Hello!

I have an important question about DES. Is it works without client program? It is important becouse i won't install Windows to this board, but Energy Saveing is important for me.

Thank you!

Hi!

Does the DES system stop the fan from starting up at boot? I have a ga-ep43-ud3l motherboard and having put everything together on a new system the cpu fan (an intel e7300 cpu and fan) doesn't start from booting up the system, it starts for a second then stops ???... is this supposed to happen on this motherboard?

Thanks,
BLT

@lacyc3

You need to run client program at least once to activate DES, then it starts to work in stealth mode. Have a look here: http://forum.giga-byte.co.uk/index.php/topic,401.msg1975.html#msg1975

@BLT

It's Smart CPU Fan function which is doing this most probably. You can find this option in BIOS in PC Health status menu. If you wait some time until CPU heats up then the fan will start to rotate. No worry about the CPU.

My experience with Linux hasn't been favorable.  I am working with Scientific Linux, based on RedHat Enterprise

It is true that you can boot into Windows and start DES and then let it run in Stealth mode.

When you first boot into Linux, DES will be active, and that is a good thing.

However, at some point in the shutdown process DES is disabled.  This is a double problem, because at the next boot the BIOS will complain that DES has been disabled and the boot process will wait for user acknowledgement (keyboard entry).  This means that when running with DES you cannot remotely reboot a Linux box -- somebody will have to walk over to the keyboard during the boot process.

This is unacceptable to me, so I have to run Linux with DES turned off.
