Motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-8I945GZME-RH
So I went ahead and ordered the stuff I listed in this thread, and I went ahead and downloaded what manuals I could in order to plan ahead. In the MB manual, it looks like it can handle fan speed control based upon CPU temp. Likewise, the Zalman unit comes with an inline speed controller.
So, should I disable the MB control in bios and use the Zalman giblet; or omit said giblet, and use the Gigabyte smarts?
