AI Suite and Windows 11

New PC arrived today and I am extremely happy. Finally I can use Lightroom, Paintshop etc without going insane :)

Has anyone installed AI Suite on Windows 11. There is only a version for Windows 10 on the ASUS download page for my motherboard.

I ask because the case is noisier than I had expected. There isn't a lot of load going through the system, but the fans sound to be working pretty hard. I wanted to use AI Suite to see what was going on, and fine tune if necessary.

Spec below for completeness.

Thanks all.

I have it on mine and its working fine. I only use it for one fan and my water pump (liquid series) as my other 6 fans are controlled by L Connect but I haven't had any problems with ai suite since updating to windows 11.

Are you sure it's the fans making the noise? I'd expect those hard drives to be quite loud, to be honest, as they're designed for servers, rather than desktop computers.

You could be right. I went in through BIOS and fans are super slow. Hard drive choice was slightly odd because this PC is also serving as primary storgae for my photo library (also backed up to NAS and OneDrive)....not that I'm paranoid about losing the library or anything ;)

EDIT - Nope, it was the fans after all. I downloaded AI Suite and ran the fan tuner. Now the whole rig is almost completely silent. Bliss.
