bought my pc without OS.
i have windows 7 installed and most of my programs are running just fine.
the one that is bugging the hell out of me is AI suite 2.
it installs and runs , but the fanexpert 2 program fails to work.
i have all but given up, and have uninstalled the whole suite.
have read on many sites that asus software is notorious for being......well cack, basically.
is ai suite worth persisting with?
any way, i was wondering, as a general rule of thumb, what is the recommended order for installing software?
below is the order i used, should i have done something different?
1) installed win 7, 64 home prem.
2)installed mobo drivers, off supplied disc.
3) got wifi working.
4) installed IS (kaspersky 2012)
5) updated kaspersky
6) ran windows update
7) installed tune-up utilities. and AI suite 2, but cant remember in which order.
i am willing to start again. BUT, i have read that asus software is not all that!!, is it worth it?
everything else has worked brilliantly.
have loaded a couple of games, music player (foobar), a usb/spdif converter... all ok.
just ai suite 2 which is being a git.
have tried a download version from asus too, just the same.
all i really wnt is to be able to control fans/noise, and monitor temps, when running programs.
thanks for any advice
