    I know you'd probably rather just stick to the board but you could always go with a nice fan controller. Generally they give you better control over your setup anyway and they look slick in a mod.

    Hey thanks for replying! I'm late, I wasn't subscribed to thread alert on new post.

    I don't know what to think about the few who said it was working with 3 pins fan. I'll stick that it doesn't work for me and that it will never work, not even with a BIOS update (the electronic needed being absent).

    So I had the Cooler V8... on the M4EZ...
    If you recall, this cooler has an actual knob to controll the speed and a three pin to the CPU fan header.
    FanXpert easily recognized the fast vs slow RPMs... as does bios.
    I think the OP needs a diff cooler wire set. nothing wrong with ASUS.

    ^^, To be polite but blunt you do not have a clue what your talking about and the issue has been verified by Asus STAFF if you even bothered to read this thread fully!

    Our Mobos cannot control non 4pin (PWM) fans speed!

    I'm using 4-pin PWM Scythe fans and they stay at 1000 rpm all the time on the Gene Z.

    seems to work on the CPU header, but not a chassis fan headers. Asus Fan Xpert can not build a profile on the chassis fans, only the CPU.

    Did you turn on control in the BIOS?
    Set both to normal, as then it will create a bit of extra negative static pressure which will blow dust out during boot.

    Also, to get it silent, open AI Suite 2 --> Tools --> Fan XPert
    and select "User"
    drag CPU down to 21%
    or Chassis down to 40%

    you might then want to start the CPU ramp up at 45oC
    and the Chassis ramp up at whatever works for you

    The good fans are the Arctic F8 and F12 Pro PWM, (any they are all good and very quiet.) (I did get one broken one that did not spin up, but I buy heaps of fans, they do have the cheapest price as well which is a bonus.. cheap to replace)
    the Entermax UCTB12P PWM (this one runs at really low revs which is cool.) (it also has sexy batwing blades, not that anyone will see them, lol) (the magnet in the Entermax is also strong, sticks mildly to my case if I lie it flat, probably a sign of quality)
    and probably the scythe slipstream PWM or Kama PWM, but there are report of the Kama lasting 6 months.. not sure about the slipstream.

    Arctic F12 runs at 800rpm as chassis on gene-z at 40%
    Arctic F12 runs at 750rpm as CPU on gene-z at 21%

    The Entermax I took out but that was uber low, I was going to put it back in tonight.

    Set to Max or manual if that does not work in Bios to try give control to SpeedFan (I ain't tried on this Mobo as not go PWM fans)!

    Speedfan Doesn't work with GENE-Z. Tried 4.44 and 4.45.

    Works for me with all the PWM fans I tried. I tried most, not scythe slipstream though.
