Hello,

I want to know how can I configure the chassis fans & smps fan so that their speed is shown in ASUS PC Probe or Lavalys. Currently they show 0 for chassis fans & SMPS fan.
I have 3 fans connected to Molex connectors. Two on the side & one on the back of the cabinet. They didn't come with the cabinet. I have myself connected them.

Another thing I want to know is how can I configure Chassis Intrusion Detection & what are its advantages. My motherboard supports Intrusion detection.

Lastly I want to know what exactly is AMD Live! or AMD Away Mode. I have enabled it in BIOS & driver is installed. But there is no option in Power Options in Windows(XP MCE or Vista Ultimate) for Away Mode.

I have this configuration:
AMD 64 X2 3800+ processor
ASUS M2NPV-MX motherboard

oh so these are connected directly to the PSU ? no u cant detect the speed then.it can be done if a fan is connected to the motherboard's aux fan slot.
And chasis intrusion detection is to detect if ur cabinet is open or closed.some cabinets have a biased switch connected to motherboard to detect ur case intrusion

I know if connected directly to PSU it won't show the RPM. What I want to know is where can I find connectors for motherboard's socket.

And chasis intrusion detection is to detect if ur cabinet is open or closed.some cabinets have a biased switch connected to motherboard to detect ur case intrusion
I want to know the detailed working.

Guys please help me on all these issues.

I want to know how can I connect the socket to the fan which can be connected to motherboard. And also about AMD Away Mode

Manual doesn't have any such information.

^^Yaar I've already checked wiki. I can't get AMD Away mode working in my XP MCE & Vista.

Thanks for the fan info :)

The fan speed detection is to be supported by the fan itself. If you haf a fan with only +12V and Ground connector (2 wires) then speed detection is not possible. You need to change the fan and get the one with 3 pin connector. The 3rd pin/wire is to report the fan speed.

Another thing I want to know is how can I configure Chassis Intrusion Detection & what are its advantages. My motherboard supports Intrusion detection.
There is a sensor on the mobo which detects chasis intrusion detection. Most prolly there would be a jumper on the mobo to enable that. If you pop off the jumper the detection is disabled. I do not think ASUS documents this in the manual. Just lean over the mobo and try to find jumpers for Chasis intrusion detection and put it in there and enable this setting in BIOS, if its there. To test if it works, pull out your mobo and run it naked; if this feature was enable it won't boot past POST.

Lastly I want to know what exactly is AMD Live! or AMD Away Mode. I have enabled it in BIOS & driver is installed. But there is no option in Power Options in Windows(XP MCE or Vista Ultimate) for Away Mode.
Sorry, No idea on this. Don't use AMD proc.

Wow! I'll try it today. ASUS hasn't mentioned if it has inbuilt sensor. Thank you again :)
