    I have to completely disagree with you.
    First order of business support software should be written around the hardware and drivers, not the other way.
    Secondly Just what do you think AI suite is? Its just another interface that reads and writes to the BIOS via MOBO connect.

    The fan control of AI suite is the least of the worries. Thats easy enough to take care of. Its the other options that are the problem. Personally I have an issue with anything that makes writes to the BIOS rom while the machine is posted to OS and running.

    Ive tried AI suite for fan control and it was mediocre at best. You could get it do run curves then crap yourself when out of nowhere all your fans go to 100% for no reason at all, curves are still present, then shut down and restart AI suite and its back to normal again.

    This is the least of my worries with AI suite. Its the other more involved things like CPU settings that are a huge problem and bricked a M8E. I gave it another try on a new build and kept getting BSODs and lock up caused 100% but one of the components of the installation and had precisely nothing to do with MEI.

    There are far better ways to control fans, pumps etc. Personally I went with aquaero and will never look back. Thats not the only choice though. Lots of controllers out there that are actually reliable, wont brick your machine, and wont flake out on you.

    Given the choice of AI Suite or BIOS, use the BIOS as its whats doing it anyhow. All AI suite is doing is using a software driven interface to modify the exact same parameters in the exact same registers in the BIOS rom.
