^ But AI Suite is great! Just, don't run any other monitoring software, it's the same for all programs. Trying to hook multiple times = bad bad bad. These days you have near complete BIOS settings control from windows (the only thing really missing is memory divider), so you don't have to constantly reboot while in the testing stage. Asus is also second to none when it comes to fan control options, obviously you can do it from BIOS but having a windows app to do it is just as great. I would agree with you if you're talking about 2 generations ago however (890fx and P55), back then the software was pathetic.
Just hit your BIOS and disable the sensor in Hardware Monitoring.
