    It's allowed to run the Zalman CNPS7000A-AlC w/o fan mate 1 connected?
    Or will the fan to be damaged, because the max. output from the fan mate is
    11V but is the fan a 12 V model?

    I think it is no problem but you cannot adjust te fan speed anymore and that
    what is al about. Low fan speed > Low noise...

    Shouldn't be a problem at all. I have nearly the same cooler (except mine
    being the copper one) and didn't even bother installing the fan mate. Like
    Driekes stated you won't be able to control the fan speed but if it's
    important to you, depending on what type of MB you have you can use q-fan or
    some other setting in the bios to control fan speed.

    I run mine direct from the CPU header, so it runs at 12V. I keep
    Q-fan disabled.

    In the manual for the "B" version, it says:

    "Fan speed of 2500 RPM can be obtained by directly connecting 3 pin
    fan connector to motherboard. (Without Fan Controller)"

    Thanks for your answer.
    Yes, I've q-fan as BIOS option.
    I'll try it to see how quiet it's with q-fan.

    Fan mate 1 annihilates only power (a heater), Q-fan is probably more
    Thanks for the link.
    I hope the fan motor is the same as in the A version.

    It isn't. :-(
    The minimal RPM with Q-fan is about 2150 RPM and at higher temperatures the
    RPM won't go faster. :-(
    I've reinstalled the fan mate 1 and adjusted to about 1600 RPM.

    Yes, it works.
    No damage.

    I'll try how Q-fan works w/o fan mate 1.
    The graph on the Asus site (don't recall the URL) showed that the QFan
    didn't even kick in until the CPU hit 60'C! That's a bit much for me. I'd
    rather it kick in a lot lower and ramp up more gradually.

    Qfan set at 11/16 and using the FanMate at low the CPU is currently at 33'C
    (case 32'C) at 1500rpm. CPU is 2.6Ghz (800) clocked just over 3.1Ghz.

    .... time let Hoyle idle for a while and see how hot it gets.

    After 10 minutes CPU wouldn't go any hotter that 49'C with case at 33'C. Fan
    RPM didn't vary at all. (actually it hovered around 1470rpm).

    I find that my PC and the wifes PC will crash once we get around 52'C, but
    none of my apps push the computer that hard. CPU is down to 38'C within 60
    seconds of closing Hoyle.

    In the manual I have here, the Winbond 83627THF is there, and it
    has three 5V analog type fan control channels. But if you look near
    the CPU fan header, there is no big transistor or MOSFET to
    control the fan, so the necessary control device is missing.
    (Unless the transistors are hidden in a non-standard place...)

    You could play with this program, but don't expect a miracle
    if there are no transistors on the board to drive the fans :)
    The program might pretend to adjust the fans, but if the speed
    doesn't change, then you will know the transistors are missing. (chip list)

    I also was thinking about the hardware that is missing. To bad... About the
    program, I installed it on my A7N8X-X board (2700+, stock cooler) and the
    cpu temp was rising right away (to very temps above 56 degree c). I heard no
    noise reduction so I removed it.

    I don't understand why Asus doesn't support it to al boards. I saw in
    AsusWorld magazine that only the newest boards (and fully equiped boards)
    support Q-Fan2. Also the chassis fan is controlled. I bit late I think, all
    the Compaq/hp machine's (even the Presarios) are supporting that for a year
    or longer... And yes, there is an Asus or MSI (%$*$$$) board is installed.

    Did you see the note near the bottom of the speedfan.php page ?

    "The latest version is SpeedFan 4.14

    NOTE: Some download accelerators may fail downloading. Try
    without them. NOTE: Norton Internet Security blocks the
    REFERER field. Download won't work without the proper REFERER

    So, apparently the author knows about the problem.

    When I tried, I got a 1,437,117 byte file for 4.14.

    Here is a mirror site:
    The file from was 1,437,117 bytes and
    has the same checksum as the one from .
