This review is from: MSI H61M-P31/W8 LGA 1155 Intel H61 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
Everything seems to function as intended.
Fan Speed settings are crazy. The CPU fan speed will drop to 0%, but the case fans are locked to a 50% minimum. This is crazy! Don't use this for your HTPC!
I bought this locally to repair a prefab desktop. It works fine, but the machine is much louder than it used to be, even after adjusting settings in the BIOS. Out of the factory, it barely made a whisper.
The case fans (sys1 and sys2) seemed to be locked at a 50% minimum in the BIOS and I can't control them manually with SpeedFan. I tried using the MSI ControlCenter software and the speed seems to be locked at 50% also. What a shame! Seems like a quality product otherwise.
