    B550 Aorus Elite XMP

    I haven't had the chance to try an updated BIOS yet. It's not an old board though, being revision 2. Profile 1 should already be enough as it explicitly states 3200MHz at 1.35V which is what the memory is supposed to run at. It's absolutely not time for an Asus board. Everyone has their own...

    B550 Aorus Elite XMP

    "Dual 1064.5Mhz" is what CPUZ reads. I get similar readouts from tools like HWInfo.

    B550 Aorus Elite XMP

    Same result at 1.4V - also tried manually changing the timings from 15-15-15-36 set automatically to the 16-18-18-36 advised by Corsair, to no avail.

    B550 Aorus Elite XMP

    After having run this machine for a while I only recently noticed XMP was not enabled. A month or two back I did RMA my previous board (needlessly), shortly before I discovered the issue with Ryzen CPUs and USB disconnections, so it's possible XMP was running on the previous board, just not this...

    Alternatives to Corsair Commander?

    For now, that's absolutely the case, hence why the side fans have been left disconnected since I dropped down to a single GPU a few years back. Even an RTX3090 isn't going to be putting out the sort of heat that the old 4-GPU setup I used to run would have done, but since it'll be blowing far...

    Alternatives to Corsair Commander?

    There are 10 fans in total - 2 on the CPU cooler, 1 at the front, 1 at the rear, 2 at the top and 4 at the side. The front, rear and 2 CPU fans are currently connected to the board's fan headers already, which would leave the remaining connector to deal with all the other (currently...

    Alternatives to Corsair Commander?

    Yes, that's what I'm using in lieu of a separate fan controller, see above. I'm returning the Quadro because it's of no benefit to me without voltage support. I could replace all my fans with PWM versions (except the front one as I'm not sure such a thing exists in PWM form) but that seems just...

    Alternatives to Corsair Commander?

    What can I say, I've had countless fan controllers over the years (because most of them weren't very good!) and every one has supported voltage-based control until now, I'd never seen a fan controller that only worked off PWM before. This is on the system with the B550 Aorus Elite. Once upon a...

    Alternatives to Corsair Commander?

    OK my previous post was a bit reactionary, but I am beyond frustrated with trying to get a separate fan controller to do what motherboards now do flawlessly. After querying this with Aquacomputer, seemingly the Quadro units (and all the associated products) are PWM-only, and have no voltage...

    Alternatives to Corsair Commander?

    A bit of a thread necro, I finally got the Quadro & splitter units installed. Alas, they do not work :( Two of the four fans I connected as a test were detected, but the speed is not adjustable and the rpm values are wrong. If I wanted every fan running 100% all the time, I could have just used...

    Alternatives to Corsair Commander?

    No worries, I don't have free shipping with OcUK so I haven't really paid much more with Amazon, and given my experience with the Corsair (and another unrelated DOA component in the same order), Amazon's simple return experience is worth having!

    Alternatives to Corsair Commander?

    Considered the Octo and ideally would have gone with it but I don't like the idea of paying 30 EUR for shipping a tiny little fan controller from Germany, so went with what was available on Amazon UK and ordered a Quadro and two Splitty9 units. That way I can group the block of 4 side fans into...

    Alternatives to Corsair Commander?

    Yeah looks the same as the Octo but a 4-port version - I might try and find somewhere else that stocks it rather than ordering it directly from Germany, but if needs must, that's what I'll do.

    Alternatives to Corsair Commander?

    Sadly not, only the CPU fans are PWM controlled. The front and rear are the stock 230/140 fans respectively that come with the HAF932 case, the side and top are 120mm Scythe SlipStreams.

    Yeah drilling holes is no adhesive pad though is it ;) I'm intrigued by the concept of the Octo...
