Hey folks,

I'm having a little bit of a hard time setting up a case fan control profile using Asus Fan Xpert (not II). This is my wife's system, hardware details are as follows:
- Motherboard: Asus P5QL Pro
- Case Fans: 2 x Vantec Stealth 90mm 3-pin (model #SF9225L)
- Connection: Both fans connected using a Y-splitter to CHA_FAN motherboard connection

Both the BIOS fan monitoring as well as Fan Xpert have no problem reporting the speed of the case fans (~1800 rpm):

However, when I go to try set up a profile for the case fan, I notice that the fan selection drop down list only contains the CPU Fan, it doesn't appear to list the case fans:

Is this a software limitation of Fan Xpert? I don't imagine it would be otherwise why bother having a dropdown there if it's not going to work (and I don't think I could use Fan Xpert II as it's generally available with motherboard specific tools/drivers). It obviously works with 3-pin fans as I can set a profile for the CPU Fan without a problem. Anyone have any ideas as to what's going on here?

As of yet, no, I have not.

Good idea, I'll have to try it out. Will report back on it.

In case, don't forget to give a look to the relevant SPCR Guide.

I wonder if Asus Fan Xpert II would work, it is known to be compatible with some older motherboads originally bundled with Xpert I.

you must be sure to scrub all remnants of xpert 1 and asus suite before attempting this.

Do you think I'm safe to try SpeedFan without uninstalling Fan Xpert I (assuming of course I terminate any Fan Xpert processes before trying SpeedFan)? It would certainly be a bit more straightforward to test that way without installing/reinstalling a number of times.
