    Could you clarify when you say optimization? Is there a specific button or feature?

    I tried 50, 40, and 20, and get no error message at all. Maybe you need to do a reset. Or maybe it is something specific to the M8H as I have the Hero Alpha.

    In Q-fan control, there is an optimize all button. Don't have screenshot of it, but you can see it on op's post. Click it and it runs a test of all your fans, figuring out the lowest speed they work at.

    I did tons of resets.
    Actually, the system behaves strangely: Only at the very first start (right after i flashed the BIOS or cleared CMOS) i am able to set that value to lower than 60 (20 in my ideal case), but right after exiting the utility it goes up to 60 and that's it.

    Why not.
    Maybe someone else can test the 3504 and confirm it?

    ::EDIT::

    I did a video of how it looks like, mb this would explain it better:

    Sorry for the quality. I do not have any specific equipment

    Same problem here but slightly different.

    Normally my fans spin around 24% (PWM Mode). I can change the preferred value for the first time after the BIOS update from 3401 to 3504. However after a restart, the fans are set to 38%. Lowering the fanspeed is impossible, even after a restart. Not quite sure, but seems is to be a bug.
