as per title: Can fan xpert 1 control 3 pin case fans? i've read that fan xpert II can, but i'm not sure about fan xpert I (i have and will soon be installing maximus iv gene z/ gen3 which comes with ai suite II, not III which has 3 pin fan control-ability in fan xpert II)

Yes, you can control 3 pin fans using Fan Xpert.

are you sure? done a bit of research now. i've read that fan xpert and fan xpert+ doesn't have the ability to control 3 pin fans, only fan xpert II does, which is included in asus ai suite III. aisIII is only available for version rog vi mobo's. mine's a version iv. there is a thread where some people got aisIII working on older boards, but DC control over fans is hardware based so even IF i could get aisIII to work, it's HIGHLY probable that fan control would still not work.

Fan Xpert controls 3 pin fans via Duty Mode.
