    fan xpert

    Is there anyway to use the fan xpert 4 without installing Ai suite 3? I am asking because I am reinstalling everything on my computer as I just got another evo 960 and went raid 0. I don't want any of the other stuff on ai suite 3.

    I have the same question. Seems after Fall Creators Update Win10 there's trouble with certain features like DIP and I really only want to monitor and control fans.

    It's been a while since I installed AI Suite, but I thought(?) You could choose which utilities you wanted to install with it.

    On my R5E, the AI Suite 3 vers 1.0.1.0 install went well under Windows Fall Creators Update (whew!). There were choices on what to install among the following:

    (1) Ai Charger
    (2) Dual Intelligent Processors 5 (DIP5)
    (3) EZ Update
    (4) Push Notice
    (5) System Information
    (6) USB 3.1 Boost
    (7) USB BIOS Flashback
    (8) USB Charger+
    (9) Wi-Fi Engine

    I installed items 2,3,5,6,9 only.

    Dual Intelligent Processors 5 is the "base" package and it bundles together FanXpert, 5-way Optimization, and other things as seen here:

    the items other than DIP5 can be accessed by clicking the little panel in the upper right:

    After I installed DIP5, it replaced my BIOS fan profiles with its defaults, but using FanXpert I was able to restore my fan profiles.

    To me, FanXpert by itself was worth installing Ai Suite 3.. For example, here is the CPU fan profile page:

    All is good for now but I dread the next major Windows update. Probably something like "Summer Anxiety Preview" or "Fall Disaster Update".
