l0l sorry about that ,,, i was looking for a quick sale ... a tenner .. tooo much
this item retails @ 92 pounds =p
ok i updated the BIOS on the ideq 210v to the latest revision thinking it mite be just CPU micro code.... booted into windows ....closed the biostrar control fan software ... system crept up to 61c with my sempron 2400+ cpu. heatsink was quite hot to the touch .... so it seems the barebone unit requires the biostar control fan software loaded at all times .... i loaded it and left in sys tray .... smart fans kicked in .. could hear the system fan and cpu fans spin up becase temperate was obviously @ 61c ....temps dropped down to 41c ... then fans slowed down quiter..... everything is normal with the biostar system control fan software loaded ...
in conclusion ....it seems smart fan control on ideqs are not as good as on shuttles . ..it seems shuttles relys on hardware control (does not need software) whereas ideqs needs software to run (thus u need windows and biostar control app installed from the driver cd also included in the box) but im just being honest sales man here ..
