I think it needs to start after mbm finishes... of course this is just a guess... I think I am going to create a startup script and see if it starts better.... that is the only time I get a hang... other problem I ran into was that I had to slow the machine down... I was running at 12.5 * 175 @ 1.52...

Can you change the PWM frequency on the Zephyrus? Not sure... I do not see anything about it... the only thing I can control is fan percentage... So the Nexus fans run quiet under PWM... how far can you throttle them... I can get the FBA08A12M's running at 30%... I would have no problem swaping out...

Anyway...me back to fixing mode :( my problem with the software is hibernati...

The fans did not hum at all when run at full power... The hum when touching the case seems to come from the fan inself... I was reading some other posts about Attenuators... will they help??? or is this a lost cause... I am really scratching my head over this.... I am thinking I should just get some...

I am running it again right now without mbm running but if they are off they are off everywhere... I assume what I see in the bios is the most accurate... is this correct?? I had this overclocked before and the CPU temp was higher then... so I think what I am reporting is accurate...

I tried rebooting right after to check the bios and it is the same as Mother Moard Monitor... might be the differnce between moble C...

thanks for all you ideas and comments... this really helps I really like the idea about flipping the power supply... getting outside air to cool it would make life much easier.... I would only worry about exhaust without it pulling air from the case... the two 60'2 will have there work cut out for t...
