CPU_OPT on ASUS Maximus XIII Hero


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys & Gals.

Fairly new to this sensor panel stuff but still, fairly easy to grasp..... great software and great community.

I found on my ASUS board, where i use a noctua CPU Cooler with two fans, using the CPU and CPU_OPT header, that from an initial bootup, the CPU_OPT will show 0 RPM.

I noticed from time to time it was displaying but took me a while to realise how and why. 

It would display as 0 RPM ... then if i loaded up ASUS armoury crate, click nothing else, just load it up, a few seconds later, the RPM on the sensor panel would start up. It's annoying to have to load up armoury crate each and everytime to get the sensor picked up and hoped there was a solution.

PS I can shut Armoury crate back down once the sensor starts and it will continue to work, until next boot.

Suggestions or Fixes? Am i the onyl one with this issue? MB or COOLER issue ....
