through the Scythe 4 fan controller on the front. I am quite consistent with my computing, I want to be able to fine tune the system when I know its under the most load that I will put on it and get the system temps and fan speeds right on. The Scythe has an
alarm feature so I am not worried about cooking anything, The CPU temp sensing wire will go on the side of my TRUE heatsink as close to the CPU as possible.
Would you agree that this is the sensible aproach ?
